Are you looking for a way to save on energy bills that doesn’t include all new equipment? A zoning system may be the answer for residential homes and commercial buildings that do not need constant heat or air conditioning to all rooms at all times. Adding a zoning system to your existing system is a simple way to add more specific climate control to your home or business.

Benefits of a Zoning System

A zoning system gives you more control over what part of your home or business is heated or cooled. If you have bedrooms that aren’t used for weeks at a time, a zoning system will give you the ability to turn the heat or air conditioning off to those rooms, saving energy and money. If you have a business with upstairs conference rooms used only once a week, a zoning system will allow you to keep the air off upstairs until the day you need it. Adding zones is more cost effective than adding multiple separate systems to a large home or business.

How A Zoning System Works

Motorized dampers will be added to your existing duct work. They will open and close based on the needs of that particular zone thermostat. (For example, if zone 3 includes unused bedrooms, and you need to turn the heat on for visiting company, the dampers to those bedrooms will open when you turn the heat or air conditioning on for zone 3.) You decide how many zones you want and what is included in those zones before the installation of your dampers. Each zone will have its own thermostat.
