In the middle of summers in Wilmington, North Carolina, do run your air conditioning at a lower temperature to keep one room cool while another becomes overly cold? A home zoning system can reduce your energy usage, save you money and keep you comfortable.
Cool and Heat Different Zones
A home zoning system is a heating and cooling system that uses a control panel and dampers to control which zones or rooms receive airflow. Each zone has its own thermostat. As a result, you can set different temperatures in different zones based on your heating and cooling needs. All the thermostats connect to the control panel.
Add a Programmable Thermostat for More Savings
Because home zoning systems have different thermostats for each zone, you control how much energy you use. As a result, you can save money on your heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.
In the summer, set the thermostats to higher temperatures in unoccupied zone. In the winter, set the thermostats to a lower temperature.
You can even save up to 30 percent more on your heating and cooling bills by using programmable thermostats with your home zoning system. Programmable thermostats enable you to adjust the temperature based on times of day. For example, you can schedule all your thermostats for the most energy-efficient settings when you’re at work during the day.
Prevent Family Fights Over Comfort
The battle over adjusting the thermostat to each individual’s comfort level will end with a home zoning system. Each person living in your home has control over how warm or cool their room feels at any given moment.
