Zoning is a method of controlling the temperature in individual rooms around the house. You could compare zoning to light switches; nobody uses one light switch to control all the lights in the house because having a switch in every room makes more sense and is much more convenient. The same can be said for heating and cooling; it’s easier to control the heat and air for a certain zone from the room you’re in at the moment.
Dave’s Heat & Air shows you how a proper zone control system can maximize HVAC efficiency.
A zone control system uses a damper and thermostat for each zone of the house. It’s wired into a central control panel that sequences each zone’s call to the HVAC unit. A bypass damper is sometimes required to relieve excess air when only smaller zones are calling.
Zoning allows each zone to be heated or cooled based on its own needs rather than those of the entire house. This prevents the overheating or cooling of rooms that aren’t used as often. Zoning provides perfect comfort, where and when you want it, and also reduces the need for heating and air repair due to an overworked HVAC system.
A zoning system helps to increase the energy efficiency of your HVAC System. This is accomplished by setting back thermostats in lightly-used zones to prevent overheating and cooling. At the same time, thermostats can be adjusted in other zones to achieve maximum comfort. Homeowners with zoning systems have reported as much as 20-30% in energy savings, and this amount can be increased even more by using automatic setback thermostats that adjust several times per day.
A zoning system allows you to set and adjust the temperature in the room you’re in without having to go elsewhere to do so. You can then rest assured that you’re only conditioning that room and not the whole house, which reduces the need for AC repair by reducing the workload on your HVAC system.
