Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning offers a system that many people probably have not heard of before. It is called a zoning system, and if you have problems with uneven temperatures in your home, this system may solve them for good. The best part about installing a zoning system in your home is that it can often be incorporated into your existing furnace and duct work systems. That means no costly system replacement, and it will even boost the efficiency of your existing unit!
How does it Work?
When you have a zoning system installed by Four Seasons, we will first determine how many zones your home can be broken into. Larger, multi-storied homes with vaulted ceilings and large open spaces will need more zones than a smaller home. Once we map out the plan, dampers are installed in various places in the duct work.
These dampers are controlled by individual thermostats that are located in each of the zones of the home. They will either open or close to allow more or less air into the rooms based on the settings that you choose. There are a few very important benefits that can be had by installing a zoning system. These include:
- Energy Conservation: Many people have rooms in their homes that are not frequently occupied. With a zoning system, you could safely cut those rooms off from the heating system so that extra energy isn’t being expended to heat rooms that no one is in. This results in energy savings and monetary savings because the furnace will run less often.
- Improved Comfort: In homes where there are multiple people living under the one roof, it can often be difficult to agree on a temperature to set the one thermostat at. With a zoning system, each person can control their own zone of the home, and keep it at the temperature that suits them best.
- Stop Overheating: If you have uneven temperatures from room to room in your home, you may be cranking up the heat to accommodate the rooms that are lacking warmth. This results in several rooms becoming overheated. With a zoning system, you will be able to increase the temperature in the rooms that need it the most without overheating other areas of the home. This is just another way that a zoning system will save energy!
Zoning systems don’t work for every home, but if you have some of the problems that a zoning system can solve, you home is probably a good candidate for one of these systems. If you would like to learn more about getting a zoning system installed in your home, call Four Seasons today!
