What is Zoning? How Does Zoning Work?

How can zoning make my house more comfortable?

Are there rooms in your home that never reach a comfortable temperature? If you have a large home you may find that there are rooms or complete floors that are either too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter. A lot of our Akron/Canton clients ask us "How can I keep my whole home comfortable?" One of the ways we can keep the temperature even throughout your home is by installing a zoning system.

What is zoning when it comes to air conditioning and heating in your home?

Zoning is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers to regulate the flow of air through the ductwork of a house. By using dampers, you're able to control the temperature of a large area. 

Zoning is a great way to "zone" off sections of your home - giving you control of the different areas of your home. That way you can set your temperature to what is most comfortable to you. 

Zoning Systems from Honeywell | Forquer Heating & Air ConditioningHow Can I add a Zoning System to My Home?

There are two ways to add a zoning system to your home. The first is with 2 pieces of equipment - one thermostat for each zone. The second way is with electronic dampers and solid state controls. With this option, you're able to control the heating and cooling in your home with one piece of equipment. 

To control the zoning in your home, you can have either a wireless thermostat or a retrofit zoning control. We do a lot with solid state electronics now that offer a single system of control. 

If you're building an addition onto your house and you think it's going to spread the system too thin, we can zone electronically with separate duct work from an existing system or we can add a whole new system - allowing you to have a separate furnace and air conditioning for that section.

The nice thing is zoning basically gives you better control or better comfort throughout the whole structure.

More often than not, the air conditioning unit in your restaurant or office is oversized. Most people think that the bigger the unit, the better they will be able to cool their space. However, if your unit is too large, you could run into a few problems. Issues an Oversized Air Conditioner Can Cause Using an air conditioner that is too large will increase your electric bill, negatively affect your air ducts system, and cause the relative humidity in your building to increase to an uncomfortable level. In a Restaurant: Most restaurant owners will purchase a large air unit to prepare for those 95-degree days, when their dining room is full when they do need that much cooling. However, your restaurant is almost never using the full unit capacity and therefore you are going to have to run the thermostat lower to be comfortable. This ends up costing more in energy than it would if you had a more appropriately sized unit. Using such a large air conditioner also adds more time to your defrost
