Have you noticed that, even though you have central heating and cooling, certain areas of your home are uncomfortably hot or cool? Have you ever fought for control of the thermostat because you like it cooler, but other people in the house like it warmer?
Those issues are some of the ones that accompany traditional central heating systems. However, there is a solution! Multi-zone heating and cooling systems offer a number of benefits to creating a more seamless home comfort experience.
Central heating and cooling create a single, solid temperature throughout your home. That’s okay for some homes, but not for every home. Multi-zone heating and cooling systems can create a different temperature in each zone to allow for individualized comfort in every room.
For example, let’s say you like your living room a bit cooler and your bedroom a bit cooler — zoned heating and cooling lets that happen!
Many multi-zone heating and cooling systems allow you to adjust the temperature of your zone from the same room you’re already in — so no more having to trek across the house to adjust the thermostat. Plus, the systems also usually come with remote controls that allow you to easily change the humidity levels and fan controls.
Even though it may seem as though creating different temperatures would use more energy, that’s not the case! Since you can set different temperatures in each zone, you can turn down the temperature in rooms you don’t use as often in the winter and turn up the temperature in those same rooms during summer. That means you’ll spend less money treating the air in rooms that don’t need it.
