Creating Zones Provides More Precise Control Over Individual Room Temperatures
If you live in an older home, you may have had the challenge of maintaining a consistent temperature in various rooms. Some rooms are too warm while others are too cool. Often this is due to the fact that your home includes:
- Several levels or a finished basement
- An addition over a garage or patio
- Rooms with many windows
- High ceilings
When certain room temperatures are difficult to control, some families invest in space heaters in the winter and window air conditioning units in the summer to try and make the room more comfortable. Proper zoning can provide a better alternative solution.
What is a Zoning System?
A zoning system is a way to partition a home into independently controlled zones for enhanced comfort. Not only is zoning helpful for houses with inconsistent room temperatures, it’s ideal for heating or cooling individual rooms based on how often they are used. For example, if you are caring for elderly parents or a sick child, you can raise the temperature of that room—providing added warmth while maintaining a cooler temperature in the rest of the home.
Benefits of Zoning
- More control over your home comfort level
- Increased energy efficiency
- An extended lifespan for your overall heating and cooling system
