Zoning in St. Louis

Father Playing With Blocks With His Son On The Floor

Tired of avoiding certain areas of your home because they are notoriously hot (or cold)? Perhaps you’re just tired of fighting over the thermostat setting with certain members of your family who like it warmer or cooler than you do. Keeping everyone comfortable in the home is the gold standard many homeowners are looking to achieve — and it may be easier than you think! 

Instead of a complete overhaul or replacement of your current heating and cooling system, SmartHouse Heating and Cooling can come up with a home comfort zoning system that will give you complete control over your indoor temperatures. 

Zoning: The Smarter Approach to Heating and Cooling Your Home

Zoning is an innovative technique that’s used to determine the best heating and cooling solutions for individual parts of your home. For instance, in the summertime there are many St. Louis homes that suffer from an upstairs that is far too hot. Or in the winter, there may be areas of the home that are prone to staying far too cold. 

Though sometimes these issues can be fixed through better insulation and air sealing, there are also situations where areas of the home may not have been included in the original ductwork design, like a bonus room over the garage or a room that was added after the original construction. This is when home zoning often becomes the best solution! There are many other benefits to zoning your home, including:

  • Lower energy bills
  • Ease of use
  • Increased comfort for all occupants
  • Fewer fights over the thermostat setting

How Home Zoning Works

The name nearly says it all — home zoning is splitting your home into different “comfort zones”. This can be done in two different ways:

  1. Dividing your central ductwork
  2. Strategically placed ductless mini splits

Once your home zones have been identified, all you’ll need to do is adjust the temperature in that room, and voila! That room, and that room only, will maintain the perfect temperature for whoever is occupying it. Since you have better control over your home’s temperature, you’ll significantly slash your energy costs.  This means more money will end up where it belongs: in your wallet.
