When HVAC zoning systems were first invented, they were only in commercial buildings. But today, these systems are being installed more and more in residential buildings. This is because HVAC zoning provides many benefits to homeowners that cannot be found elsewhere.

In this blog post, we will discuss 3 of the biggest reasons why homeowners should be making HVAC zoning systems from Arzel Zoning a priority in their homes. But first, what is it? And how exactly does it work?

What is HVAC Zoning?

An Airboss HVAC zoning system installed by Arzel ZoningHVAC zoning systems, also known as zoned HVAC, are designed to regulate airflow. In this way, customized temperature zones can be created throughout the house for increased comfort and system efficiency.

Zoning is the most practical way to control the temperatures in a home. To most easily understand why zoning makes sense, try comparing it to a light switch. A single master switch for all the lights in the house wouldn’t be appropriate, would it? This same principle applies to heating and cooling. One master control for everything is wasteful.

Arzel’s AirBoss HVAC control system features motorized dampers and thermostats for each room or “zone” in the house. In this system, each thermostat’s call is coordinated with the zone dampers in the ducts and the HVAC system, to reroute air to where it is needed. When the thermostat signals a change, dampers will act in accordance, making sure the room is conditioned as desired.

So why should homeowners want this system? The following list is just a few of the reasons why:

1) Comfort

HVAC Zoning can help you stay comfortable year-round by adjusting your home’s temperature in various “zones” automatically based on your preferences and needs. For example, this means a cold spot in your house can finally be made “normal” without turning the rest of the home into a sauna! Naturally, homes can’t be perfect, but with HVAC Zoning you can get ever so slightly closer.

2) Energy Savings

With the HVAC zone strategy of cooling or heating a house, you are able to turn off specific areas of your home, ultimately reducing costs. You will be able to watch as your energy bill gets cut down to size. This can be especially practical for those who own larger homes, with areas of the house that see less frequent use.

3) Flexibility

Not everyone living under the same roof will always have aligning preferences and tastes. With the flexibility that HVAC Zoning provides, conflict can be easily avoided. No longer will there be complaints of things being too hot or too cold. Each zone can get its own unique settings, allowing for everyone to maximize comfort.
