Confused About Zoning? The Basics of Zoning in Your Home HVAC

Home HVAC service isn’t always similar to service for commercial systems. The units of a large office building are engineered differently and can even be large enough to occupy the whole roof. Chances are, your heating and cooling equipment takes up a modest amount of space outdoors or in your basement. Unfortunately, regardless of scale, HVAC equipment is notoriously inefficient, whether it’s built for work or home.

Advances in Comfort

One method for reducing waste is zoning, which entails splitting a property up into areas that are then heated or cooled separately. While zones typically share the same HVAC equipment, a series of ducts and fans control where conditioned air travels. This makes it possible to keep the heat low in the kitchen, for instance, but higher in the bathroom.

How HVAC Zones Cut Expenses

Without zoned heating and cooling, you need to adjust the temperature of your entire home to combat cold and hot spots. If half of the home is already too cold and you want to crank up the AC to make up for a stuffy bedroom, everyone else in your property will suffer.

Zoned home HVAC systems allow you to make small adjustments in the rooms where they’re needed. Your heater or air conditioner won’t have to run for extended periods. Neither you nor your guests will have to settle for discomfort either. Zoning generally just costs less, while raising your overall total-home comfort. Invest in technology capable of making you happier and financially secure.
