With HVAC zoning, your family members can choose different temperatures for separate areas or zones of your Grand Prairie, Texas, home. You can have a professional install dampers in your ductwork to send conditioned air where you need it most. Or you can use a system with multiple indoor air handlers. HVAC zoning can conserve energy, increase your comfort and improve your indoor air quality.
Greater Energy Savings
Zoning lets you stop heating or cooling vacant rooms. As a result, it helps you reduce your utility bills. It also helps your HVAC system keep working well longer by reducing wear and inconvenient, uncomfortable breakdowns. It can even let you install a smaller, less costly heater and air conditioner when it’s time to replace it.
With many zoning systems, you can set a password or code to prevent unauthorized changes as well. Some units can connect to cameras or motion sensors to learn your family’s routine over time with no programming needed. As a result, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint.
Zoning makes compensating for warm areas, drafts and temperature differences between floors easy. It lets everyone choose the temperatures they prefer for their bedrooms or the rooms they spend the most time in without impacting the comfort of others. With many systems, you can make changes from anywhere with your computer or smartphone. You can even choose from several thermostat background colors.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
You can use zoning to prevent bad smells or contaminants such as dust, pollen, biological growth or pet dander from spreading through your home. A zoning system with more than one indoor air handler has a separate air filter for each unit. Models with dampers don’t need to move as much air through your house every hour. For the best indoor air quality, have your HVAC system checked by a professional at least once per year, and change your air filters every few months.
