In many cases, maintaining an even temperature throughout the home can be difficult. A properly sized air distribution system is the first step to achieving balanced temperatures. While the importance of this should not be underestimated, it is still difficult to achieve balance when sensing temperature from one location in the home. Fortunately, this problem can be solved using a zoned control system.
How Do Zone Control Systems Work?
Zoned systems help achieve maximum comfort by separating your home into sections. It can be as simple as zoning per floor level, multiple zones per level, or by room. This is accomplished by installing motorized dampers in the ductwork, which are then controlled by the individual thermostats for those zones.
Once the zoned system is installed and set up, you can adjust the temperature at each thermostat giving you the flexibility to heat or cool based on demand. These systems are easier to install during the initial stages of home construction but, can be added later due to the availability of multiple damper types and configurations.
Benefits of Zone Heating
Beyond the ability to control the temperature of individual spaces within your home, some other benefits include:
- Energy savings: Only heat and cool the areas of your home that are occupied
- Increased comfort and control
- Easily integrated into existing systems
