Do you argue with others in your house about thermostat settings? Maybe you run hot while your significant other likes cooler temperatures. What should you do? Homeowners in Castle Hayne, North Carolina, can use home zoning to establish comfortable temperatures in individual sections of the home.
What Is Home Zoning?
Zoning for your HVAC system operates differently than forced-air systems where there’s only one thermostat to control the heating and cooling for the entire home. Forced-air systems cannot control the temperature in each room of the house unless you manually close off the vents. Closing off too many vents can reduce airflow and shorten the HVAC system’s life.
Why Should I Get Home Zoning?
Maybe you find that the upstairs gets too hot and you want to cool it, but you don’t want to cool the downstairs. Or maybe you have rooms in your house that you don’t spend a lot of time in, so it makes sense to not heat or cool them. Home zoning allows you to set comfortable temperatures either for individual rooms or sections of the house, which helps you save on utility costs and energy usage.
How Does It Work?
Home zoning involves placing motorized dampers inside ducts or air outlets that open and close based on each specific zone thermostat. A zone control panel acts as the brain of the entire operation, as it controls every zone thermostat that operates each zone.
