AC and Heating Tip from AC Express
Zoning Your AC System
Did you know that there are Benefits of Zoning your AC System? More and more people are finding out about HVAC Zoning and are putting it on existing systems in both their homes. Zoning allows you to precisely control the temperature in different areas of the home or office. It adds comfort, convenience and on average, can save up to 30% on your energy bill. It can be added to any forced air system.
What is the reason we put heating and air conditioning in our homes and offices in the first place? So people stay comfortable! Going back almost 50 years ago when ZONEFIRST invented HVAC Zoning, the main focus was how can we make it even more comfortable. HVAC Zoning allows you to control your comfort in every room, or “zone”, of your home or office. If you’re too hot or too cold, just simply adjust the thermostat to your comfort level and everything else is automatic.
Having a thermostat in every zone of your home or office is extremely convenient. Most houses that are not zoned will have a central thermostat located in a downstairs hallway. That’s great for the hallway.. However, what about the living areas that are occupied more often? Some houses only have 1 thermostat all together. So in the middle of the night when you are cold, you might have to walk downstairs to change the temperature. You can throw convenience and comfort out the window if that’s the case.
With energy bills on the rise, more homeowners are looking for ways to go “green” or save on energy. Zoning is a great way to decrease your monthly energy bills. Studies even show, adding zoning to your existing HVAC system can save you up to 30% on your monthly utility bill! How? With zoning you can shut off rooms that are not being occupied. This way you’re not wasting heat or AC on rooms that no one is in.
