One room too hot while another is too cold? Are you caught up in the “thermostat wars”?
Do you turn on all the lights in your entire home with just one light switch? Of course not. You turn on lights when and where you need them. Zoning allows you to divide your home into separate areas, giving you the control and comfort you want.
The only place where the temperature will match the thermostat – is at the thermostat.
Different areas of your house have different temperature needs for your family members. What may be cool to one member may be warm to another. Heat rises up, leaving the main floor cool and second floor bedrooms hot. Cool air settles into the basement. Windows to the south soak up the sun making certain rooms uncomfortably hot, while some rooms feel too cool. Expecting one thermostat in a single room to control temperature variations throughout your home is asking the impossible.
How Zoning Works
A Zoning system uses more than one thermostat, electrically connected to a control panel which operates a number of dampers in your forced air heating/cooling system. Conditioned air is then distributed to various parts of your home as needed. The system can be installed in new or existing homes helping you achieve total indoor comfort.
Are you paying to heat or cool your whole house when you’re only using a portion of it at any given time or when you’re not there at all? A Zoning system allows you to tailor your energy use to your lifestyle, saving you money. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, zoning, combined with a programmable thermostat strategy, could save you up to 25% on your energy bills.
