Is your family having a hard time staying comfortable due to hot and cold spots throughout your home? Unfortunately, the only place in your home where the temperature matches the thermostat reading is at the thermostat. You don’t use one light switch to light your entire home, so why use one thermostat? By upgrading to a zoning system in your Cincinnati home, you can take control of these comfort issues and lower utility costs.
What Is a Zoning System?
Rather than heating or cooling your entire house equally using a single thermostat, a zone control system uses multiple thermostats and segments your home into particular areas, efficiently heating and cooling only the areas you use to save a substantial amount of energy.
Benefits of Adding a Zoning System to Your Home
- Comfort and control – Occupants in your home can adjust temperature to their comfort levels without affecting other areas in your home.
- Lower heating and cooling costs – By focusing only on areas of your home that are in use, a well-designed system can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 30 percent.
- Extend the life of your HVAC system – Peak performance and temperature control is delivered without the need for operating at full capacity. This reduces noise levels as well.
- Address temperature control problems – Multi-level homes and those with a finished basement, attic or over-garage rooms have different temperature needs. Zoning is also a benefit for rooms with extensive window areas; areas of your home with open areas such as vaulted ceilings, lofts, atriums and solariums; and homes with multiple wings.
Designing Your Zoning System
It’s important to have your zone control system professionally designed and installed to ensure peak performance and energy savings. Typical homes benefit from three zones, however your HVAC professional will have the experience necessary to know when additional zones are useful.
