Beginner’s Guide: What is Home Zoning?

Have you heard of home zoning for your heating and air conditioning? If your home is full of hot and cold spots and you can never quite get the temperature right, it might be a great option. Before you decide one way or another, check out this guide to home zoning.

What is HVAC Zoning?

HVAC zoning is a way to manage the temperature in different areas, or zones, in your home. It allows you to set the thermostat for each zone depending on your preferences and how and when you use those areas.

How Does Zoning Work?

Heating and air conditioning zoning works with dampers installed in the ductwork in your home. They open and close to allow cool or warm air to get to some rooms but not others. The damper system controls the temperature of each zone.

Zoning Benefits

There are some great benefits of installing a zoned system. The biggest is the ability to customize your heating and cooling to suit your lifestyle and how you use the rooms in your house. It also lets you and your family adjust the spaces they use the most to fit their own comfort preferences. Another benefit is the energy efficiency you’ll gain. When you don’t cool and heat all areas of your home to the same level, you use less energy, reducing your monthly utility bills. If you’re looking for a new way to cool and heat your home with custom temperatures for different areas, zoning might just be the way to go.
