Air Conditioning Zoning In Washington, D.C., and Maryland
How Do Heating and Cooling Zoning Systems Work?
Zoned HVAC systems regulate air in your home’s zones with dampers in the ductwork, which will open or close based on the needs of a particular space.
Zoning can be categorized in a few ways for HVAC setup. You may have one thermostat on each floor or two separate HVAC systems to control different portions of your home. There is also a version where your system’s main trunk has multiple runs. No matter which way your home is zoned, each is designed to give you more temperature control.
Metro Services HVAC can help determine how many zones your home needs. We will look at your needs to determine whether two — or more — different zones are appropriate for your space.
Why Get an HVAC Zone Control System?
Zoning systems work great for many homes. Your setup will create sections of your house where you can control temperature and humidity. These systems give more heat to colder rooms without expending excessive energy by trying to heat every floor.
Without a zoned system, your thermostat runs off what it knows. If you set it at 70 degrees, it will run until the area where it is located is at that temperature. That means every other room in your house could be hotter or colder than that space.
Zoned HVACs divert air from places that don’t need it, ensuring your home is comfortable without using energy where it’s unnecessary. Over time, a setup like this will save money on your heating and cooling bills.

”The staff was courteous and professional at all times. They cleaned up after themselves. They even provided a fan for me while they were doing the install since my AC was out and it was a hot day.”

How to Know if Zoning Is Right for You
While many homeowners benefit from HVAC zones, it is only necessary for some. Signs that it may be valuable for you and your family include:
- You have rooms that stay at a much different temperature than the rest of the house.
- You have family members who have altering temperature preferences.
- Your top floor stays warmer than the lower floors.
- Your home has large windows.
- You have special rooms with different heating and cooling needs.
- Your home has rooms you use sparingly or get unreasonably stuffy.
- You live in a multilevel home with a basement or attic.
- You have high ceilings or a sunroom.
You should also consider your budget. While these setups are beneficial, they cost more upfront to account for installation and electrical work. Since they are more complex, there may be higher repair and maintenance costs over time. If your budget is tight, be sure to carefully weigh your need for an HVAC zoning system to determine how beneficial it will be.
