Learn how HVAC zoning provides a higher level of energy efficiency for your home.
Zoning is way to achieve different temperature controls in various areas of your home with the result being a higher level of energy efficiency. An example of this would be keeping your living room cool, while keeping a few bedrooms upstairs warm, and at the same time keeping another area of your home at an even and moderate temperature.
It is possible to achieve zoning in two ways:
1. Specialized zoning thermostats/equipment is installed with the HVAC system your home uses.
2. Two or more HVAC systems are installed into your home to perform for various areas of your home.
Usually zoning is suggested for more spacious, multi-story buildings or buildings with particular climate needs, like businesses or homes with a larger family living in them. A few situations that this could apply to are:
- A two or three-story home with a finished basement to the second story.
- Homes with rooms containing several spacious windows.
- Added rooms, such as rooms over garages or rooms in attics, as these areas usually have special climate needs.
- A building utilized as a business; an office may need to be a separate temperature than a floor room or kitchen area.
If you have noticeable temperature differences in your home that you just can’t seem to get a handle on, or if you want to take a few steps to help your HVAC system service your home and increase energy efficiency, you may want to consider making zoning the next addition to your home.
