Your house might benefit from zoning if parts of it were built using different materials or standards
Do you notice that one part of your house is consistently hotter or cooler than the others? Are you constantly having to reset the thermostat because someone in your household prefers a different temperature, or because the room you are in has become progressively warmer throughout the day? You may want to consider zoning your home so that you can control the temperature separately in different areas, or zones. Multiple thermostats are used instead of one central thermostat to measure and adjust the temperature in several different locations. As a result, you can save energy by preventing some rooms from overheating or overcooling, and reducing the heating and cooling loads in empty rooms. Having a zoning system might not be a necessity for every home, but it might be a good idea if certain conditions are met. You may want to consider zoning if some rooms in your home receive more direct sunlight than others or if your home has two or more stories. Your house might benefit from zoning if parts of it were built using different materials or standards. When you add an addition to an older house, you may encounter this problem. Typically, the newer portion is likely to have different insulation ratings and different HVAC needs.
