Zoning is a way of getting the most out of your HVAC system. You have control over the temperatures of each zone in your home and can direct heating and cooling where it’s needed most. Here are three things you need to know about zoning your Victorville, California, home.
Every zoning plan for an HVAC system is personalized since each home and homeowner’s needs are different. Depending on your needs, most homes can have between two and four zones. Two-story homes often have more zones since the system treats each level differently.
Zoning lets you control the temperature in each area separately. For you, this could mean something as simple as turning on the AC in the guest room only when it’s needed. This will save you a lot of money on electricity. Another example is to adjust zones based on sunlight. As the sun moves from east to west, different parts of your house change temperature at different rates. You can zone your home to adjust the temperature accordingly.
There are different options for zoning your home. The simplest system has two zones, but three and four zones are relatively common too. Depending on the number of zones that you need, you may have to do some work to your system. Adding zones changes the pressure inside your ducts, and they need a way of addressing the added pressure. So, a four-zone system may need additional ductwork.
Ideal for All Homes
Zoning can be a good move for any size home. Zoning is just a way of making your HVAC system more efficient. It simply shuts off the AC airflow to areas that don’t need it or adjusts the temperature in that area by controlling the airflow. That means that your HVAC system only does the work that is needed and can still make you comfortable when doing less to cool or heat your house.
If you have a high electric bill or you constantly have problems controlling the temperature in your house, zoning might be a good option for you.
