Zoned Heating: A Surefire Way To End Your Family’s Complaints About Being Too Hot Or Too Cold

Inconsistent temperatures in your house can be an ongoing source of seasonal discomfort and family disagreement. This problem is especially prevalent in multiple-story homes and larger ranch-style houses. Since warm air rises and cold air sinks, upper floors are naturally going to be hotter than lower ones, while ground-level areas and basements will be cooler than upper floors.

This law of physics means that family members can easily find themselves in a room that’s too hot or too cold for them. A solution to this home-comfort dilemma is a zoned heating or cooling system.

A zoning system allows you to have separate temperature controls for individual areas, floors or rooms in your house. This gives family members greater flexibility in setting a temperature that is comfortable for them while overall thermostat settings are maintained elsewhere in the house.

Zoned systems operate using a network of motorized dampers and multiple thermostats to provide independent temperature control. In this way, zoned heating and cooling eliminates problems with rooms being too hot or too cold for individual taste A zoning system can also reduce energy use by as much as 25 percent.

Another advantage to zoned heating and cooling systems is that they let you divide areas of your home based on similar heating and cooling needs during specific times of the day. When everyone is away at work or school, for example, a zoning system can reduce the amount of heating or cooling in your home’s bedrooms. In the evening, the system can be set to increase heating or cooling in these rooms before everyone gets home.
