Zoning Systems Keep Every Part Of Your Home At The Right Temperature
Many homeowners struggle with trying to get their entire house at one consistent, ideal temperature. The problem gets worse when family members can’t agree on what that temperature should be; different people have different ideas of comfort. Zoning systems help resolve both of these problems.
Traditional air systems use a single thermostat to set the temperature for an entire house, while zoning systems utilize multiple thermostats. Each one controls a different part of the house, or zone, giving you enhanced control over how you cool and heat your home. This allows someone in one zone to set the zone-specific thermostat to their desired temperature without disturbing someone in another zone, leaving everyone satisfied.
Zoning systems not only give you greater comfort, they also allow you to conserve energy more easily, which can lead to savings on your utility bills. Zones that are not used frequently can be set to energy-efficient modes that prevent you from paying to control the temperature of unoccupied rooms. This creates savings and reduces wear and tear on your HVAC system, extending its lifespan.
An HVAC specialist will consult with you to figure out what the ideal zoning strategy should be for your house. They will talk with you to learn about which rooms are used less frequently than others, what construction features may come into play and other factors. After the zoning strategy has been decided upon, the installation process itself is quite easy. It requires a control panel, dampers, new thermostats and some minor ductwork modification.
