7 Ways Home Zoning Can Help You Save MoneyBrian Byrnes
Utility bills add up and get expensive after a while and running your HVAC system contributes a large percentage of this bill. With this in mind, it is always useful to take the time and look for ways to lower your energy bills. You can help accomplish this by using your HVAC system in smarter ways and making your system more efficient.
One way to do this is by having Worcester HVAC install a home zoning system for you. A home zoning system allows you to break your home’s HVAC system up into different sections that can be controlled individually. Below you will find seven ways a home zoning system can save you some money.
Improve Your Temperature Control
Not everyone in your home or business building is comfortable at the same temperature. Some prefer warmer temperatures while others like it cool and breezy. A zoning system can help eliminate the struggle of determining where to set the thermostat. Each family member or employee can simply go to different rooms and set the thermostat at a temperature they prefer.
Send Heat or Cool Air Exactly Where You Want It
Another common issue comes to many Worcester homes during the winter and summer. If you have a multi-level home, your upper levels likely get warmer than the rest of your home as heat rises. You may try to compensate by turning your thermostat up or down. Unfortunately, this wastes energy. A home zoning system can send the conditioned air precisely where you want it instead so you don’t have to waste energy and your hard-earned money.
Block Off Rooms That You Don’t Use
Another way you may be wasting energy is by heating or cooling rooms that you never use. It doesn’t make sense to air condition or heat a room that you are not using. A home zoning system can help you close off the rooms or areas you aren’t using and help lower your utility bills.
Improve the Efficiency Of Your HVAC System
When your HVAC system isn’t conditioning your entire home, it doesn’t have to work as hard. It only has to work enough to warm or cool a small area or a couple of rooms. This saves energy and helps make your system more efficient.
The less your system has to work, the less wear and tear it experiences on its parts. This can also help extend the life expectancy of your system so you don’t have to replace it as soon.
Get a Smaller System
When your system finally does reach the end of its life, you may be able to consider getting a smaller system. If the load you need is not as large, you do not need a large HVAC system. Therefore, a home zoning system can lead to you getting a smaller system that costs less.
Add a Smart Thermostat
Adding a smart thermostat or programmable thermostat to your Montgomery County home can also help you save even more. This thermostat allows you to create a regular schedule for your HVAC system to follow. You can have your system turn back during the day while you are not using it and have it return to your preferred temperature right before you usually return home. A smart thermostat paired with a home zoning system can significantly help you lower your utility bills.
