How Zoning Can Improve Your HVAC Energy Efficiency
When it comes to heating and cooling your home, comfort and energy efficiency are two of your highest priorities. If you have a forced air HVAC system, a zoning system can be installed to provide you with both of these benefits.
The zoning system involves installing ventilation duct dampers and a central control panel with multiple thermostats to control each zone of your house. In the Cuyahoga Falls, OH area, Keith Heating & Cooling is the professional to call for zoning system installation.
Here's how zoning systems can improve your HVAC system's energy efficiency and home comfort at the same time.
Zoning Systems Heat & Cool Each Room Separately
Zoning HVAC systems are quite complex, but they basically separate your house into different temperature zones which can be controlled separately.
While it's a simple product and concept, a professional will need to assess your current system setup, the comfort problems you're having, and your comfort needs so they can design the zoning system to produce the most comfort and energy efficiency.
Zoning Allows For Separate Temperate Control Throughout The House
If some rooms or areas of your home aren't getting comfortably warm or cool like the rest of the house, a zoning system can solve the problem. It will allow you to send more warm or cool air only to the rooms or areas that need it.
For example, let's say that the front rooms of your house stay warmer during the summer because they face westward and get the most sunlight during the hottest part of the day. With a zoning system, you can cool those rooms without forcing the air conditioner to keep the other rooms at the same cool temperature.
Less Strain On Your HVAC System = Energy Savings
Most people close the air vents off to a room they're not using or to an area that's getting too cold or warm as compared to the rest of the house. Closing the vent ducts causes backflow and air pressure problems inside your HVAC system, and this causes strain that shortens the life of your air conditioner or heat pump.
When you can set the temperature in each room or area of your house separately, your HVAC system won't be straining to heat or cool the more difficult areas of the house. The dampers are located in the right areas of the ventilation system to where they do not cause a backflow problem.
The central control system will operate the dampers as you need them so that you don't have to close the ventilation ducts.
More Comfort For Less Energy
Comfort is a big priority for any family in Cuyahoga Falls, yet so many people sacrifice comfort to keep their home's heating and cooling energy costs down. With a zoning system installation, you can turn the air down or up as you wish to make each room or zone comfortable while enjoying the energy savings the new system gives you.
