Ductless HVAC

The Differences and Benefits of Single- and Multi-Zone Ductless HVAC

August 5, 2020

Do you need of a new heating and cooling system in your Cross Lanes, WV, home? A ductless HVAC system is a wise choice. They give you more design flexibility and operate more efficiently than ducted heating and cooling systems. You might be wondering about installing a single-or multi-zone ductless HVAC system. Here are some of the differences and benefits of both:

Single-Zone Systems

Single-zone systems have one indoor air handler and thermostat. When you need heating or cooling, the entire zone reaches the temperature setting. These systems offer ease of installation and are ideal for a home addition, such as a new master suite or family room.

Multi-Zone Systems

Multi-zone systems can have up to four indoor units. This allows you to establish up to four heating and cooling zones in your home. Each zone can have a different temperature on its thermostat. For example, your upstairs could be a zone, your master suite could be a zone, and your living area could be a zone. They’re ideal when building a new home or replacing your entire home’s heating and cooling system, but they’re more complicated and time-consuming to install.

Benefits of Single- Versus Multi-Zone Systems

The benefits of single-zone HVAC systems include low-cost and fast installation and energy efficiency. With a multi-zone system, you save energy by not heating or cooling the areas you’re not using. If you like your bedroom at 65 degrees and your children like their bedrooms warmer, you don’t have to cool or heat the whole house. Each person benefits from a multi-zone system’s customized climate control.

Single-zone ductless HVAC systems are ideal for home additions, small homes and households in which everyone agrees on the thermostat settings. If you’re replacing a heating and cooling system, building a new home or have a household in which different people like different temperatures, multi-zoned HVAC systems offer efficient and customized comfort.
