Benefits of HVAC Zoning
Here in Kennesaw, we often find that our customers can benefit from an HVAC zoning system. With this modern approach to heating and cooling, you’ll be able to effectively manage your home’s climate. If you’re on the market for a new HVAC system, we urge you to consider the benefits of zoning.
How Does It Work?
In properties with HVAC zoning, homes are divided into different sections, called zones. Special dampers are installed within the home’s ductwork, which allows the homeowner to control the airflow to each individual zone. In addition, each zone is controlled by its own thermostat. This allows the homeowner to choose which rooms are heated, which rooms are cooled, and when.
In addition, many homeowners utilize ductless units to create and manage zones. With ductless units, most homeowners will purchase a special thermostat that allows them to control the units via a smartphone app or remote control.
HVAC Zoning Benefits
- Improved Comfort. The biggest draw of zoning systems is that they will improve your family’s comfort. You can easily keep certain rooms warmer, and others cooler. That way, if some members of your family are always hot, you can make sure they are comfortable in their room, without making the rest of the family miserable.
- Improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). HVAC zoning can also reduce the prevalence of indoor allergens and contaminants. Traditional heating and cooling systems make it easy for particulates to freely move around your home.
However, if you divide your home into zones, you can keep airborne dust, germs and allergens within a single zone. This can give you time to get rid of the contaminants before they reach the rest of the house.
- Reduced Energy Usage. Finally, zoning can help you save energy and, in turn, save money. You’ll no longer have to do constant battle against uneven temperatures (especially in multi-story homes). And, if there are areas of the house you rarely use, you can limit the HVAC going to that zone.
By having more control over the heating and cooling going to each area of your house, you can save time, frustration, and money.
