The Advantage of Multi vs. Single-Zone HVAC Systems

Nashua Homeowner Discovers

A multi-zone heating and cooling system can solve the problem of uneven temperatures throughout the home, eliminating hot and cold pockets in rooms. You can also adjust different the temperature to various areas. With a single-zone system, the entire home will be set to one temperature.

A Nashua homeowner was installing a new heating and cooling system in his home. He was debating whether to stick with his single-zone system or to upgrade to multi-zone and sought our advice.

For Comfort and Energy Savings, Multi-Zone is the Way to Go

After asking a few questions, we discovered that this homeowner had a common problem with single-zone homes. He had rooms where the temperature was dramatically different from the rest of the house. In the wintertime these rooms would be several degrees cooler than the thermostat, and in the summer several degrees warmer.

A multi-zone system would easily solve this temperature imbalance, offering multiple thermostats controlling areas of the home. Not only would this make the home more comfortable overall, but the added control can significantly affect the home’s energy use. Areas of the home that are not used as often could be set at a lower temperature in the winter and higher in the summer. This thermostat adjustment could mean big savings in energy costs.

Multi-Zone System More Costly than Single-Zone

The comfort and energy savings that go along with a multi-zone system do come at a price. The installation costs for this system are higher, requiring more complex duct work and more equipment. While it is possible to convert a single zoned system to multi-zone, there are additional costs associated with this as well.
The homeowner in Nashua realized that the savings over time would be significant and that his comfort was well worth the investment. He opted to install a multi-zone heating and cooling unit and is enjoying the winter months comfortably throughout the entire home.

Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!
