My Home is Too Hot and Too Cold

Having rooms in your home that are too hot, while others are too cool, is not an uncommon problem.  Especially in two story homes where heat rises making upstairs rooms uncomfortably warm, when the temperature in the lower level is just fine.

A zoned HVAC system allows your home (or office) to be divided into two or more separate zones with individual temperature controls in each zone. With separate thermostats on each level more cool air can be directed upstairs, while not affecting the temperature at the lower level.

Additional Advantages
There are other advantages of zoned HVAC systems.  Programmable thermostats can be set to not heat or cool areas of your home where and when it is not needed. This saves energy by making the most efficient use of the system. On average, zoned systems can save homeowners up to 30 percent off of their heating and cooling expenses.

HVAC zones are not limited to just upstairs and downstairs.  Creating multiple zones can allow you to accommodate room temperature preferences for different members of your family.  A zoned system lets you control the temperature of each area independently. If someone in your home likes it much colder or warmer than the rest of the household, this can be an ideal solution.

How does a zoned system work?
Just about any forced-air system can be converted or retrofitted for zone control.  Having multiple zones does not require having more than one HVAC unit.

To manage heating and cooling in different zones electronically controlled dampers are installed in your ductwork.  These dampers control the flow of your heated and cooled air throughout your home.  Individual thermostats are placed in each zone and they in turn actuate the dampers as warm or cold air is needed.  Once the desired temperature is reached, the dampers close and air is sent to the rest of your home.
