Do I Need a Zoned Home?

If a few rooms in your residence are more comfortable than others or you have hot and cold spots, these problems could be caused by different factors—but your solution could be a zoned home comfort system. A zoned heating and cooling system allocates your home into two or more zones that are each controlled by their own thermostat. Combining zoning with programmable thermostats can keep you more comfortable and help you lower your heating and cooling bills.

How Does It Work?

A zoned heating and cooling system works using dampers in the ductwork that leads airflow to the designated zones that are calling for heating or cooling. You manage your comfort in each zone with the thermostat installed for that specific zone. Each of the individual thermostats is linked to the control panel that handles your HVAC system.

Is A Zoned Home Right for Me?

Imagine how impractical and inefficient it would be if each and every light in your home were controlled by one switch. Well, that’s essentially the same synopsis as controlling the comfort of all the rooms in your home with a single thermostat. A zoned heating and cooling system gives you personalized control over every zone of your home. Your zones are typically determined by grouping the rooms in your home that have similar heating and cooling needs.

Even if your home is correctly insulated and well-constructed, you may have problems with hot and cold areas. These could be a result of architectural features like multiple stories, large windows and vaulted ceilings. You know that heat rises, so your top floors become warmer than lower floors. That’s why it’s logical to use separate thermostats for the different floors of your home. You can keep the main level warm and send lower amounts of heat upstairs.

Having your home zoned will keep you and your family more comfortable and save you money. If you’re installing a new system, it’s an ideal time to consider a zoned heating and cooling system. You may consider doing a retrofit your present system. The professionals at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can help you no matter what your current system is.
