What is an HVAC Zoning System?

Zoning is simply a way of dividing a home into areas with similar cooling and heating needs. You wouldn’t have just one light switch for your entire home. With zoning, you can have the same flexibility with your temperature as you do with your lighting, by independently controlling different areas of your home according to their needs and occupancy. The benefits of a Carrier zoning system include:

  • Temperature and humidity level optimized in each zone
  • Increased energy savings and energy efficiency
  • Eliminate hot and cold spots
Why Purchase an HVAC Zoning System?

Zoning can be beneficial for homes with multiple levels, large open spaces, or areas with varying heating and cooling needs. It helps improve energy efficiency by directing conditioned air only to occupied zones, reducing energy waste.

Most homes have differing comfort needs in different areas. Warm and cozy in the family and comfy at night for better sleep in the bedrooms...and the basement is largely unoccupied. We put you in control with the ability to set different temperature settings in up to eight areas in one home. Just set the temperatures on the thermostat and help direct comfort to areas that need it.

How Do HVAC Zoning Systems Work?

HVAC zoning systems offer personalized comfort control by dividing a home into separate zones, each with its thermostat. These systems use dampers in the ductwork to regulate airflow to different areas, allowing for individual temperature settings in each zone.

Zoning systems can enhance comfort by eliminating temperature variations throughout the home. Installing an HVAC zoning system typically involves retrofitting existing ductwork or incorporating zoning capabilities into new HVAC installations. Consulting with your local Carrier dealer can help determine if zoning is suitable for your home and how best to implement it.
