If your home heats or cools unevenly, consider installing an HVAC zoning system in your Henrico, VA, home. Read on to learn more about zoned HVAC systems and how they help you save energy and money.
How Does Zoned HVAC Work?
HVAC zoning uses a series of dampers in your ductwork to direct air into different zones. A professional can help you with choosing and installing zones based on where your family spends time at different points of the day. You can also install a multi-zone ductless setup to achieve this.
Once you install zones, you can set rules for each zone based on how you want to use it. For example, you can heat bedrooms at night during the winter while the rest of the house stays chilly. You can change your preferences manually, on a schedule or with location-based settings on a smart thermostat system.
HVAC Zoning Saves Energy and Money
Having multiple zones in your house allows you to set the temperature according to your needs. Unused zones will use less energy throughout the day. This way, you will save money on electric bills. As a result, you’ll also reduce your environmental impact.
HVAC Zoning Extends an HVAC’s Lifespan
Depending on the system setup, your unit may not need to work as hard to heat only a portion of your home. It also may cycle on and off less, which can help to reduce wear and tear. When paired with regular duct cleaning and annual maintenance visits, you may significantly extend the lifespan of your HVAC units.
