Think you have to buy a new heating and cooling system in every room? Well, think again! Temperature zoning makes it possible for everyone to be comfortable in every room.

What is a temperature zoning system you ask? In essence, it is a system that allows a consistent temperature in any given region of your home, regardless of the outdoor conditions. No matter sun, rain or snow. To make it simple, each area will have its own climate.

How do I know if I need a temperature zoning system?

  • Does your home have multiple levels and/or levels that are completely or partially underground?
  • Do you have rooms that are rarely used or certain family members that prefer a different temperature in their room?
  • Do you have rooms in your house can be noticeably cooler or hotter during a certain season or time of day?
  • If any of the following apply to you, you may want to consider a temperature zoning system.

    A temperature zoning system is a great addition to almost any home. The temperature distribution in your home is constantly being affected by sun exposure, rain, humidity, walls, ceilings, and windows insulation quality. A temperature zoning system from Casteel will not only help control the temperature in different rooms but it will also save you money on energy bills. Who doesn’t love that?

    …and why do I need one?

    First of all, let me explain zoning. Zoning is something that allows you to cool or heat only those rooms that you choose. If there’s a room in your home that you only use occasionally or a room that gets used at certain times of the day, you can control the temperature and the times the room is at that temperature or another altogether.

    How does it work? It works not unlike setting timers on your lights. The system allows you to set different temperatures for different zones and uses dampers that open and closed based on your settings for each zone.

    What products do we use? We use a Honeywell Zoning System. Honeywell has been using this same idea since 1945 and has developed the technology for today’s homes. Their systems can handle anywhere from two to 32 zones and controls every zone from one device.

    What are the key features? It meets the American Lung Association® Health House® guidelines. Its energy efficient because you are not heating or cooling any areas unnecessarily and there’s a five year warranty.
