Zone Your Home’s Heating and Cooling System For Increased Comfort and Efficency
Zone Your Home’s Heating and Cooling For Increased Comfort and Efficiency
If you have rooms in you home that are always hotter or colder than others, system zoning can be an effective way to create a more comfortable home and increase overall cooling and heating efficiency.
What is System Zoning?
System zoning is pretty straightforward. Multiple thermostats are connected to a central control panel, which operates dampers within the ductwork of your home’s forced-air system heating and cooling system. Each thermostat constantly measures the temperature of its specific zone, then opens or closes the damper within the ventilation system according to the thermostat’s temperature setting.
Not only is system zoning helpful for houses with widely varying room temperatures, it’s also an excellent solution for heating or cooling individual bedrooms. If you have a bedroom that is usually empty, simply shut the door and close the damper.
System zoning can also help you save money on your energy bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, system zoning can save homeowners up to 30 percent on a typical heating and cooling bill.
If you’re considering installing a retrofitted zone-control system in your home, call ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric. Our Home Comfort Specialists can evaluate your HVAC system and your comfort needs to recommend the perfect zoning solution for your home.
