What Do I Need To Know About A Zoned Air System?
The most basic zoned air system installation will consist of a programmable thermostat for each zone, damper installation within existing ductwork, and a central control panel. Many homes choose to utilize a simple two or three-zone system, typically upstairs and downstairs. You can customize it down to individual rooms but the price will increase with the number of zones you are adding. Your zoned air system will work with both heat and cooling so you will not need to worry about a different system for the warmer months of the year.
What Are The Benefits Of A Zoned Air System For Heating?
Beyond the increased comfort, one of the most appreciated benefits of using a zoned air system is the boost to efficiency. Having parts of your home that are cooler than others can cause your HVAC system to run more often than it should in an attempt to heat those areas, and vice versa during warmer times of year. By keeping the areas you prefer a little cooler to stay that way, you relieve your HVAC system of some excess work and energy. Overall this means lower energy bills for you. As smart homes become more popular, apps offering the ability to control from anywhere or including remote controls with your installation has added to the convenience. Finally, due to the simplicity of a zoned air system, repairs and replacements are rarely needed. You can expect it to outlive your HVAC system in most cases.
There is no need to suffer in a cold or stuffy room this winter. Get the most out of your heating system by ensuring the heat flows where its needed. For a reasonable upfront cost, you can lower your heating bills while increasing the overall efficiency and comfort within your home.
