How to add a zone to a boiler

Zoning gives you control over your home’s indoor temperature.

You can control each room’s temperature and ensure every room gets enough heat to keep everyone comfortable.

It also increases your home’s heating efficiency. With zoning, you can choose to heat occupied rooms, like the living room, while keeping the rest of the house without air conditioning during the day and heat bedrooms at night. You could go a step further and zone your living room while leaving the kitchen out because it tends to be naturally warm from extensive use of appliances. But to enjoy all these benefits, you have to know how to zone your boiler. First, you need to buy heat and AC products, like zone valves, from a certified HVAC supplier. These HVAC equipment allow you to zone your boiler with the help of an HVAC professional. You should also consult a qualified HVAC professional if your boiler can accommodate a zone valve before purchasing it. A zone valve controls water flowing through the HVAC system by blocking it completely. When you close the valve, water won’t flow to the HVAC system’s radiators. When it is opened, hot water flows and circulates throughout your home, heating the entire building. Connect the zone valve to a smart thermostat which detects when the room has achieved the required temperature. This then closes the valve, automatically shutting down the flow of hot water through the system and lowering your room’s temperature. When the indoor temperature reduces, the zoning valves open to allow the flow of hot water through the system once again. You can use a two-port zone valve that closes or opens water flow to a designated heating area or a three-port mixing valve similar to the two ports and an additional water flow temperature adjustment feature. Consult an HVAC contractor before buying a zone valve to zone your HVAC system.
