Zoning Your Way Toward Better Comfort and Cost Savings
Most Central Illinois homes and businesses have a heating and cooling system that delivers one temperature to every room based on the thermostat setting. If it’s 70 degrees Fahrenheit in the downstairs living room, it’s 70 degrees Fahrenheit in the upstairs bedrooms.
But maybe that temperature is a bit too warm for the upstairs. Or perhaps the downstairs feels drafty, and you want to hike up the thermostat. If that’s the case, you need a zone control system.
Zone control systems—or zoning—work with new and existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to effectively divide up locations in your Illinois home and provide each space with individual comfort control.
Zones are created and equipped with their own thermostat for HVAC system control. Dampers are installed within your duct system so heating and cooling can be increased or decreased in one area without affecting the rest of the home.
Best of all, you can trust our NATE-certified specialists at MB Heating and Cooling to install the system correctly to keep it operating at optimal efficiency for years to come.
HVAC Zoning in Springfield
Now that you know how HVAC zoning works, it’s easy to see how individual comfort control provides a major benefit. A zoning system installed with new HVAC equipment or retrofitted to work with your existing system provides many advantages:
Less energy waste
One temperature delivered across the home in a standard system is an energy-waster. Not all areas need additional heating or cooling at the time to stay comfortable. With zoning, the only energy used is to adjust temperatures in certain parts of your home.
With less energy waste comes higher savings on utility bills. Homeowners save an average of 15 to 30 percent on heating and cooling costs when effective zoning systems are installed and properly used.
Flexibility in heating and cooling
Not all sections of your home are created equally! Construction methods, area usage, and more affect heating and cooling in different areas. With zoning, you can account for these unique factors to deliver precision comfort for every area of your home.
Can You Add Zones to an Existing HVAC System?
Yes! Zoning systems can be retrofit to work with existing HVAC equipment—no need to buy a new furnace or air conditioner to take advantage of this beneficial HVAC technology!
