Too Hot, Too Cold, Just Right—Zoning Control Systems
It’s a typical situation in your home. You are always hot, and your wife is always cold. The kids are running around so much that they wouldn’t know the difference either way. At night, you have the heat blasted for your spouse, but you crack the window open for yourself. You have extra electric heaters placed in your basement because it is always freezing down there. This causes a higher heating bill and an even higher electric bill!
Temperature control in your home can weigh heavily on your pockets. Everyone likes a different temperature in the room that they are in, and it can sometimes be hard to compromise. Thanks to the advancement of technology, you can control the temperature in every room of your house. All you need is a zoning control system.
Is a Zoning Control System Right for Your Home?
Understanding a zoning control system is actually pretty easy. There are multiple thermostats throughout your house that is each set to a specific temperature of your choice. If you are never in the guest bedroom, you can set the temperature lower than you would in your living room where your family usually hangs out. If you like it cooler and your wife likes it warmer, you can compromise with different temperature settings in different rooms.
McIntire HVAC specializes in the installation of zoning control systems for both residential and commercial buildings. There are two main factors to consider when deciding if a zoning control system is right for your home or business:
- Upfront Costs – Many homeowners are hesitant to transition to a zoning control system due to the higher cost when installing it. When your heat works just fine, it can be a tough decision to switch over to a completely different system. A resident or business owner must look at the long-term savings to make the transition. The option to adjust the heat according to each room is a wonderful way to add more money to your savings!
- How Many Zones Do I Need? – Deciding on how many zones you need in your home may be easier than you think. You may decide that you need only two zones—one upstairs and one downstairs. This is a popular choice because as heat rises, the upstairs usually stay significantly warmer than the downstairs. In this case, it would be a great choice to have McIntire HVAC install a two-zone control system. This way you can keep the upstairs set at a lower temperature since the downstairs will already be giving it enough heat.
The three main components of a zoning control system are thermostats, a control panel, and dampers. It is important to know that you can use your heating system that already exists when McIntire HVAC installs your new zoning system.
Zoning control systems in your home can be the best option for individual comfort. Each family member can be comfortable while saving a significant amount of money. This is one less challenge that you will have to face in your home!
