Zoning Your Home
Zoning what it is, How it works
Do you have a floor in your home that is hard to cool? In most cases that would be the upstairs. With heating, that would be the lower level. Did you know you can have your Air conditioning and Heating system zoned? You can with a thermostat for each level. You will have full control of the temperature of each floor. Each level of your home will be controlled by dampers that open and close to heat or cool that specific area.

- Energy Efficiency: Zoning allows you to heat or cool specific areas of your home independently. Consequently, you don’t waste energy and resources on rooms that don’t need it. By only conditioning the spaces that are currently occupied or in use, you can significantly reduce your energy consumption. This, in turn, leads to lower utility bills.
- Customized Comfort: Zoning provides individualized comfort for different zones in your home. This is particularly useful if different family members prefer different temperature settings. For example, you can keep the living room warmer in the winter; meanwhile, maintaining a cooler temperature in the bedrooms. All the while, you can accomplish this at the same time.
- Reduced Wear and Tear: Zoning can extend the lifespan of your HVAC system. By allowing your system to focus its efforts where they are needed, it doesn’t have to work as hard. Consequently, this reduced workload can lead to less wear and tear. As a result, you may experience reduced maintenance and repair costs, increasing the longevity of your system.
- Professional Installation: The installation of a zoning system is not a DIY project. It requires professional expertise and a comprehensive assessment of your home’s layout and needs. We will design and install the system. This ensures it operates efficiently and effectively.
- Compatibility: However, not all HVAC systems are easily compatible with zoning. It’s crucial to determine whether your existing system can be retrofitted with a zoning system or if you need to upgrade your HVAC system to make zoning possible. This is especially relevant for older systems or those with limited ductwork, which may present challenges.
- Cost: While there is an upfront investment in installing a zoning system, it’s important to note that the long-term savings on energy costs can offset this initial expense. The cost of installing a zoning system can vary widely based on several factors. These factors include the complexity of your home’s layout, the type of HVAC system you have, the number of zones you want to create, and the type of dampers and thermostats used.
