RESIDENTIAL ZONING

Residential Zoning is the idea of a zoning system on your air and heating system is to allow independent control of separate zones, or rooms, of your house.  When the thermostat in that room shows you need heating (or cooling, depending on the season) then it opens the damper and allows air into the zone.

An HVAC zoning system (also referred to as “zoned HVAC”) is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers in the ductwork 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. 

If you find that you have multiple temperatures in different areas in your home and your home has more than one thermostat your zoning may be the issue. Be sure to call our experts to come for a service call.

Is a zoning system right for your home?

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.

Benefits of zoned HVAC systems

Instead of setting one temperature for your entire house, Lennox® zoning systems let you create as many as four temperature-controlled “zones,” so you don’t waste energy overheating or overcooling other areas. In fact, when used with a programmable thermostat, zoning can mean energy savings of up to 35%.* An iComfort® programmable thermostat even lets you adjust the temperature in any zone remotely with a smartphone or tablet.
