Why Heating Zones Are Energy- and Cost-Efficient

When you’re looking to optimize your electricity use across your home and throughout the seasonal changes, heating through proper zoning is the best solution. If you distribute the heat throughout your whole home, you’ll no doubt encounter problems because of the different needs of each room and occupant. However, if you allow the heating to become zoned and customized, you’ll find that you use less electricity and everyone stays happier.

 

How Do Heating Zones Work?

Through the use of dampers in your ducts, you can control the heat electronically through different thermostats. For each zone, there is a thermostat that controls the electric dampers in the heating system ducts. The zone’s occupant can then control the temperature in that area.

What Are the Benefits of Heating Zones?

When you have a customized heating plan throughout your home, you are actually managing your energy consumption better. Instead of maintaining a constant temperature for several hours throughout your home, you can just heat specific zones when the space needs it.

You don’t need to heat rooms in the higher parts of your home completely. Your family members or housemates can adjust the temperature in their own zones. If some of them prefer the cold, they can always reduce the amount of heat delivered to their area.

Your utility bills are also going to decrease if you adhere to this customized heating and cooling scheme. Since you aren’t regulating temperature throughout the whole house 24 hours a day, you don’t have to pay as much as others with a blanket heating system.
