The Many Benefits of a Zoned HVAC System
Are you looking for opportunities for energy savings and improving your home’s comfort? If so, consider installing a zoned HVAC system. Zoning divides a home/ building into multiple sections, each with a thermostat allowing you to control the temperature in each zone to suit your needs better, providing exceptional comfort and saving money in the long run. This blog post will discuss the many benefits of a zoned HVAC system.
Providing thermostat control in individual areas of your home helps keep your family comfortable in the areas they use most and allows you to keep areas unoccupied at a more moderate temperature. This results in not paying to heat/cool areas you do not currently occupy. This added convenience can also be especially beneficial for families with elderly members or anyone with specific comfort requirements.
Zoning’s ability to personalize temperature levels addresses individual needs without sacrificing everyone else’s comfort. Additionally, with zoned systems, your family can choose different temperatures for different rooms at other times of the day, allowing each member to customize their space according to their needs and preferences.
Greater energy efficiency
With setback thermostats, you can set areas of the home to warmer temperatures in the summer or cooler temperatures in the winter months. Keeping those unoccupied zones at a milder temperature will reduce energy use, saving you money on energy bills and reducing your carbon footprint.
Taking this a step further, you could install smart thermostats that, with the help of sensors, can track motion and adjust temperatures accordingly so that you can conserve energy when the room is unoccupied. No more wasting money heating/cooling empty spaces. By setting back the thermostat in those rooms, you can save money each month by only using energy where necessary.
Increased indoor air quality
Additionally, zoning systems provide enhanced air quality and filtration capabilities. Multi-zone systems equipped with thermostats with circulating options for the HVAC systems fan allow you to control the level of filtration needed for each zone. For those areas turned back to save energy, the air is circulated at the appropriate intervals to prevent stale air build-up.
You can have different temperature settings for individual areas of the house, and Arzel Zoning also works with any 24-volt thermostat.
You can utilize thermostats that you can operate remotely from your smartphone too. If you know you will be out for the day and did not adjust the thermostat accordingly, open the mobile app and make the necessary adjustments. If the weather changes faster than anticipated, you can immediately change anytime. You could even save yourself walking to the thermostat and connecting from your couch or bed.
HVAC zoning has many benefits and is an excellent addition to any HVAC system. If you have rooms that are too hot/ cold or just trying to save on utility bills having a conversation with your local HVAC professional about zoning is an excellent start to getting comfortable in your home.
