When The Kitchen’s Always Too Hot, And The Family Room’s Never Warm Enough, It’s Time For A Zoning System

If you live in a household with more than one occupant, disagreements over the thermostat are bound to arise. While some of this may be due to personal preference, sometimes it just comes down to the layout and location of your home. Upper floors, for example, are going to remain warmer due to the natural tendency of heat to rise. Rooms containing a significant amount of windows are going to be warmer in the sunshine, but cool off considerably at night. Instead of playing tug-of-war with the thermostat, it may be time to consider a zoning system.

Zoning systems utilize multiple thermostats and motorized dampers to give you complete control over the distribution of conditioned air throughout your home. Depending on the unique needs of your household, these thermostats can be assigned to entire regions of your home or to individual rooms. That means you can increase upstairs cooling to compensate for the natural rise of heat, or adjust the climate of a heavily windowed room according to its unique temperature needs.

Consider some of the reasons zoning systems might be beneficial to your household:

  • You have a need for different room-to-room temperatures.
  • Varied household routines require certain rooms be conditioned at certain times of day, but not at others.
  • There are multiple levels to your household.
  • You have finished rooms over your garage, basement or attic.
  • Your home contains vaulted ceilings, lofts or heavily windowed rooms.
  • Some of your home is built on concrete slab.

With zoned temperature control you’ll finally have total control over your household climate, putting an end to years of needless bickering over the settings of your thermostat. What’s more, you’ll save in annual heating and cooling bills. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that zoned temperature control in conjunction with a programmable thermostat can reduce energy costs by as much as 30 percent annually.
