As a Tampa, Florida, resident, you’re vigilant about keeping your home cool and comfortable all year round. That doesn’t mean you want to waste energy or cool underutilized parts of your home, though. Find out how HVAC zoning works and why it could boost your household’s energy-efficiency efforts.
How HVAC Zoning Works
One of the first things you should know about HVAC zoning is that it won’t necessarily require you to purchase a new heating or cooling system. Instead, many existing HVAC systems are compatible with zoning. This means the Advanced Cooling Systems team may be able to retrofit your current system.
To divide your home into HVAC zones, we’ll add a series of dampers in your home’s ductwork, and then we’ll connect them to a central circuit board. From there, you’ll be able to use individual thermostats to control the temperature and air quality settings for the various zones in your home.
Why HVAC Zoning Improves Efficiency
If your home has more than one level, a higher concentration of windows in one or two rooms, or better insulation in certain parts of your home, you know that keeping the temperature consistent can be tricky. Adjusting the temperature constantly can lead to decreased efficiency and can even cause added wear and tear to your HVAC system.
Since HVAC zoning divides your home into different temperature-controlled areas, you can turn up the cooling power in warmer rooms without wasting energy on cooling your entire home. With better climate control, you can keep the temperature steady in each zone, which also helps efficiency.
How to Give Your Household an Additional Efficiency Boost
You can improve efficiency even more by installing a smart thermostat that’s designed to handle multiple zones. Talk with our team about optimizing your smart thermostat and learn how to keep every room in your home comfortable without wasting energy.
