What Is Zoned Air Conditioning? Do I Need It?
Do you have problems keeping the temperature consistent from one level to the next in your home? Does one person prefer it colder? If you’re having these comfort problems in your home come summertime, upgrading to a zoned air conditioning system could be a great choice for you. But what is zoned air conditioning? It’s a system that uses thermostats and duct dampers to control the temperatures in different areas of the house.

What Is a Zoned Air Conditioning System?
A zoned air conditioning system is a network of thermostats and duct dampers that control the amount of cooled air each zone (one or more rooms) receives throughout the day. Zoning technology allows homeowners to cool only the occupied areas of living space at any given time and set different temperatures throughout the house.
For instance, if you are reading the newspaper in the living room, you don’t need the lights on in the upstairs hallway and bedrooms. With a zoning system, you may cool (and heat) specific areas of your choosing in much the same way. This can also help solve problems with temperature differences from one level of your home to the next.
Will a Zoned System Lower My Energy Bill?
A zoned air conditioning system is designed with comfort and energy efficiency in mind. Consider this: the more difficult it is to maintain agreeable temperatures and comfort throughout your home, the more money you may potentially save on your energy bills.
For instance, if your home has two or more levels of living space or has a sprawling floor plan, a zoned system will maintain optimal comfort levels in each area of your home with the use of zoning thermostats. If the second floor is unoccupied during the day, you may turn off those thermostats (or use programmable thermostats for ultimate convenience, comfort, and savings) to save energy. During sleeping hours, you can keep the upstairs bedroom zones nice and cool while the downstairs zones are “off”—diverting the cooled air upstairs with the automatic duct dampers.
What Is the Process for Installing a Zoned Air Conditioning System?
Any HVAC upgrade involves a series of home-efficiency diagnostics to determine the heat gain/loss of your home’s envelope. Sealing up air leaks and boosting insulation, if needed, increases the benefits of a zoned air conditioning system. Most importantly, you will need to work closely with a one of our experienced HVAC technicians to design the best zoned air conditioning system specific to your household’s needs.
