Why Zoning for Your HVAC System is a Good Idea

Zoning for Your HVAC | Viccarone Heating & Air Conditioning

Are you uncertain whether or not you need zoning for your HVAC system? Here are some possible signs in which your system could use zoning to provide more comfortable living:

  • You are not capable of controlling the temperature on every floor or selected rooms. 
  • You are cooling or heating rooms that often go unoccupied.
  • You are looking to find ways to save money on your monthly energy bills.
  • You desire total comfort in climate control within your home.

If one of more of these apply to your living situation at the moment, you should consider installing zoning to your HVAC system, courtesy of Viccarone Heating & Cooling. Here are a few reasons why.

Zoning enables homeowners to control the temperature in every room (otherwise known as a zone) of their home. This is done by installing a thermostat in strategic locations with automatic dampers. This allows homeowners to choose different temperatures throughout selected zones of their home.

Usually, the one thermostat you have in your home is in the central hallway in your first floor, and you will not be able to control the temperature upstairs without zoning. Zoning makes it so that you can control temperatures upstairs as well as downstairs. Those selected areas can be well air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. Thanks to zoning, your home will have proven climate control.

With zoning, you can also save a fraction of money on your utility bills, by controlling which rooms get temperature control and which ones don’t. If there are only a select number of rooms that you frequently go in, you can heat or cool these rooms while turning temperature control off in the remaining rooms.

How does Zoning Work?

Specific thermostats will demand the zone board controller to open and close specific dampers. The control panel is wired to Honeywell electronic dampers that are installed inside your air ducts. When the control panel calls for air to a specific room or zone, these dampers will actuate and allow or disallow air flow to enter required zones.

Having zoning in the home is a win-win situation; both for your well being and finances. For a consultation, contact Viccarone Heating & Cooling.

With these hot summer days at an all-time high, it is nice just to sit inside and enjoy the comforts of an air-conditioned home. But, you always find yourself sitting there just thinking about how much money your spending on the energy bill! Sound familiar? Viccarone HVAC is here to give you some useful tips on how to keep your energy costs low while still keeping cool at home. Keep Doors and Windows Closed With kids in an out of the house, it is easy for someone to leave the door open. Even if the door is open just a crack, the cold air will rush out, and the hot air will replace it. This causes your thermostat to use more energy, which costs you money! In order to keep those energy costs low, make sure you keep the doors shut! Proper Insulation in Your Home In the same vein, if your home is not properly insulated, youre going to be spending more money on air conditioning. Keep Wet Feet Outside If you have a pool, hot tub, or if the kids are outside playing in the sprinkler,

There are generally two types of air conditioners that we use today: R22 and R410-A. Refrigerant is what makes air cold so that you can enjoy cool air inside your home, but a lot goes on to make that air cold, and you can experience problems with your HVAC unit if just one thing were to go wrong. If you are having problems with your unit, like the refrigerant is failing, it is essential to know what refrigerant you are using so that you can determine what to do to fix or replace your air conditioner. R22 R22 refrigerant is also known as Freon, the older of the two refrigerants. R22 uses mineral oil for self-lubrication, allowing it to remain cold over long periods of time. It does not absorb much heat, meaning it has a good chance of compressor burnout from overheating. This refrigerant is also a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) which is detrimental to the O-zone. R410-A R410-A refrigerant is also known as Puron. Unlike R22, this is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) which does
