Blind & Sons has been keeping your community comfortable for 75 years, and while you’re certainly familiar with our company, you may not be familiar with all of the services we provide. For instance, did you know that Blind & Sons offers a solution that will give your family complete control over heating and cooling throughout your home while helping you to conserve energy? It’s called zoning, and it may be just right for you.

Zoning allows you to customize your heating and cooling by dividing your home into zones with similar heating needs. There are many reasons to consider zoning for your own home. For example, many houses have areas that tend to get especially warm, or stay especially cool, even while other rooms are comfortable. This is common in two-story homes, with most having an 8 to 10 degree difference in temperature between floors. Ranch homes sometimes have a similar problem, with one end of the home staying much cooler or warmer than the other. Zoning helps homeowners to eliminate this problem by controlling the temperature separately in each area of the home.

If you have rooms in your home that are seldom used, such as guest bedrooms or a formal dining room, zoning will allow you to easily choose when and how much to heat these areas, so you can conserve energy when they’re not in use.

Families often disagree on how warm or how cool a home should be, and zoning puts those arguments to rest. Different people are comfortable at different temperatures, so why not offer your family greater control? Zoning gives you more options, with the ability to meet individual heating and cooling needs.  

In addition to offering greater comfort to each member of your family, zoned heating and cooling can help you save up to 30 percent on your utility bills, according to the Department of Energy.

For even greater energy savings, consider installing programmable thermostats along with zoning. These thermostats will give you even greater control, allowing you to program your zones to heat or cool to specific temperatures at different times. For instance, you might choose to have bedroom zones cooled during the night only, or you could heat zones including the kitchen and living room only during the day. By combining these two solutions, you’ll deliver just the right temperature to just the right zones, at just the right times.
