WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ZONE YOUR HOME?

HVAC systems are responsible for creating an ideal climate at home. During the hot months, these create and circulate cool air around the house. During the chilly seasons, they provide and maintain heat to make the home cozy for everybody.

Heating and cooling systems come in different designs and capabilities. Most modern homes in the country make use of centralized air conditioning or ducted systems so conditioned air is dispersed in all rooms of the house. This is both an advantage and disadvantage. It’s an advantage because you can expect the same level of comfort anywhere you go in your home. It’s a disadvantage because rooms that aren’t occupied get air conditioning too, which is a waste of energy.

To address the disadvantages of centralized HVAC systems, a zoning system is the smartest solution. With a zoning system, you can control the temperature for each area or zone of your home. This special ability can yield multiple benefits to you as a homeowner.

Firstly, even if you’re still using one central HVAC system, the temperature can be controlled for every part of your home.

This means increased comfort that’s based on the heating or cooling the room needs. When there’s a need for a room to be colder because there are more people in it and different appliances that radiate heat are turned on, the temperature can easily be adjusted with the help of the zoning system.

Another benefit is it can preserve your HVAC unit.

Thanks to the zoning system, there’s no need to manually close off outlets in each room. Manually shutting off outlets frequently can reduce airflow and shorten the functional lifespan of your HVAC unit.

A further advantage is it can decrease your household’s energy consumption and reduce your monthly energy expenses.

Since unoccupied rooms do not get heated or cooled by the HVAC system, there’s lower energy usage. The lower consumption will manifest on your monthly electric bills. It will also allow you to be more environmentally responsible.

A zoning system is a professionally installed control system that consists of a damper and thermostat for each zone of the house.  It is connected to a central control panel that sequences every thermostat call with the zone dampers in the ducts and the HVAC unit for focused air conditioning. It basically functions like a light switch in every room of the house; you turn it on only when needed, conserving energy without sacrificing comfort in your abode.
