HVAC zoning is quickly becoming one of the most popular solutions for homeowners looking for more control over their climate system. Wondering if HVAC zoning is right for your Riverside, California, home? We’ve made this quick guide to introduce you to this technology and help you figure out if it would work for you.
Zoning your home allows for ultimate climate control and personalization. If you have family members who prefer different temperatures, zoned systems will allow them to select the temperatures that work best for them without disturbing the rest of the household. It’s also helpful if you have parts of your home that you don’t use regularly. Zoning allows you to leave those rooms untouched while still providing climate control to the rest of your home.
Zones allow for increased energy efficiency in your home. You can pick and choose the parts of your house to cool and heat. You can also assign each room a desired temperature. This flexibility means that your system doesn’t have to work to cool or heat your entire home but instead works selectively. Rooms that don’t require climate control are effectively sealed off, reducing the load on your HVAC system. This can lead to reduced utility bills and lower household costs.
Installing a zoning system usually doesn’t require a complete overhaul of your current central HVAC system, making it an attractive choice for many homeowners. The zoning system consists of multiple thermostats, sensors, and flexible dampers installed strategically throughout your home. The thermostats and sensors are designated to specific zones that are controlled by the dampers inside the ductwork. While installation isn’t an excessively complicated process, it’s still important to have it done by a professional.
