What Is Home System Heating & Cooling Zoning?

Ever wonder why some rooms of your house get much warmer or stay cooler than others? There are plenty of reasons why this may happen, but there is only way to even out the problem – system zoning.

There’s a good chance you have more than one thermostat in your house, which means you have more than one heating or cooling zone. Each thermostat takes a read of the temperature in its “zone” and then opens or closes the dampers within the ductwork to reflect the thermostat’s temperature setting.

System zoning is a wonderful way to save on your energy bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, system zoning can save homeowners up to 30 percent on a typical heating and cooling bill. How so? Rooms that aren’t used often don’t need constant heating or cooling. System zoning allows you to turn the heat down or the air conditioning up when nobody is in the room.
