An HVAC zoning system lets your family members decide on different temperatures for the zones of your Merritt Island, Florida, home. Some zoning systems use dampers in your ductwork to control airflow precisely. Others have more than one handler or separate units. Most systems have thermometers and controls that connect to a remote control or a programmable thermostat. You can also use a different thermostat for each zone. With HVAC zoning, you can enjoy increased savings, enhanced comfort and better indoor air quality.
Increased Energy Savings
Zoning can lower your utility bills by allowing you to stop heating or cooling any rooms you’re not using. Since you won’t have to condition as much space at once, you can use a smaller, less costly system. You can also reduce wear and tear on your current unit. As a result, you can help to extend its life. Adding zoning will pay for itself over time through energy savings and fewer repairs.
Enhanced Home Comfort
People can set temperatures for the zones in their bedrooms that will help them sleep and stay comfortable without making others too hot or cold. Zoning also makes getting rid of drafts or stuffy rooms easy. Many smart thermostats use cameras or motion sensors to learn your routine and make changes automatically. As a result, you’ll enjoy even more savings and better comfort.
Better Indoor Air Quality
With HVAC zoning, you can slow the spread of contaminants such as dust, biological growth, dirt, pet dander or pollen. Systems with dampers don’t have to move as much air through your ductwork, so you won’t have to get your ducts cleaned or change your air filter as often. Ductless systems use a separate air filter for each indoor air handler. They can capture pollutants before they travel to other parts of your home.
