Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial answer doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

You can get some gravity circulation (hot water is lighter than cold and will rise up into a zone unless something stops it). Normally this doesn't happen to any significant extent unless you have a zone valve or flow check that's leaking by.

It's in our bedroom and at 30 below zero I can't open a window at night without other problems. If I turn the temperature the room at the beginning of the zone are to cold. Thanks!

I need to know what you have for zone control. Do you have zone valves (if so what brand)? or do you have a circulator/pump for each zone.
