Comfort and energy efficiency are the two primary consideration when heating or cooling your home. A zoning HVAC system can help improve your forced air HVAC system's performance to achieve both benefits.
Zoning HVAC system process includes the installation of ventilation duct dampers and a main control board with various thermostat setting to regulate the temperature of each zone.
How Zoning System Works?
Fundamentally, zoning system split up the house into different temperature zones that can calibrated individually.
It’s a simple concept but requires a certified HVAC professional to evaluate the existing system structure you have in your home as well as the comfort issues and needs in order to engineer a zoning system that will deliver maximum comfort and energy efficiency.
Zoning System enables you to provide more heat or cool to areas of the home that further needs it. For instance, the room that is facing the sunlight at daytime requires more cooling, the zoning system lets you cool this room without forcing the AC to work harder just to keep the sections of the house cool at the same temperature.
Usually, people tend to close the air vents off in rooms that are not used or a spot that is getting overly warm or cold in contrast to other section of the home. When you close the vent ducts, it will result to back flow and air pressure issues within the HVAC system. This strain will have negative effects to the life span of your heat pump or AC.
Conversely, zoning system lets you set the temperature in each section of your house separately. The dampers are installed in the appropriate spots of the ventilation system as to where it will not cause a back flow issue. Furthermore, the main control panel will control the dampers whenever you need them so you don’t have to close the ventilation ducts.
Zoning HVAC system will no longer let you sacrifice comfort just to achieve a lower energy cost. With zoning system, you can control the temperature of each room and make it comfortable while maximizing your energy savings.
