A conventional heating system requires extensive ductwork and large components inside your home. While today's furnaces and boilers are quite efficient, they may not be the best option for some homes without ducts. Traditional furnaces are also limited in the range of comfort they can offer compared to zonal heating systems.
If your home doesn't have existing ductwork or your family has diverse comfort levels, zoned heating may be for you. This heating method has many benefits you should take into consideration when you choose to replace your existing system or install a new one.
- Zonal heat is naturally efficient
Zonal heating is somewhat like space heating in that each zone is controlled individually, but it uses far less energy than either space heaters or central heating units during operation. Because you can split your home into zones, you can avoid heating unoccupied rooms and wasting energy, without sacrificing comfort where you need it.
- Zonal heating is versatile
You can create as many zones in your home as necessary, allowing for truly individualized comfort and maximum efficiency. Typically, a zoned home will have designated heating areas for sleep and daytime. Further zoning may separate the kitchen, family areas, kids' rooms, and a home office. For example, you may want your workspace to be a bit brisk while your living room remains comfortably warm.
- Zonal heating saves energy
Using this type of heating system is a great way to lower your bills through greater energy efficiency; you will also reduce your home's carbon footprint. Zoned heating can help you do your part to go green in today’s energy-conscious age.
