Hot and Cold Spots in House

Prevent Cold Rooms In A House

Zoning Panels are the first step in fixing hot and cold spots in a house

 

Does your home's temperature feel like it's the classic children's story Goldilocks and the Three Bears? One room is too hot, one is too cold, and one is just right. Hot and cold rooms in a house can make getting comfortable extremely difficult.

A home's temperature is based on several factors. Temperature is managed by the home’s HVAC system which is controlled via the thermostat.  Thermostat placement is one variable that can create uneven temperatures. If a thermostat is in direct sunlight or directly under an air vent, this can impact the temperature throughout the house. The thermostat will not be sensing a temperature that is representative of the entire living space.

Temperature can also fluctuate depending on the location of the room too. If a room has windows and is subject to direct sunlight, then it can feel warmer than other rooms. Or if a room has cracks in its foundation or around the window sills, then it can be colder and more susceptible to drafts.

Since your thermostat is centrally located and temperatures can fluctuate, these hot and cold spots are a common issue in most homes. A remedy for these issues is a zoning system. 

 

How Aprilaire Can Help With Cold Spots

A zoning system connects multiple thermostats (usually 2) to a set of dampers that can open and close to provide conditioned or heated air to the location where it is needed.  By individually managing temperature in each zone hot and cold and spots are less likely as the conditions of each space are under constant monitoring and adjustment.  

The dampers are integrated into a home’s current ductwork and the zone panel is placed near the rest of the HVAC equipment. Homeowners only need to interact with the strategically placed thermostats – usually placed on different levels of a 2-story home. Control is also possible from a mobile device.

Outfitting your home with a zoning system may also make your home more efficient because conditioned air is being sent only where it’s needed. Aprilaire zoning systems integrate with our line of Wi-Fi thermostats and IAQ controls for the ultimate health and comfort control.
