How Zoning Systems Can Keep You Warmer in Chilly Weather

With frigid winters in the Chicagoland area, maintaining comfortable temperatures throughout your home can be quite a challenge. Zoning systems can help to make a difference in temperature control and comfort for key areas in your home, even when it’s freezing outside.

Control Each Zone Individually

No matter the size of your home, maintaining a consistent temperature in each room isn’t an easy feat. When your HVAC system operates on a single thermostat, you are bound to have cool zones and hot zones. This is further impacted by factors such as the location of rooms, activities in the rooms, and insulation levels. For example, rooms on lower levels or those that receive little sunlight are generally colder in winter months.

With zoning systems, you can divide your home into multiple sections. A system of dampers in the ductwork determines where to send warm air, and separate thermostats let you control the temperature settings in each zone separately.

Waste Less Energy

One of the biggest problems with a central HVAC system is all of the energy lost in the effort to keep the temperature the same throughout your home. You reduce this energy waste with zoning systems. When you program temperature settings for each zone individually, the HVAC system doesn’t waste energy trying to achieve even temperatures throughout the entire home. Instead, it can power down as soon as it has achieved the right temperature in each zone.

When fall arrives in Chicago, days tend to be sunny and warm, but evenings can be chilly. Zoning systems help you keep the warm air where it belongs without overworking your furnace.
