An HVAC zone system (also referred to as “zoned HVAC”) is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home. This allows for the creation of customized temperature zones throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency.

Do the people living in your house argue about the best temperature to set your thermostat? Is your upstairs constantly hotter than your living room? These are examples of heating and cooling challenges that a standard HVAC can’t always handle.
That’s where the multi-zone HVAC system comes in. A zoned system divides your home into different temperature areas, each controlled by its own thermostat. Which means you can have more control over your home’s temperature and fewer arguments about the perfect thermostat setting.
What are the benefits of a zone system?
While it may seem complex, a multi-zone system makes it easy to regulate your energy use and save you money. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that HVAC system zoning can save homeowners up to 30 percent on a typical heating and cooling bill. A zoned system also allows you to regulate energy use in less frequently used areas in your home by setting them to a warmer temperature in the summer and a cooler temperature in the winter. That means your system works more efficiently to lower your energy bill.
Extra control and comfort
With an HVAC zoning system you have more control over temperature regulation which helps eliminates hot and cold spots around your home. It also means everyone in your home can enjoy the temperatures they prefer in their favorite rooms. Many systems come with the ability to control the thermostat through a remote control or via your phone — making it even easier to keep everyone comfortable.
Better air quality
Since the air in a zoned system is diverted to different areas in your home it keeps pet dander, dust and pollen from being spread throughout the entire house. This is especially helpful for anyone in your home who is susceptible to allergies or has asthma.
