Benefits of Zone Heating


The use of zone heating in both commercial and residential spaces has become the accepted “best practice” of the HVAC industry. Not only can it save you money, but it can also help the environment. Keep reading to learn about more reasons why homeowners in Northwest Ohio choose zoned heating systems!

Zone Heating Provides More Control

Home and business owners with forced-air heating systems can also create multiple zones by using two or more thermostats connected to a master control panel. Programmable thermostats in each zone can then feed information to the master control panel. The system will then automatically open and close dampers that are installed within the ductwork to regulate the temperature in each zone separately. The result is warmer, more comfortable areas when you are using them and cooler, more cost-efficient ones that are not in use.

Zone Heating Saves Money

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a zoned heating system can save home and business owners up to 30 percent on a typical heating and cooling bill. For homeowners, this means an overall 10-15 percent reduction in their monthly energy bills. The percentage savings for commercial spaces vary a lot more but can still be significant. These systems are a little more expensive to install but the savings generated every month can eventually pay for the upgrade.

Zone Heating Systems Are Quiet

Zone systems don’t need to force heated air into all of the zones of a home or business at the same time. This reduced demand means that the system can operate at lower speeds and with a lot less noise. It also means that the system can deliver peak performance coupled with optimal levels of working efficiency. In short, a zoned HVAC system will provide the very best living and working environment on the inside no matter what the outside temperature may be.

Zone Heating Lasts Longer

Modern HVAC systems are designed to be extremely durable—lasting two decades or more— and highly reliable. Unfortunately, some owners overwork their single zone, central air systems for one reason or another. The use of a properly designed and installed zoned system, however, reduces the strain on all facets of the system—especially the core unit that actually produces the heat. Owners with a zoned system can expect 25 or more years of productive, efficient, and reliable service from the unit.
