What do you know about HVAC zoning? If you aren't using it for your home heating and cooling, you might not know a lot, but it can have a big impact on your comfort level as well as your wallet. Here are a few benefits you might see if you take advantage of HVAC zoning:
Zoning Means Comfort
Zoning works by controlling the temperature in different areas or "zones" in your home. It can mean setting different thermostats separately or, more conveniently, installing a zoning system that controls dampers in your duct system that open and close to change the temperature in the different zones.
By controlling the zones separately, you can keep higher traffic areas warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, while using less energy in areas that don't get as much use, such as guest bedrooms. Zoning can also keep temperatures consistent in homes with many south facing windows or homes where part of the house is always in the shade.
Zoning Means Increased Energy Efficiency
By heating or cooling only the areas that need it, you will use less energy to keep your home comfortable. Instead of overheating or overcooling areas just to keep other zones the right temperature, you can customize the temperature control in your home and save energy in the process. Adding zoning to your current system can save you up to 30% on your energy bills.
