Common Problems with Traditional Heating and Cooling Systems

They Can’t Always Accommodate Everyone’s Temperature Needs

Traditional systems can create hot and cold spots that don’t cater to the temperature needs of everyone. Their outdated mechanisms do not allow them to provide different heating and cooling levels around the house. This results in the entire household having one specific temperature all around.

Thermostat Malfunctions

When it comes to traditional HVAC systems, thermostat malfunction is common. If your HVAC system is short cycling or your home feels warmer than usual, it’s usually the fault of your thermostat. This can be the cause of corrosion build-up, loose screws, or dead batteries.

Mechanical Wear and Tear

An HVAC unit relies on a number of mechanical components to work. Traditional systems are not typically built with modern features and so can experience general wear and tear quicker than newer versions. 

What Are the Benefits of Installing a Zoned Heating and Cooling System?

Controls Each Room or Area of a Home Separately

Zoned control HVAC systems have separate thermostats that can cater to individual rooms. This means that those who prefer the temperatures warmer can set their thermostat higher in a different room than those who prefer it lower.

Eliminates Hot and Cold Spots in Homes

If your kitchen is naturally cooler than your living room, zoned control HVAC systems can override this problem. They eliminate hot and cold spots by targeting areas that are cooler/warmer than others and bringing them up to their desired temperature. 

Cuts Energy Costs by Not Heating or Cooling Rooms That Are Rarely Used

Zoned control HVAC systems can increase energy efficiency by setting rooms that aren’t used as frequently to their own zones. This lets you directly control the temperature and keep heating and cooling to a minimum in areas that don’t require it. You’ll be able to manage the heating levels in summer and winter, which will reduce your energy use and save you electricity and money over time. 

Less Wear and Tear on Your HVAC System

Because the system won’t constantly heat or cool the entire house, it will suffer less wear and tear over the years. It won’t have to work as hard because you can set different zones to be inactive and only heat/cool the spaces you spend the most time in.

Quieter Operation

Zoned systems work quietly in the background and channel cool and warm air to various zones when needed. They do this by only directing heated or conditioned air where it is wanted at certain times, unlike traditional units that blast the heated or conditioned air through the entire home or company building.
