With HVAC zoning, you can select different temperatures for each zone, area, or room in your Chapel Hill, North Carolina, home. Some of these systems use dampers in their ductwork to send conditioned air where you need it most. Others, including many ductless or packaged systems, use more than one air handler. Zoning will provide you and your family with energy savings, additional comfort, and better indoor air quality in your home.
Zoning allows you to avoid conditioning empty zones and use less power. It can lower your utility bills and extend your HVAC system’s life by reducing breakdowns and wear. An HVAC system with zoning is more expensive to install than many other heaters and air conditioners, but the operating costs are much lower. It can pay for itself over time, and it can raise the value of your home by making it more appealing to buyers.
Zoning lets you make areas that tend to be too chilly or warm comfortable again without changing the temperature in the rest of your house. You can keep lower floors warm in winter, cool your kitchen when you’re using your oven in summer, and more. Your family members can sleep better by choosing the settings they prefer for their bedrooms.
A Nexia home automation system with a programmable thermostat can control multiple zones from a central location. You can also make adjustments wirelessly and control other devices, such as lighting and locks, through your computer or smartphone.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Zoning keeps contaminants like pet dander, dust, or biological growth from spreading easily around your home. This improves your indoor air quality and helps prevent asthma or allergy symptoms, sore throats, eye irritation, headaches, fatigue, and other health issues.
