An HVAC zoning system (also referred to as “zoned HVAC”) is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers in the duct work to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home. This allows for the creation of customized temperature zones throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency.
Almost every household can benefit from a zoned HVAC system. That’s because most homes have a room that’s always too hot or too cold, and family members with different temperature preferences. Zoning systems allow you to accommodate those different comfort needs, while also helping you save energy.
You should also consider zoned HVAC if you have large windows in your home, a top floor that’s always warmer than lower floors, rooms that you seldom use or that feel stuffy, or special areas like a home office or gym that need additional cooling.
