Zoned heating and cooling can save you money on your energy bill


Are some rooms in your house warmer or colder than others? Do you have a fireplace near your thermostat that throws off the temperature in the rest of the house all winter long?

The solution may be a simple one: zoned heating and cooling.

You wouldn’t rely on one light switch to control the lighting throughout your whole house, so why rely on one thermostat to control the temperature in every room? A zoned heating and cooling system includes multiple thermostats wired to a central control panel. When one area of the house is at the ideal temperature, the heating or cooling is turned off just to that area.

It’s a great system for inconsistent houses, or for houses where different people like to have their rooms set at a different temperature.

Here’s a look at how the Lennox Harmony Zoning System works.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a zoning system can save you up to 30 percent on your energy bill.
