With zoning, you can choose different temperatures for different areas or zones in your Peachtree City, Georgia, home. Some houses with this feature have dampers in their ductwork to direct warm or cool air where you need it most, and others have more than one indoor air handler. Zoning can help you save energy, increase your comfort, and improve indoor air quality for your home or business.
Zoning lets you avoid heating or cooling empty rooms, which can lower your utility bills. It also extends your HVAC unit’s life and helps you save money by reducing wear and tear. This will make a sudden, inconvenient breakdown less likely.
You can change the temperature of your surroundings while you’re hanging out in your bedroom or cooking in a hot kitchen without impacting other zones or areas in your house. This way, everyone can stay comfortable and you are able to compensate for any warm or drafty areas. Many programmable thermostats also allow you to require a code or password to prevent unauthorized changes by guests or kids.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Zoning can keep contaminants such as dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander and biological growth from spreading easily throughout your home. Systems with more than one indoor air handler use a separate air filter for each unit so that they can trap more pollutants. The ones with dampers don’t have to circulate as much air through your house as standard models. With either type of HVAC system, you should change the air filters at least once per month for optimal indoor air quality. Choose filters that can capture bacteria and viruses to prevent illnesses like the flu.
