Zoning Building HVAC Systems For Increased Comfort and Efficiency

If your building has rooms that are hotter or colder than other rooms, system zoning is an effective way to create a more comfortable environment and increase overall cooling and heating efficiency.

What is System Zoning?

System zoning is pretty straightforward. Multiple thermostats are connected to a central control panel, which operates dampers within the ductwork of the building's forced-air system. Each thermostat constantly measures the temperature of its specific zone, then opens or closes the damper within the ventilation system according to the thermostat's temperature setting.

System zoning can also help save money on your energy bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, system zoning can save up to 30 percent on a typical heating and cooling bill.
