You may have heard about the option to “zone” your HVAC system. Zoning just means creating several different zones where heating and air conditioning can be controlled separately, typically with individual thermostat settings and separated ductwork or a similar arrangement. There are several benefits to setting up zoning depending on your situation – let’s take a look at a few of them.
This is a big advantage for multi-family housing, offices, and homes where the occupants have a very different idea of what makes a temperature comfortable. Zoning allows different temperatures to be set at will so that a building can be held in several various climate zones based on preference. Do some workers or family members complain about it being too hot or too cold? Zoning provides a simple, effective solution. It is typically a requirement for multi-family housing as well.
Big House Control
If you have a large house, zoning from Elite Climate Control may help simplify your HVAC control practices. By targeting specific areas in the house where you are active, you can cool down or heat up rooms more quickly. When a Victorville HVAC system can focus on only one or two zones, it can be more effective, and you don’t have to wait as long for the results.
Zoned HVAC systems do not guarantee move savings. However, there is often a happy bonus to installing one of these systems, especially in one building. When your system is only targeting specific zones in a house, it doesn’t have to manage the temperatures in other sections. This selective focus and greater efficiency can lead to more utility sales. Of course, this varies based on how the system is used. If people in every zone are constantly adjusting the temperature, then zoned systems may actually cost you more in energy bills. Careful scheduling and control are key.
Has something gone wrong with your HVAC system? If you have zones, it is often easier for Elite Climate Control to narrow down the problem quickly. If it’s just one zone that has issues, then it’s probably a thermostat or ductwork issue. If all zones suffer, then the primary HVAC equipment is probably at fault. Problems are easy to locate.
