During the winter, we hear many people complaining about how their homes and businesses suffer comfort control issues. Adjusting the thermostat may make one area the perfect temperature, but other areas become too hot, and some areas can’t seem to heat up enough!
This is a common problem that occurs in traditional heating systems, where one thermostat is used to adjust and control temperatures throughout an entire building or home. Occupants adjust the thermostat to warm their area, but that adjustment makes other rooms too hot.
The solution to this comfort issue is zoning. Zoning systems are installed to work with a home or business’s heating and cooling systems, but instead of heating the home or office as one, the system breaks up the whole space into smaller sections, called zones. Each zone can be heated separately of one another, using the same furnace. Heat is distributed only to where it is needed, so a single thermostat adjustment does not affect comfort in other areas of the home or business.
Homeowners and business owners love zone control because of the personalized comfort control it offers. Thermostat wars are almost inevitable in the wintertime, as everyone seems to feel comfortable at different settings. With zoning, everyone can enjoy the comfort settings they prefer, without affecting the comfort of those in other zones. No fighting, and no discomfort.
Zoning systems also generate energy savings. In traditional systems, turning up the temperature means the heat flow goes up throughout the home – whether or not all areas need it. With a zoned heating system, occupants can turn up the heat only in their zone, conserving energy by not increasing heat across all zones. Zoning systems detect when your zone is heated perfectly, and shut your zone off from receiving excess heat. If another zone calls for heating, it will not affect others.
