Understanding How Central HVAC Zoning Works
Would you like to customize the temperature room-by-room in your Indio, CA, home? Central HVAC zoning provides the ultimate solution for maximum climate control in your home.
What Is a Central HVC Zoning System
A zoned system lets you control the temperature for designated areas in the house. You could choose to adjust the indoor climate by room or by area. For example, since heat rises, you might want to drop the temperature several degrees on the second story of your home to make it more comfortable without affecting the temperature on the lower level.
Zoned heating and cooling is also beneficial in larger homes where climate control can be tricky. When you divide your home into zones, you can adjust the temperature according to necessity and preference.
How a Zoning System Works
The secret to HVAC zoning is its motorized dampers. These dampers regulate and redirect airflow throughout the house by opening and closing inside the ductwork.
The system relies on a programmable thermostat that controls the temperature room-by-room or area-by-area. The thermostat is programmed to tell the dampers when to open and close, seamlessly heating and cooling specific areas.
Zoning systems integrate with your current central HVAC system, meaning you don’t have to install a brand-new heating and cooling system. They’re a cost-effective way to upgrade your system and enjoy maximum comfort throughout your house.
How to Choose the Right Central Zoning System
Before a zoning system gets installed, a qualified service technician must determine the following:
- HVAC system size: You must have the right-sized system installed so it doesn’t strain the HVAC system.
- Ductwork size: Properly sized ducts ensure maximum airflow gets to each zone.
Central HVAC zoning not only allows you to customize the temperature for different areas of your home. It also helps you use your HVAC system more efficiently. Many people discover their energy bills cost less with a zoning system.
