How HVAC Zoning Works

Your HVAC system is more than just a thermostat. It’s actually several machines doing several different jobs, all coordinated by your thermostat. Courtesy of starrmechanicalservices.com Your HVAC system probably has a furnace (or heat pump) responsible for creating hot air, an air conditioner for creating cold air, and an air handler (blower fan) for moving that temperature-controlled air around. Your thermostat coordinates these functions. Thermostats are fairly simple devices.

Nowadays, the temperature sensing is electronic, but the...
