Efficient Heating: Is Zoning Right for Your Home?

If you’ve found this blog post while looking for a way to efficiently heat your home, then you’ve come to the right spot! When you use your heater as much as we do here in Chicagoland, it’s only natural that you want to find a way to do so while still saving money. The good news is you don’t have to pay an arm and leg to heat your home each year. One significant way you can save is by investing in a zone control system.

What Are the Benefits of Zone Controlled Heating?

A zone control system consists of some basic components. It’s equipped with a central control panel, which is integrated into your existing HVAC system. Multiple thermostats are then installed throughout your home, one in each temperature zone (hence the term zoning). Each thermostat is wired into the control panel, as are multiple electronic dampers, which are installed throughout your ductwork.

Each time you adjust the temperature of any given thermostat, its corresponding damper will adjust and modulate the output of your heating system to that specific area of the home. This means you can maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home, instead of heating your whole home while only a portion of it is being occupied.

This means that not only will you be able to improve comfort for your entire family with custom temperature control, but you’ll be able to cut down on your energy use as well. Winters here are nothing to contend with, however different family members are going to have different heating preferences, and therefore it is extremely beneficial—for both your family and your wallet—to allow them each their own control over their heating.
