29 Oct 3 Valuable Ways a Zoned Heating System Can Improve Your Life
By letting you control your home temperatures on a room-by-room basis, a zoned heating system gives you the perfect blend of comfort and convenience. The experts here at Cliff Bergin & Associates are breaking down exactly how these systems work (and how they can benefit you) below.
What Is Zone Heating?
Put simply, it lets you divide your house into “zones,” enabling you to set different temperatures in different areas. Using a series of thermostats and HVAC zone dampers, a zoning system helps your furnace deliver varying amounts of heat to different spaces. Want your bedroom colder than the living room? Have annoying cold spots in the house? Simply adjust the thermostats in those areas for personalized comfort.
How Does Zone Heating Work?
The whole setup works using two parts: thermostats and dampers. For example, say you’re hosting a game night and you want to make the first floor—and only the first floor—warmer to accommodate your guests. When you adjust the downstairs thermostat, zone dampers inside your ductwork adjust along with it to redirect more heat into that space. And it can work for any area: first floors, second floors, basements, you name it.
Why You’ll Want a Zone Heating System in Your Home
Everyone has temperature preferences. While some might like it cooler indoors, others in the house might want it warmer. With zoned heating (and cooling), you can customize temps across the house to make everyone happy.
Energy-Efficient Heating and Cooling
With an HVAC zoning system, you don’t have to waste energy heating up your whole house just to make one area warmer. Instead, you use only the energy necessary to make that zone more comfortable.
The days of having to trek to a different floor just to turn up the heat are gone. With a zoning system, you’ll have multiple thermostats at your disposal, each one designed to control a different space. So, if you’re upstairs and start to get chilly, simply adjust the thermostat near you. You’ll warm up in no time, and you won’t affect the temperature anywhere else in the house. Or consider upgrading to a Wi-Fi thermostat. That way, you don’t even have to get up to change the temp—you can do it straight from your smartphone.
