Learn about one simple technique that will drastically improve your home’s energy efficiency.
“Energy efficiency” has gotten to be a buzzword of sorts, misused and downplayed for the sake of gaining attention for many unrelated products. It’s still important in its own right, and one of the easiest ways to improve your home’s efficiency is by making changes to your HVAC system. Zoning is a prime example of how heating and cooling can drastically reduce the amount of energy required in order to keep your home comfortable.
Look at all the ways zoning upgrades your home’s energy use:
Divide and conquer
Using one HVAC system for your whole house is similar to using one light switch for all of your lights. It makes sense that different areas of your home will have different heating or cooling needs. By zoning your home’s areas, you can achieve the most comfortable for everyone on your property and at a lower cost than relying on one thermostat and delivery unit.
Homeowners without a zoned system often shut registers or doors in order to control their homes’ comfort levels. This creates pressure issues which can lead to damage and discomfort. It’s also almost guaranteed to waste energy and result in higher utility costs.
Increased home value
Zoned HVAC solutions fall into two popular home improvement categories: green and luxury upgrades. Not only does a customized system provide the most comfort possible, but it also wastes less energy. Both of these upgrade types have a positive impact on home value, so they pay off in a practical way when you sell your home.
Zoned heating and cooling systems are a good investment for many reasons, but especially for improved energy efficiency.
