How A Zoned System Makes Sense For Whole-Home Comfort

Posted On: September 09, 2011

Does the temperature never seem quite right in your Highland area home? Do some of the rooms seem impossible to heat? Do others rooms always seem too warm? Are your family members battling over the thermostat, with each member complaining that he or she is too warm or cold? A zoned system may put an end to the thermostat battle, make your home more comfortable and save you money.

What Is A Zoned System?

A zoned system divides your home into different zones and enables you to set specific temperatures for each. Zones may range in size from one room to multiple rooms to an entire level.

Why A Zoned System?

If your home can be described by any of the following, you probably would benefit from a zoned system:

  • Has large open areas with vaulted ceilings, lofts or atriums.
  • Temperature patterns vary according to the time of the day.
  • Has finished rooms in the basement or attic.
  • Has extra rooms over the garage.
  • Has wings that extend from the main living area.
  • Rooms have large windows.
  • Is a multilevel house.
  • Some of house is built over a concrete-slab floor.

Why A Zoned System Makes Sense For Whole-Home Comfort

  • Temperature can be regulated throughout the house, putting an end to the hot room/cold room phenomenon and creating an overall level of comfort.
  • Rooms with more people, such as the living room or kitchen, can be kept cooler. This is particularly ideal if you enjoy hosting social gatherings or parties.
  • The thermostat can be programmed to cool or heat at particular times in particular rooms.
  • You can save money by not heating or cooling the rooms you don’t use.
  • Each family member can adjust the temperature in his/her zone to his/her comfort level, leading to fewer squabbles and increased overall comfort.
