Air Conditioning Inconsistencies
Many homes have some rooms that are always cooler or warmer than others. This can be due to uneven sunlight, uneven venting, poor air flow or the location of the thermostat. If all these rooms tend to be at different temperatures which room would you put the thermostat in?
Most homes have just one thermostat which controls their heating and cooling system and it measures the temp at just that one location. Put it in a cool room and the thermostat will crank up the heat, put it in a hot room and prepare to freeze everywhere else. The only way to modulate this is by manually opening and closing the vents in the space.
HVAC zoning system is the solution
A zoning system for your HVAC system is a way to control the temperature for each area, or “zone” in your home, rather than have to heat or cool the whole house to the same temperature. With a zoning system, you can set temperatures differently for either individual rooms or sections of your home. Automatic dampers open up the air flow to the room to more conditioning or restrict it for less. Zoning is great because it allows you to save money by not heating or cooling rooms that don’t need it. For example if you live mostly on the ground floor of your home you can set the upstairs thermostat so it isn’t calling for cooling or heating as often.
