29 Dec Can a Zoning System Save You Money and Energy?
Your HVAC system is tasked with making sure you’re comfortable during the extreme summer heat and freezing winter temperatures. You want a system that can achieve this while being as effective and efficient as possible. An HVAC zoning system fits the bill due to the way it cools and heats different parts of your home. Let’s find out how it can benefit your home.
How the System Works
A zoning system has multiple thermostats that are connected to a control panel, which operates dampers installed in your home’s ductwork. With each thermostat you can create a temperature zone for a specific part of your home. The dampers open or close depending on the thermostat settings for that specific zone. As a result, you are able to customize the temperature of each area to meet your needs.
Because of how it works, a zoning system offers great advantages, which include:
- Greater control. The system gives you increased control over your home’s comfort. You have more flexibility to control the indoor air comfort in different areas of your home.
- Increased comfort. Different members of your household could feel more comfortable at different set temperatures. This zone system allows one member to increase or reduce the temperature in a room without affecting other family member’s comfort.
- Increased efficiency. Heating or cooling all rooms equally is like lighting all bulbs in your home when you need just one light in one room. In both cases, you’re wasting energy. With a zoned system, you just run temperature-controlled air to rarely-used rooms when necessary. This helps you save money on your energy bills.
- Longer HVAC system life. Your HVAC system experiences less wear and tear because it doesn’t heat or cool your entire home all the time. This leads to longer life expectancy.
You can reap more benefits and save more money on your utility bills by pairing a zoning system with a programmable thermostat. For more information on zoning systems, contact us at Airtron Heating & Air Conditioning. We serve the Dallas area.
