All About HVAC Zoning
Posted on May 10th, 2018 by Dean's Plumbing
If you and your family members can never decide on a comfortable temperature to stick to in your home, then HVAC zoning is for you!
What is HVAC Zoning?
An HVAC zoning system divides your home into several zones, giving you the ability to control the temperature in each room or “zone.”
Pros of HVAC Zoning?
Imagine all the energy you would save if all the lights in your home were connected by one major switch. This is the case with heating and cooling your house and HVAC zoning. Changing the temperature in your house every time a person feels chilly or is too warm can really take a toll on your HVAC unit, and on your energy bills at the end of the month. A zoning system offers the flexibility of controlling the temperature in specific rooms, so the entire house doesn’t have to change its temperature as well.
Which Homes are Best for HVAC Zoning?
Installing a zoning system requires placing separate thermostats and electronic dampers for each room (zone) and wiring them to a panel. Some cases require redesigning your home’s ductwork for better efficiency.
Almost all homes can benefit from an HVAC zoning system, that is if you’re willing to put a little work in during the installation stage — the high energy savings, in the end, will be worth it!
If you have a multi-story home, family members with specific temperature preferences, or certain architectural homes, an HVAC zoning system can be the right solution!
