St. Louis HVAC Zoning & HVAC Zone Systems
Zoning systems control the distribution of heated and cooled air throughout your house. Typically, a homeowner is unable to focus on just one room or area inside, but with the installation of a customized zoning system you won’t be wasting energy controlling the temperature of a room that is never used.
It is not uncommon to find fluctuations in temperature throughout your house. A variety of things, such as vaulted ceilings or picture windows, can affect the temperature in just one small area of the home. Consider this scenario: Your family spends the majority of their time in the living room, which has a high ceiling. During the winter they feel cold as the heat rises up, so you adjust the thermostat to make them more comfortable. While straightening up, you enter a guest bedroom that is never used, and has a large westward facing window and are immediately overwhelmed from the heat. Think about the amount of energy being wasted on heating that room.
Having a zoning system installed prevents exactly that type of scenario. Multiple thermostats are placed around the home and connected to one central control panel. The control panel can open and close the dampers in your duct work allowing you to determine how heated and cooled air is distributed throughout the house.
How Does This Save Money?
On the surface, this seems like a costly home improvement project, but a system has been developed that allows for the installation of a zoning system that works with the duct work already in place inside your house. The Department of Energy reports that installing a zoning system can save a homeowner almost 30% on their utilities.
