HVAC Zoning: What You Should Know About This System
HVAC systems have come a long way in the past few years. If your Forest Acres, South Carolina, home is struggling with efficiency, high heating and cooling costs, or an uncomfortable indoor atmosphere, you may be looking for a solution. HVAC zoning could be the right fit for your home, delivering improved comfort and lower costs.
What is HVAC Zoning?
A zoned HVAC system uses dampers within the ducts to redirect air to different areas of the home. One of our HVAC technicians can install the dampers in your ductwork, giving you more control over how much heated and cooled air moves through specific zones. HVAC zoning is especially beneficial in homes with hot and cold spots that never seem to reach the set temperature or when people in the home want drastically different temperatures. This type of system can end the thermostat wars while maintaining a comfortable atmosphere for everyone.
Benefits of Zoned HVAC
One of the key benefits of a zoned HVAC system is improved control, but it’s certainly not the only reason to consider this addition. Zoning can also improve efficiency and decrease your energy bills because you’re no longer spending money to heat up or cool down the entire house when just one room is in use. You can alter the temperature in a specific zone, rather than wasting energy to produce enough air for the whole space. HVAC zoning also delivers more targeted heating and cooling for a comfortable temperature in any area.
When one zone reaches the set temperature, the HVAC system will communicate with the dampers in the ducts to close, allowing more airflow to occur in other zones. You may also want to use a zoned system if you have a home gym that you like to keep cooler than the rest of the house or the upper level of your house is always hotter than the lower level.
