What Is Home Automation Zoning and How Does It Work?

Smart thermostats merge home automation technology with home zoning capabilities. Using a Wi-Fi thermostat, you can remotely optimize conditions in every area of your Stockbridge, Georgia, home. The benefits associated with home automation zoning include increased energy efficiency and precise control over your indoor environment.

What Is Home Zoning?

Traditional heating and cooling systems lack the capability to heat or cool individual rooms separately. These systems are designed to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the house. Zoning uses a single unit that utilizes a sophisticated network of dampers and thermostats, along with a zone controller. A home zoning system’s ability to heat and cool individual rooms can save up to 50 percent on utility bills.

What Is Home Automation?

Home automation allows you to monitor and control your internet-connected devices more easily and effectively. Your HVAC system is one such device. You can access your smart thermostat through your home automation network and program it to perform various tasks remotely. As you integrate more devices, your home automation network will become even smarter and more efficient.

What Are Some Benefits of Smart Thermostats?

Smart thermostats allow you to change or override current system settings remotely. You can also access system performance and energy efficiency reports from your phone or other devices. You can program your HVAC system to notify you when it needs repairs, maintenance, or a filter change. If a problem develops, the system can send diagnostic information to your HVAC contractor to use while performing remote system diagnostics. The Trane ComfortLinkâ„¢ II XL1050 zoning control has sensors that monitor and optimize indoor temperatures, humidity levels, compressor speeds, efficiency levels, and fan speeds in real time.
