Replacing Your HVAC System? A Zoning System Makes Sense, and Here's Why - Glasco Heating & Air Conditioning

Are you having trouble controlling the thermostat, staying comfortable and keeping costs down? Is your bathroom always too cold or the upstairs bedroom too hot? Do you use space heaters in winter or window units in summer to keep everyone happy and healthy? If you’ve answered yes to one or more of these questions, an HVAC zoning system can help you control costs and still be comfortable.

Keeping all the areas of your home comfortable is difficult because each room has a unique location and use in your home.  The morning sun overheats a bedroom; cooking heats up your kitchen. The fireplace or woodstove heats up the living room and triggers the thermostat to shut down the furnace prematurely. In a single zone system, no matter where the thermostat is, the reading is going to be inaccurate for some areas. Hot air rises; cold drops. One thermostat simply cannot monitor the temperature throughout your entire home, or satisfy the different comfort demands of different family members.

But zoning systems can. In a zoned system each room, level or area has its own thermostat that triggers motorized vents and supplemental ductwork fans, as needed. Most homes will require two or three zones for good control. Depending on your system’s design, you can control temperatures from one central location as well as in each area.

Zoning systems will control temperatures in each room or living area, making everyone more comfortable and saving you money at the same time. Program thermostats in each area separately. Cool or heat one area of your home at a time. You can see a reduction of up to 25 percent in your fuel bill with zoned heating and cooling.
