HVAC systems that are zoned allow a home to be separated into two or more zones. Zoned systems allow you to have more control in the way your home is heated or cooled because it allows for individual control of the temperatures in each zone. This system allows you to have a different temperature in the kitchen than the bedrooms for example. A zoned HVAC system is a money saver because it eliminates the need for dual air system that requires separate air conditioners and furnaces. The best thing about a zoned system is that energy can be saved because you’re not having to heat or cool areas of the home that don’t need to be. The efficiency of your HVAC unit will not change but it makes the most efficient use of the system, saving you money. Zoned systems can save you an average of up to 30% on your heating and cooling costs. And lower energy bills aren’t the only benefit of having a zoned HVAC system.
Benefits of Having a Zoned HVAC System
· Increased indoor comfort. When a home is equipped with one thermostat, temperatures in different rooms cannot be controlled properly. Temperatures will vary from room to room and from floor to floor in a multi-level home. Areas of the home can also be affected by other factors like shade, high ceilings, wind chill, cooking and appliances can all affect the temperature within a home. Different parts of the home can be controlled with a zoned system and solve all these issues and leads to overall comfort. Zoned systems also allow you to eliminate those hot and cold spots that can develop in a home.
· Modern convenience of temperature settings. Modern technology has allowed zoned systems to provide the convenience of modern living. Parts of the system can be set up in one room without the need to walk to another room to adjust the temperature. There are wall-mounted thermostats or a remote control to adjust the temperature, the fan speed and the humidity levels.
