Are you striving for energy efficiency, but not ready to give up the comfort of air conditioning? Don’t feel bad; you’re not alone! We rely on our cooling systems to keep us comfortable and safe in the heat of summer. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be more energy efficient and still stay cool. Zoning is a great way to do just that. Here’s how it can help keep you cooler this spring.
Zoning: The Basics
Zoning is a way to set up a heating and cooling system so you can control the heating and cooling of independent areas, or zones, in your home. It allows you to target areas and distribute energy to specific places, so you use less.
Benefits of Zoned Cooling
Are there areas of your home that are always hotter in the summer than others? Or areas that are plenty cool, but that you don’t use frequently? This is where zoning comes into play. Zoning gives you a better balance between areas that are cool and areas that aren’t. It allows you to focus the energy and cool air where you need it most, in the rooms you enjoy every day.
What Does this Mean for a Cooler Spring?
Cooling all areas of your home means you’re spending more money than you need to by using more energy than you need to. But it can also mean the areas you want the coolest aren’t getting to the temperature you really want. Instead of cooling your whole house, zoning can make the areas you spend the most time in consistently cool and comfortable, not just in the spring, but all summer long.
