Does your Grapevine, Texas, home have hot and cold spots? Are some rooms too warm while others are too cool? HVAC zoning can help to keep your home’s temperature consistent. Read on to learn what exactly HVAC zoning is and three benefits your home can receive from it.
What Is HVAC Zoning?
HVAC zoning is part of your home automation system. Your HVAC system delivers treated air through the ductwork in your house. When the central thermostat goes on, the air conditioner or heater sends air into your home based on the information from that single thermostat. If you have levels in your home, hot air rises and the upper rooms are usually warmer than lower levels.
When you have your home zoned, dampers are installed in the ductwork and individual thermostats in different areas of the home affect the dampers. When it gets too hot or cold, the smart thermostat sends a signal to the damper to open or close and allows the warm or cool air only to that room or area. Here are some of the benefits you’ll receive with HVAC zoning.
Your home will feel consistently comfortable with zoning. Also, if someone likes their room warmer or cooler than the rest of the house, they can adjust the temperature in their room to a setting that makes them comfortable.
Reduced Energy Bills
If you have unused rooms in your home, you can put the temperature to a higher or lower setting so that you don’t have to waste treated air being delivered to a room with no occupants. Your HVAC system won’t have to use as much electricity and fuel, so you’ll save money on energy bills.
Increased Performance of Your System
Because the system isn’t working as hard to keep your entire house comfortable, there is less wear and tear on it. Your system, with regular maintenance, will perform efficiently and run in top condition for years.
