It can be exhausting trying to please everyone with one thermostat temperature setting in a home. With zoning systems, you and your loved ones can relax with individualized comfort throughout your home and the cooling season. They’ll also save you money on your energy bills.
Find your zones
Zoning systems deliver customized cooling in each zone (room or section) of your household. The significance of custom zoning can be measured in complete home comfort and energy savings. It’s impossible for one thermostat to take temperature readings of a distant area inside your home. Only the temperature in the immediate area around the thermostat activates the cooling system.
An HVAC professional installs a network of thermostats (one for each zone). This gives you precise temperature readings throughout your home no matter its design or dynamics. For example, sun-facing rooms that tend to be warmer could comprise one zone, and the shaded rooms another zone. The top level of living space, where warm air collects, could be a different zone from the finished basement, which stays cool throughout the day. Perhaps you have a home office that you would like cooled without cooling the entire house.
Custom comfort and savings
In zoning systems, individual dampers open and close to control the amount of airflow each zone receives based on the thermostat setting for that zone. This results in significant energy savings if you are often cooling your entire home when conditioning a smaller area would suffice.
For even more convenience and energy savings, you may use programmable thermostats to change temperatures based on the schedule and lifestyle of you and your family. Or go even more high-tech with a “smart” thermostat that allows you to remotely check system status, make temperature changes when your schedule changes, and much more.
