Zoned Heating & Air Conditioning Systems
A zoned heating and cooling system is a lot like a traditional cooling and heating system, but with one important difference. Instead of forcing air into all rooms in the house at the same time, a zoned system is equipped with multiple thermostats.
A zoned system allows you to heat and cool different areas of your home independently of one another by automatically regulating the airflow to each zone. Zoning cuts down on energy waste and provides a more comfortable living environment for each space according to its demands.
AirBest provides zoned heating and air conditioning HVAC system installations throughout Southern California.
What’s involved with a zoned system?
A zoned system uses dampers installed in your home’s ductwork that open and close as needed depending on the temperature setting at each zone. This requires the use of multiple thermostats, one for each zone, and an HVAC system that is capable of zoning.

What are the benefits of a zoned system?
- Decreased home-energy costs. A zoned system increases the efficiency of any heating and air conditioning system, and can decrease heating and cooling costs by as much as 30%. Zoning your home gives you the ability to set your system to more energy-efficient temperature levels in rooms that are not being used.
- Increased comfort in your home. Most HVAC systems work with only a single thermostat that controls the temperature in the entire home. In most homes, one centrally located thermostat cannot effectively control the temperature for the whole house. We’re all familiar with the limitations of such systems. For example, rooms with south-facing windows are generally warmer then north-facing rooms, and rooms with high ceilings need more cool air than rooms with standard ceilings. A zoned system accounts for these different scenarios and allows each zone to meet demands accordingly.
- Convenience. With several thermostats in your home, this zoning system allows you to set the temperature for the room you are in without having to move to another part of the house to make changes.
