Temperature Zoning & How It Can Keep Your Home More Comfortable
It’s somewhat normal to experience occasional hot and cold spots in your home during the hottest and coolest months of the year. But if you are having a constant issue throughout the year, it could be time to make a few adjustments to your heating and cooling system. Whether you live in the Hogansville or Fayetteville areas, Addison Smith can help you keep your home more comfortable with temperature zoning.
The Temperature Zoning Technique Explained
Temperature zoning evens out the temperature swings in your home. This technique is often used by heating and air conditioning companies to more efficiently keep sections of your home at an even temperature. Traditional techniques try to keep your entire home at the same temperature, which is difficult if you have a larger home, so your HVAC system ends up working harder.
How Temperature Zoning Works
To get started, an Addison Smith technician will come to your home and map it into different heating and cooling zones. These zones are comprised of a few rooms in the same general area that you would like to be similar in temperature. It’s most efficient to separate zones by floor and by areas that are used the most and the least. Dampers also help to maximize the efficiency of temperature zoning. You can close or open dampers in different zones to change the airflow. Each zone will also have its own thermostat so you can adjust the temperature as needed.
What It’s Useful For
Temperature zoning is best used in homes with several stories, high ceilings and large rooms. By separating your home into zones, your heating and cooling system will be able to work more efficiently to adjust the temperature in certain areas of your home. This allows it to operate on less power saving you money on heating and cooling bills. Less temperature fluctuation in zones will also keep your family more comfortable.
