Heating and Cooling in Your Home or Business
You’ve probably noticed that your home or business does not heat or cool evenly in each room. If one room gets a lot of sun, it’s probably harder to keep it cool on a hot day in comparison to the room on the other side of the house that never gets sun. If you have a basement, pushing cold air down there on a hot day might make it too cold to be comfortable. And, if you have an attic with a lot of sunlight and the thermostat is on another floor, your cooling system won’t know that it needs to push more air into the attic to keep it cool. This is where thermostat zoning can help.
The Basics of System Zoning
The most important part of thermostat zoning is the programmable thermostat. It’s basically the brains of the system. When you put individual thermostats in rooms that aren’t heating or cooling evenly, you can program them so that the flow of warm or cold air will adjust according to the current conditions of that room. For example, if you had a thermostat in your hot attic, you could program the zoning system to allow more or less cold air to be delivered to the attic based on its current temperature or time of day. When more cooling is needed, the thermostat in the attic sends a message to the zone control panel, which then opens or closes a series of zone dampers in your ductwork system to regulate the temperature in the attic. There are many benefits to this, including:
- Saving on energy costs by lowering, or turning off, heating or cooling in rooms that don’t need it
- Making each room comfortable so that you’re not wearing a wool sweater in one room and a tank top in another on the same day
- Being able to control each room’s temperature to the satisfaction of the individual requirements of the person using the room
- Programming your individual thermostats around the unique activity patterns of your family or employees
