Why Should I Zone My Home?

A zone in HVAC terminology refers to an area in your home that is separated for air conditioning purposes or based on air conditioning needs or preferences. HVAC zoning technology helps you to keep specific areas of your Fort Pierce, Florida, home at different temperatures. A zoned system gives you more control, which leads to greater comfort and efficiency. Here’s why you may want to zone your home.


When you zone your home, a separate thermostat controls each area. This allows for personalized and enhanced comfort when persons have different requirements for air conditioning comfort. With zoning, everyone is comfortable.

With the control provided by zoning, you can address each need within your home. For example, if a room in which you spend a lot of time receives a lot of sunlight, it will need more air conditioning power. You will be able to provide the right level of air conditioning for that room without affecting temperatures in other areas. Zoning is also perfect for rooms on upper floors. These rooms tend to be warmer as hot air rises. Imagine the waste and discomfort created by setting the thermostat just to keep those rooms cool. You will end up with rooms on the lower level being too cold.


Apart from enhancing comfort, zoning your home drastically increases the efficiency of your HVAC system. Think of all the rooms in your home that are seldom used. Each one of them is receiving conditioned air unnecessarily. This air is wasted in these vacant rooms and reduces HVAC efficiency. By outfitting these areas with their own zoned systems, you can make sure that no air is wasted and your HVAC system is as efficient as possible.

Zoning your home by installing ductless units is an investment, but the resulting control, comfort, and efficiency make it well worth the cost.
