Heating and cooling your home can be challenging, especially if not everyone in your household agrees on the best temperature at which to set the thermostat. While uneven comfort in certain areas of the home isn’t uncommon, it’s often an indicator of an issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. For either one of these problems, one potential solution would be to invest in an HVAC zoning system, also known as a “zoned HVAC”.
Here local air conditioning repair contractor Allison Air Conditioning discusses what a zoned HVAC system is and whether it’s the best choice for the comfort needs of your family.
How Zoning HVAC Systems Work
A zoned HVAC system gives you more control over the comfort needs of a specific area of your house without affecting the rest. First, you must identify which rooms you want to regulate the temperature—these are the zones. Each one has a thermostat, which is connected to a central control panel in your home.
Dampers are then installed either in the ducts or at the air vents. These are activated by the zoning control panel that regulates various temperatures in your home. Once a specific zone reaches the desired temperature, the thermostat will alert the dampers to stop the flow of air.
Is It the Best Choice for Your Home?
Almost every household can benefit from a zoned HVAC system. It’s ideal for multi-story homes that have finished attics and basements, vaulted ceilings, large glass windows and extra rooms such as a home office or gym that need additional heating or cooling during certain times of the year.
With a zoned HVAC system, the unit won’t have to work as hard to keep a specific temperature throughout your home. Thanks to thermostats in each zone, you can lower the temperature in areas that aren’t used as much, putting less stress on the entire unit and extending its lifespan. It also helps cut down on energy use, saving you money on monthly energy bills.
