Do you want to increase the comfort levels in your Gilmer, Texas, home and save money on energy bills? If so, consider HVAC zoning. Let’s look at what HVAC zoning is and how it can benefit you and your family.
What’s HVAC Zoning?
The ductwork in an HVAC system carries treated air into your home. With HVAC zoning, dampers in the ducting open and close for each room, area or zone when told to by a smart thermostat placed in that room. Each smart thermostat sends a signal to the main electronic control panel that regulates all the dampers in the ducting. The dampers only respond when the thermostat attached to it tells it to open and close.
What are the Benefits of HVAC Zoning?
- Customized temperature. With a zoned system, each room has its own thermostat. The occupant can adjust the temperature according to the comfort level they want. If someone likes their room warmer or cooler than the rest of the house, they set the temperature to where they want.
- Eliminates hot and cold spots. If you live in a house where there are different levels or add-on rooms, not all rooms will get heated consistently. With a zoned system, you can set a consistent temperature for all areas of the house, from a warm upper-level room to a cold downstairs area. As a result, you’ll eliminate hot and cold spots.
- Increases energy efficiency. With a traditional HVAC system, all rooms receive warm or cool air, whether they need it or not. If there’s a room not used, simply set the temperature lower in the winter and higher in the summer. You won’t be wasting energy heating or cooling rooms that don’t need it. Because your HVAC system is working overtime, it’ll last longer, perform better and you’ll save money on energy bills.
