The purpose of HVAC zoning is to provide availably to customize temperature zones in different parts of the house. Zoned HVAC is ideal solution for 2-story houses to keep them evenly cool in the summer. A multi-zoned HVAC system will cool or heat a larger home more efficiently and more comfortable.

A zoned system designed to serve two or more zones, and you don’t need to install a separate unit to do that. A ducted HVAC with a zoning has motor-driven air dampers to control the air flow of each zone. Each zone would have its own thermostat to control and monitor the temperature. An HVAC zoning system can keep an upstairs cool on hotter days without freezing the downstairs; or it can keep the downstairs warmer on cold days without overheating upstairs rooms.

With the zone control panel, air dampers and thermostats you can create as many zones as you want, reducing energy wastage. Zoning will help you avoid cooling the zoned that need heating, and vice versa. With the programmable thermostat and zoning you can save up to 30% on your energy bill.

Another option for having multiple zones is the ductless mini-split system. This way you can control the temperature in each room, and every resident of your house can have their own desired level of comfort.

When installing heating and cooling systems, there are lots of brands and models to consider.  In addition to that, you need to consider whether you need a single zone or multi-zone system. Talk to our Comfort Advisors to determine your household needs and ask about zoning.
