What Does Dual Zone HVAC Mean?

If you’re like many people, you may have discovered that some rooms in your home are far too hot while others seem to be freezing cold all of the time. While you can certainly contact us to rule out any potential problems with the system itself, it’s important to realize that the problem may not be with your unit. Instead, you may simply need a dual zone HVAC system to keep your home at the right temperature.

What It Is

Dual zone systems have several zone systems and thermostats to help effectively control the temperature in your home. That means that you can set a given temperature in one area and a completely different temperature in another. Likewise, you can set the same temperature in both, and expect those results throughout. Often these systems consist of a single heating element and an air conditioner coil that serves two very different segments of ductwork. Additionally, they contain more temperature control panels. It can be installed as part of a new system or as a retrofit to an existing system.

How Do You Know If You Need One?

Not sure whether you need a dual zone unit? You might in several different situations. If you have multiple stories or vaulted ceilings, a dual zone unit might be right for you. Additionally, if you’ve continually experienced times when you can’t seem to keep both parts of your house at the same temperature, this might be a good choice. Finally, if part of your home is unused on a frequent basis, it may be a useful system to install.
