Want to increase the energy efficiency in your home?
Energy efficiency is on everyone’s minds these days, but how can you make your heating and air conditioning system more efficient? With zoning, of course. Here’s everything you need to know:
Different rooms in your home can become warmer or cooler than other areas for many reasons. They can be receiving more sun exposure or simply be in a basement, be on an upper level or have vaulted ceilings. All of these factors can directly affect the temperature, making it harder for your HVAC system to keep up, and reducing your energy efficiency. That’s where zoning comes in.
What is Zoning?
Zoning is a way to have specific control over separate areas, or zones, in your home to more effectively regulate temperature. It’s a way to heat or cool different rooms based on temperature fluctuations, differences, or preferences. There are different ways to incorporate zoning into your home, depending on the type of HVAC system you currently have, or the system that you’re installing or upgrading to.
How Does Zoning Work?
Zoning systems use multiple thermostats wired to a central panel that controls various vents and ducts in a forced air system. The ducts open and close based on temperature settings for a particular area, heating or cooling a space separate from the temperature in other areas of the home.
Is Zoning for You?
Do you have rooms or areas in your home that you don’t use regularly that you are paying to heat or cool anyway because you have to? Do you have areas of your home that get much hotter or cooler than other areas, yet they still get the same airflow, warm or cool, from your HVAC system because you can’t control it? Do you wish you had more control to customize the way your home is heated and cooled in a room-by-room or zone-by-zone basis? Do you want to save money and make your home more energy efficient? If you answered yes to any of these questions, zoning is the right choice for your HVAC system.
