If you're having trouble balancing your home's HVAC system to evenly heat or cool your home, consider adding a zoning system. The system consists of multiple thermostats connected through a zone control panel to dampers that control the airflow in your ductwork. When you adjust the temperature in a zone, the dampers in the system open or close to make the area cooler or warmer. A zoning system can also save on your energy bills, and ensure all areas of your home are comfortable.
When does adding a zoning system make sense?
What do you need to install for a zoning retrofit?
While you can do-it-yourself, adding a zoned system to your home requires that you know the total cubic feet per minute of air produced by your HVAC system, as well as considerable mechanical knowledge. It's a big project, so call a professional if you don't have the experience or confidence to complete it on your own.
