HVAC Zoning and its Unknown Benefits
HVAC Zoning and Its Benefits
Many of our clients here in Theodore could benefit from having HVAC zoning set up in their house. Whether it’s to manage the temperature preferences of family members or to keep even temps in a multi-story home. This modern approach to heating and cooling can do wonders for your overall comfort. If you’re shopping around for a new system, definitely consider the benefits of zoning.
How Does it Affect My Indoor Air Quality?
The entire premise of HVAC zoning is to divide a property into special areas, or zones. These areas are controlled by separate thermostats and are heated/cooled individually. Special dampers are installed within the home’s ductwork, which controls the heated/cooled air to each zone. With a zoning system, you can choose which rooms to heat, which rooms to cool, and when.
You can take advantage of zoning, even if your home doesn’t have ductwork. With multiple ductless units, homeowners can create zones in their home. And, they can even use special thermostats to control the units via a smartphone app or remote control.
Benefits of HVAC Zoning
- You can improve your comfort. The absolute biggest benefit of zoning systems is that they can dramatically improve your family’s comfort. Do you have members of your family that are always hot? With a zoning system, you can make sure they are comfortable in their room, without making the rest of the family miserable. You can easily keep certain rooms warmer and others cooler, and make sure everyone is comfortable at all times.
- You can improve your air quality. HVAC zoning can also help you keep indoor allergens and contaminants at a minimum. With traditional HVAC systems, particulates can freely move around your home. Zones can actually keep airborne dust, germs and allergens within a single zone. This gives you time to get rid of the contaminants before they reach the rest of the house.
- You can lower your utility bills. Zoning can also reduce your energy consumption and save you money. You won’t have to do constant battle against uneven temperatures, especially in multi-story homes. And, if there are areas of the house you rarely use, you can reduce the heated/cooled air to that zone.
When you have more control over your heating and cooling system, you can keep comfortable and save money.
