Saving Energy with Home Zoning
Home zoning provides the ultimate in energy savings and comfort contouring for those living in Davidson, NC, and the surrounding area. With an HVAC zoning system, you can save energy, enhance comfort, and improve your home’s indoor air quality.
How HVAC Zoning Systems Work
Many homes have a single HVAC system responsible for heating and cooling the entire building. Most comfort problems result from widely varying loads in different rooms, especially in two-story houses. A zoning system is comprised of a network of dampers installed in the ductwork and hard-wired to a zone control module.
When the thermostat calls for cooling or heating in a specific zone, the zone panel opens the appropriate damper. If another zone is activated during the cycle, its damper also opens. The process of closing and opening dampers continues until all the zones maintain the desired temperature.
The Benefits of Home Zoning
Zoning your home will help save energy and lower your utility bills by eliminating unnecessary heating and cooling of empty rooms. In two-story homes, the second floor usually needs less heating in the winter and more cooling in the summer. In many instances, you’ll be able to use smaller, less expensive HVAC equipment, and you won’t need multiple systems to keep your home comfortable.
Most homes have rooms with dramatically different load requirements caused by size, occupancy, glass exposure, and orientation. Instead of overcooling or overheating several rooms just to make one room comfortable, a zoning system maintains an even temperature throughout your home as it reduces the workload on your equipment.
