Conventionally, a furnace is used to heat your entire home at once. When your furnace is on, it sends warm air to every room in your house. When your furnace is off, none of the rooms in your house receive warm air. But if your home is like many other homes in the St. Louis area, different rooms warm up at different rates. This can lead inconsistent temperature levels in your home, which can be avoided by using zoned heating. Today we're going to talk about how zoned heating works and 3 common problems that it can solve in your home this winter!
Zoned heating works by sectioning off your home into separate zones. Each zone has a dedicated thermostat that is responsible for maintaining the temperature levels in its zone (and its zone only).
The supply vents in each of your zones are controlled by an electronic damper. When any of the zones in your home need to be heated, your furnace turns on. If any given zone needs to be warmed up at that time, the dampers in that zone are opened and warm air is allowed in. If a zone does not require any warm air at that time, the dampers in that zone are left closed and warm air is not allowed in.
