HVAC Zoning Services
Offering Zoned HVAC in Beaufort, Lady’s Island & Beyond
Most traditional heating and cooling systems have one centrally located thermostat controlling the temperature of the entire house. With an HVAC zoning system, which is sometimes called “zoned HVAC,” your home can be divided into as many as eight different zones depending on its size and the way you live. Each independent zone will have its own zone sensor which will monitor and control the temperature in its area.

Do I Need Zoned HVAC?
Outfitting your home with a zoned system has many advantages. Almost any home can benefit from zoning, but there are a couple of reasons you might consider it for your home. Zoned HVAC is great if you notice that your home’s temperature is uneven, and it also allows you to maximize the efficiency of your home. Other benefits of HVAC zoning include better indoor air quality, reduced maintenance costs, and an overall more comfortable home.
In some homes, every room does not keep a consistent temperature. Because a standard home HVAC system only has one sensor, it can only precisely control the temperature in one area of the house.
For example, if you have a master bedroom with large, west-facing windows, that room might be warmer in the afternoon. If you set your thermostat to 72 degrees, the actual temperature of the bedroom might be as high as 75 degrees, too warm for comfort.
You can lower the thermostat to compensate, but other rooms in your home might become too cold for other members of your household. Plus, this solution uses more energy, increasing your bill each month.
There are a large variety of factors that can affect the temperature of individual rooms in your home. Zoning helps to offset these differences by allowing you to control the temperatures of specific areas.

Is Your Home’s
Zoned Systems are
More Energy Efficient
Zoning your air conditioning allows you to save money on energy by keeping seldom-used areas of your home warmer in the summer and cooler in the winter.
As an example, if you have a guest bedroom that rarely has occupants, you can program your thermostat to keep that area warmer when nobody is using the room. This flexibility allows you to limit the amount of energy wasted by keeping vacant parts of your house comfortable.
Combined with programmable thermostats, you can even create a program for each zone that adjusts the temperature for the time of day. For instance, you can set the bedrooms to be inactive during the day while the kitchen and living areas are active.
