3 Benefits of HVAC Zoning in a Home
Zoning lets you choose different temperatures for each zone or room in your Las Vegas, Nevada, home. Some heating and air conditioning systems with zoning use dampers inside ducts to direct conditioned air. Others have more than one indoor air handler. With HVAC zoning, you can save energy, increase your comfort and improve your house’s indoor air quality.
Zoning allows you to you stop conditioning vacant rooms. That way, you can lower your power bills, extend your HVAC system’s life by reducing wear and increase the value of your home. With some zoning systems, you’ll need to program your family’s usual weekend, weekday and vacation routines. Others can connect with motion sensors or cameras to learn your routine over time and let you avoid extensive programming. When it’s time to replace your HVAC system, you should be able to stay comfortable with a smaller, less expensive model.
With zoning, everyone can choose the temperatures they prefer for their bedrooms without making others uncomfortable. It also makes eliminating drafts or temperature variations in different parts of your home easy. With many HVAC zoning systems, you can use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to make changes and get updates anywhere. Many thermostats with zoning have a variety of background colors as well.
Better Indoor Air Quality
A zoning system that has more than one indoor air handler uses a separate air filter for each device, keeping contaminants such as dust, pollen, dirt and pet dander from spreading easily through your home. A system with dampers doesn’t need to move as much air through your system’s ducts. As a result, you won’t have to get your ductwork cleaned or change your air filter as often to keep your indoor air quality high.
