HVAC Zoning

The Problem:
Most two-story homes have an 8-12 degree difference in temperature between upstairs and downstairs. Most ranch-style homes have an 8-12 degree difference in temperature between one end of the home and the other. A home with this problem is NOT a comfortable place to live.

The Solution:
Zone control! Zoning is a relatively easy way to improve overall space comfort and lower operating costs. With zoning, a single heating and cooling system can be enhanced to provide more precise comfort control throughout an entire home.

Itís simply not possible for one thermostat to provide ideal comfort for every person, in every room. Whatís comfortable for the bedroom may be too warm for the family room. Zoning is the easy, affordable solution for optimum home comfort... in every room of the house!

Networked Zoning combines a zone control panel, thermostats, conventional dampers and a discharge air temperature sensor to make up a communicating system. While the basic system controls two or three zones, it can be expanded to nine zones.

In the cooling season, set your thermostat at 78 degrees or higher when you're at home. When you are away from home, set your air conditioner at 85 to 87 degrees or completely off if your not home for more than two days.

Heating accounts for the biggest chunk of winter energy bills. Make sure your furnace receives a professional "tune-up" each year. Clean or replace air filters once a month to help your unit run more efficiently.

Make sure you filter is clean and changed on a regular basis. Have preventive maintenance service twice a year to ensure your unit is running at peak efficiency. Make sure the service person washes out your condenser coil.

Install a programmable thermostat. You can save as much as 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills by simply turning your thermostat back 10% to 15% for 8 hours. You can do this automatically without sacrificing comfort by installing an automatic set back thermostat.
