4 Benefits of a Zoned Heating & Cooling System

It’s near impossible to find the perfect temperature that satisfies everyone, and it’s even more difficult in a commercial building. On top of all the differing opinions, you must consider factors such as the top floor being naturally hotter than the bottom, exposure to the sun, unused rooms, and more. You can’t please everybody, but with the help of a zoned HVAC system, you almost can. A zoning system works by using dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas in your building. If you’re reading this, you might be wondering if your building could benefit from installing a zoned system, and the answer is “Yes!” Here are a few of the many benefits:

1. Energy efficient

With a zoning system, you are in control of which rooms need heating or cooling. This means that you no longer need to worry about wasted energy in seldom used rooms or areas. Even greater, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that a zoning system can lead to savings up to 35% on utility bills.

2. Increased comfort

With the added customization of zoning, you can accommodate occupants with optimal temperature settings. For example, if there’s a floor or office that is exposed to more sunlight, they might require more cooling. The improved environment can help increase productivity as well as comfort.

3. Extended lifespan

If used correctly, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to heat or cool the entire building, prolonging its lifespan. On top of this, you don’t have to worry as much about spending thousands of dollars on a replacement.

4. Improved indoor air quality

Common HVAC systems typically circulate more dust, pollen, dirt, and other pollutants than a zoning system. Ductless zoning, especially, minimizes the accumulation of these particles. This is particularly beneficial for occupants who are more susceptible to health issues and can help contribute to their well-being.
