An HVAC zoning system controls the temperatures of each zone or area in your Jacksonville Beach, Florida, home independently. Some systems use dampers inside the ductwork to direct conditioned air, and others have more than one air handler. With an HVAC zoning system, you and your family members will enjoy additional comfort, energy savings, and better indoor air quality.
Zoning makes getting rid of warm or chilly areas easy. You can keep your kitchen cool when cooking without making the rest of your home uncomfortable, and you can make sure that all your floors are the same temperature when needed. People can also choose the settings they prefer for their bedrooms without altering the rest of the indoor environment. Many zoning systems use smart or programmable thermostats, allowing you to make changes from a central location. Many models also let you get convenient updates and adjust your indoor temperature from anywhere with your computer or smartphone.
With zoning, your HVAC system won’t have to heat or cool empty rooms. This reduces your utility bills and helps your equipment keep working longer by lowering wear and tear. Heating and air conditioning systems with zoning are initially more costly than standard models, but you’ll get your investment back in the long term through energy savings and a higher value for your home.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Zoning systems with dampers in their ductwork don’t have to circulate as much air to be effective, so your ducts will stay clean longer. Contaminants such as dirt, dust, pet dander, pollen, and biological growth will spread more slowly than with traditional systems. A zoning system with more than one air handler has a separate air filter for each unit so that it can prevent the spread of pollutants as well. These devices include many ductless and packaged units.
