Comfort Zoning System
We heat or cool our homes to keep our family comfortable. But, a single thermostat in the living room can’t always keep the upstairs cool or the basement warm. Fact is, you may feel a 12 to 15 degree difference in comfort levels within your own home.

This thermostat is usually located in a hallway and will keep the hallway at the temperature you set while other areas of the home range from too hot to too cold. Zoning allows a thermostat in each room (or zone) for individual temperature control.
