Are you tired of the war of wills with your spouse or other family members over thermostat settings? We have all experienced it: this room is just right for one person but not for others and vice versa.
Keeping a home climate controlled to the satisfaction of all is tough and sometimes some areas or rooms of your home do not cool down or heat up as consistently as others. This can be a result of many issues, including faulty system installation, subpar maintenance or perhaps even a bad thermostat. Ductwork leaks can also cause uneven heating/cooling.
The answer to your heating and cooling problems may be the installation of an HVAC zoning system for your home. Dividing your home into distinct areas or zones enables you to customize the climate control in each zone,based on the HVAC issues and needs of each zone. A zoning system permits individual control of temperatures in each zone, which are monitored by its own dedicated thermostat. For example, a lower or higher temperature can be maintained in the living room than in the upstairs bedrooms.
With a zoning system you will notice improvements in:
- A zoning system shuts off or reduces heating and cooling in zones not in use, thereby making your system more efficient and longer lasting. In addition, it may save you up to 30 percent on your heating and cooling bills.
- Temperature control in different rooms with just one thermostat can be problematic, especially in multi-level homes with uneven heating/cooling from floor to floor. Zoning reduces these and other temperature variations created by such problems as shading, vaulted ceilings, etc. by programming each zone’s thermostat accordingly.
- With zoning, you have the control over where and when your system is heating and cooling. A zoning system also provides the convenience of managing each zone with one universal remote control or control panel, eliminating the need to go from room to room to set a thermostat.
