What is System Zoning?

There will be times where the rooms in your home will be warmer or colder than the others. This can be explained in many ways. For one, rooms on the third or second floor will often be warmer since heat rises. In turn, basements will be too cold. Rooms that receive long hours of sunlight are often difficult to cool down, while rooms with vaulted ceilings  have difficulties holding heat. Although there are a few reasons, there’s only one way to ensure your rooms are getting the right temperature: zoning.

System zoning involves multiple thermostats that are wired to a control panel that operates dampers in the ductwork. These dampers open and close to let more or less air in the room to achieve the desired temperature. The dampers can be closed fully to avoid blowing into rooms that are unused or empty. Just shut the door, close the damper, and you’re good to go.
