HVAC Zoning

Control the Air in Your North Central Florida Home Zone by Zone!

It can be quite difficult to heat or cool your Gainesville area home evenly. Whether you are noticing hot and cold spots from room to room or the upstairs and downstairs of your home are completely different temperatures, HVAC zoning can truly make a difference.

Zoned heating and cooling systems are much like a traditional heating and cooling system, but with a distinct difference – instead of forcing air into all rooms of the home when the system is running, the system is “zoned” and equipped with several thermostats. This allows you to heat and cool different areas of your home independently—that way, maximum air is pushed to where it is needed most. In other words, zoning cuts down on energy waste and creates a more comfortable living environment for all.

Why Is My Home Heating or Cooling Unevenly?

There a number of factors that can contribute to uneven temperatures in your home, including:

  • Room location
  • Room size
  • The direction the windows and house face
  • Window quality
  • And more

Albeit those combined circumstances, zoning allows you to control the temperature in the rooms of your choice.

How Do Zoned Heating and Cooling Systems Work?

Imagine all the lights in your home could be controlled by one switch. If you had the light switched on, you’d be wasting money and energy by having every single light on at the same time. Believe it or not, that’s how a central HVAC system works—no matter who is in what room of your house, each space will receive the same amount of heating or cooling. By investing in a zoning system, you can create different zones in your home and choose to adjust the temperatures accordingly.

You may be wondering: how exactly does this system work? Zoned heating and cooling systems work by having dampers installed in your home’s ductwork that open and close as needed depending on the temperature setting in each zone of your home.

When a zone is above or below the desired temperature, the dampers open to allow air to flow. Conversely, if the temperature in a zone is adequate, the dampers close. This saves energy and maximizes comfort in the zones of the house that need heating or cooling.

Benefits of Zoned HVAC Systems

There are a number of benefits that come with installing an electronic zoning system in your home, including:

  • Decreased home energy costs. A zoned heating and cooling system increases the efficiency of any heating and air conditioning system. Conversely, it can decrease heating and cooling costs by as much as 30%!
  • Increased home comfort. A typical HVAC system has only one thermostat to control the temperature of the entire house. In most homes, one centrally located thermostat cannot effectively control the temperature for the whole house. There are many factors that can influence the temperature of your home, which varies from room to room. A zoned system accounts for these temperature differences and allows each zone to change when it’s necessary.
  • Convenience. With several thermostats in the house, a zoning system allows you to set the temperature for the room you’re in without having to venture to another part of the house to make adjustments.
  • Quiet performance. Your HVAC system will perform without continually operating at peak capacity and therefore generate less noise at lower speeds.

Should I Install a Zoned HVAC System in My Gainesville Area Home?

HVAC zoning gives you the control, so you can have air flow when and where you need it. In fact, each zone is set up with its own thermostat while electronic dampers are installed in your ductwork. This will allow you to dictate the amount of energy your HVAC system uses and keep the right areas at the right temperatures. This efficient HVAC solution can truly change the way you enjoy your home.
