With zoning, your heater and air conditioner can keep different areas or zones in your Altamonte, Springs, Florida, house at different temperatures. If you have an HVAC system with a different thermostat for each area or zone, you can use zoning to avoid heating or cooling unoccupied rooms. It can increase energy savings, comfort, and indoor air quality for your home or business.
An HVAC system with zoning will use less energy than a conventional system because you can avoid heating or cooling all of your rooms at once. Zoning can even let you install a smaller, less costly heater or air conditioner. All the rooms in most homes are rarely occupied at once, so there’s no reason to spend extra money on a system designed to heat or cool every square foot simultaneously.
Most zoning systems have several thermostats that are controlled with a central programmable thermostat. You can conserve additional power by setting your system to turn itself down when you’re away or asleep. With many programmable thermostats, you can require a code or password for changes. That way, kids and guests won’t be able to make unauthorized adjustments.
Zoning lets you change the temperature in your bedroom and other areas without affecting the rest of your home. That way, everyone can stay comfortable, even if some people prefer warmer or cooler conditions.
Indoor Air Quality
Separating your home into zones can keep contaminants such as dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander, and biological growth from spreading quickly through your home. For optimal indoor air quality, you should also change your HVAC system’s air filters once per month.
