Have you woken up in your Boonsboro, MD, home, walked into the kitchen and found it was colder than the rest of the house? Zoned HVAC systems allow you to have separate temperature zones. As a result, you can keep the kitchen at a different temperature than the living room or not cool rooms that aren’t in use. Read on to learn about home automation zoning and its benefits.
What’s HVAC Zoning?
HVAC zoning offers a practical solution for heating and cooling your home by splitting your space into different sections. With zoning, you can keep your entire house the same temperature if you wish, or you can have a different temperature for each zone.
Have you ever had to go downstairs to adjust the temperature because your bedroom was too hot or too cold? With home automation zoning, you never have to do that again. You can access the user interface through your smartphone.
Higher Energy Efficiency
HVAC systems consume a lot of energy to keep you comfortable, even in the rooms you aren’t occupying. With a zoned HVAC system, you can turn off the cooling or heating for the unoccupied rooms and turn it back on when you’re using those rooms again.
Increased HVAC Lifespan
The average lifespan of a properly maintained heating and cooling system is 10 to 25 years. But this can vary due to yearly weather unpredictability. One year might have far warmer temperatures than the previous year, thereby making your HVAC system work harder.
Easing your HVAC system’s workload reduces wear and tear. As a result, it decreases your maintenance and repair needs while increasing its lifespan.
