How can your home benefit from an HVAC zoning system?
At AirXperts, our clients’ home comfort is our priority. We’re always looking for ways to help you be as comfortable as can be while saving money too. One way to get the most out of your home comfort and energy savings is by using an HVAC zoning system.
What is an HVAC Zoning System?
HVAC zoning is a system of heating and cooling that separates your home into distinct sections or “zones.” You can choose what rooms go into which zones and combine rooms that have similar use patterns. With HVAC zone control, you can manage the temperature in each zone to meet your needs.
How Does HVAV Zoning Work?
HVAC zone control works in two main ways. HVAC zoning systems usually include manually or electrically controlled dampers in your ductwork that regulate and direct airflow through your zones. Each zone in your home will also have its own thermostat used to monitor temperatures and control the electronic dampers in your ductwork.
Can Your Home Benefit from an HVAC Zoning System?
Any home can benefit from an HVAC zoning system. But some home situations reap more significant benefits from using HVAC zone control. These situations include homes with:
- High ceilings
- Above-garage rooms or apartments
- New additions
- Multiple large windows
- Basement or attic living space
- Multiple stories (or split level, tri-level, quad-level)
Benefits of an HVAC Zoning System
With HVAC zoning, you don’t have to worry about wasting energy on rooms that you don’t use. For example, if you have a guest room that you rarely use, you can keep the heating and cooling off in that zone until you need it. This process can lead to significant energy savings of up to 20% and lower monthly electricity bills.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Good indoor air quality in your home is essential to the health and safety of your family. Indoor air quality is especially important during the colder months when you spend more time indoors. Using an HVAC zoning system helps improve indoor air quality. By keeping zones separate for heating and cooling, zoning also keeps allergens, pollen, pollutants, and more from spreading from zone to zone.
Even Temperature Distribution
An HVAC zoning system is an effective way to eliminate hot and cold spots in your home, especially if you have multiple floors. With different thermostats to control different zones, you don’t have to worry about any uncomfortable or uneven temperatures.
As one zone reaches the desired temperature, airflow to that area is slowed, and more air is directed to the other zone. This process maintains even temperature distributions with maximum convenience.
Comfort for All
Are there ever moments in your home when one family member is wearing shorts, and another is wrapped in a blanket? Many of us enjoy and find comfort in different temperatures. With HVAC zoning can meet everyone’s needs without any fighs over the thermostat.
So if there is someone in your home who is always much warmer or colder than everyone else, HVAC zone control is the perfect solution.
Extended HVAC Lifespan
Always running your HVAC unit, even in areas that aren’t used, puts an added strain on your system. With HVAC zone control, your unit will only work as hard as it needs to, adding time to its lifespan.
Simple Solutions for Additions
If you’ve added a new addition to your home, and aren’t sure if you want to extend your current HVAC system, zoning can help. Using a ductless zoned system is a simple and cost-effective way to manage temperatures in the new area. With this method, you don’t have to worry about altering your current HVAC system.
