Have you ever walked into a room and wondered why you are paying to heat a room that nobody is using? Or, maybe complained to your family that they are wasting money by leaving doors open and lights on? If you have, you’re not alone; it’s easy to find energy being wasted in most of our homes.
One of the ways that energy is wasted is when we are heating rooms that aren’t in use. At any time in the average 24 hour day, there are certain parts of the home that are not in use. Bedrooms that sit vacant during the day; living rooms and kitchens that aren’t used at night. It seems a shame to have to spend the money to heat and cool these rooms when we aren’t even in them.
Actually, we don’t need to spend that money. By zoning your HVAC system, you can greatly reduce the amount of energy wasted to keep your home comfortable. How? By only providing heating and cooling to the parts of the house you are using.
It used to be that the only way you could have a zoning system in your home was to have the home built with that in mind, or to manually adjust the temperature for each thermostat. However, modern zoning systems can be installed into already existing systems. These zoning systems, work by directing the heated or cooled air to only the parts of the house that your family is using.
Zoning systems can be installed in almost any forced-air HVAC system, for a fraction of the cost of adding a second HVAC unit. Allow one of our trained professionals to examine your home and show you how you can save money with a zoning system.
