What are the advantages of a zoning system?

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to like different areas of their homes to be cooler or warmer throughout the day. Perhaps you have young children and you want to make sure their rooms are warm in the winter, or maybe you have a rarely used room that you want to keep cooler or warmer.

It might be time to do reseach on zoning systems. Zoning systems are a great way to improve your home comfort and possibly lower your energy bills.

A zoning system splits your house into multiple zones, which means you can modify the temperature for those different zones for increased comfort. An HVAC zoning system uses motorized dampers in the ductwork to control and direct air to those zones to achieve better home comfort.

Who should contemplate a zoning system? It’s a great solution if you have several people with different temperature preferences. Homes that have multiple stories or more expansive floorplans will also benefit from zoning systems, because it may be more difficult to manage the airflow and temps in larger homes.

You can also review the available technology that lets you manage these zones from your phone, tablet or computer—in addition to your thermostat. If you are away on vacation or the temperatures spiked, you can adjust it even if you aren’t at home!
