Just as your family has individual members with different needs, different areas around your house have varying temperatures. You don’t have a single switch that controls all the lights in your entire house. Each room has its own light as well as its own switch. Most homes have areas that suffer because they only have one thermostat located in one area and expect it to control the temperature in all parts of the home.
To provide your family with absolute comfort, you may need to consider zoning to control the temperature throughout your entire home. With a zoning system, each area of your home is given a special heating and cooling control.
A reputable heating company in Greenfield WI, such as New Berlin Heating and Air Conditioning, can help you make your home a lot more comfortable, giving your family peace and relaxation. Our team of highly-trained technicians can determine the best zoning system to give you the best results.
An HVAC zoning system (also referred to as “zoned HVAC”) is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home. This allows for the creation of customized temperature zones throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency.
When is Zoning Needed?
While most homes will benefit from HVAC zoning, there are certain situations where zoning is required to improve the overall comfort of your home. That’s because most homes have a room that’s always too hot or too cold, and family members usually have different temperature preferences. Zoning systems allow you to accommodate these different needs, while also helping you reduce your energy costs.
There is a common challenge most homeowners with multiple stories experience. It is called air stratification. The warm air accelerates and the cooler air drops in your home. With only one central thermostat, your higher floors will be warmer; while the lower ones cooler.
With high ceilings, there will be uneven air circulation resulting in inconsistent temperatures. This can put a strain on your heating and cooling system and create higher energy consumption, resulting in higher utility bills.
When you decide to make additions to your home, such as an extra bedroom, a sunroom or an extension to your living room, you will be faced with a new set of heating and cooling challenges. New rooms tend to be better insulated than the older ones, which leads to more air being trapped that becomes dormant.
Exposure to the Sun
Depending on your home’s design, your heating and cooling can be greatly affected by its exposure to the sun. When the sun moves, the parts of the house that are exposed to the sun get heated up while the other parts remain cooler. Also, the amount, positioning and size of your windows can affect the temperature throughout your home. These situations can lead to inconsistent room temperatures.
The Benefits of Zoning
- Lower energy costs
- A more comfortable indoor environment
- Quieter operation of heating and cooling equipment
- Minimal HVAC system maintenance
- Added comfort
Zoning systems can help you correct temperature imbalances throughout your home. As it gets colder in your
home, now is the perfect time to consider adding zoning to your heating and cooling system. You will have greater control over air circulation in all parts of your home. Do yourself a favor by eliminating those annoying hot and cold spots in your home, lowering your energy bills, and giving your family added comfort and peace.
