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:
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.
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.
