An HVAC zoning system is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home. This allows for the creation of customized temperature zones throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency.
Is a zoning system right for your home?
Almost every household can benefit from a zoned HVAC system. That’s because most homes have a room that’s always too hot or too cold, and family members with different temperature preferences. Zoning systems allow you to accommodate those different comfort needs, while also helping you save energy.
Benefits of zoned HVAC systems
Instead of setting one temperature for your entire house, a zoned system lets you create as many as four temperature-controlled “zones,” so you don’t waste energy overheating or overcooling other areas. In fact, when used with a programmable thermostat, zoning can mean energy savings of up to 35%.
