A zoned HVAC system is a system that uses multiple thermostats and dampers to control the temperature in different areas of a building independently. Zoned systems can be more efficient than traditional systems because they can heat or cool only the areas that need it.
Zoned systems can also provide more comfort for occupants by allowing different areas to be set to different temperatures. For example, an office building may have areas with large windows that let in a lot of sunlight, making those areas warmer than other areas. A zoned system can adjust for these differences, providing more comfort for everyone.
Another benefit of a zoned system is that it can help reduce wear and tear on equipment by allowing it to run more efficiently. Instead of running constantly to maintain a set temperature throughout the building, a zoned system can focus on specific areas as needed, which can extend the lifespan of equipment.
