Zoning lets homeowners in Palm Desert, California, separately control the temperature of each area or zone in their homes. Each HVAC zone has its own thermostat, and they’re often connected to a system of dampers in the ductwork that direct conditioned air where it’s needed. You can also use zoning with a ductless HVAC system that has two or more indoor air handlers. With zoning, you can enjoy energy savings, comfort, and convenience.

Energy Savings

When you have a zoning system, you won’t have to heat or cool unoccupied zones areas. Having an HVAC system with zoning installed by the professionals at All Knight Heating & Air Conditioning is an investment that will pay for itself over time through lower utility bills. Zoning also prevents excess wear, extending your system’s life and helping you avoid breakdowns. It can even increase your home’s value.

Comfort

If your HVAC system doesn’t have zoning, everyone in your home will have to be happy with one thermostat setting. Some people could feel chilly, while others may be too warm. Zoning lets members of your family keep the bedroom area comfortable without changing the temperature in the rest of your home. It can also allow you to use a smaller, quieter heating and air conditioning system.

Convenience

Most zoning systems are controlled by programmable thermostats, and many of these have remote controls, as well. They can turn down your HVAC system automatically and save energy while you’re at work or asleep, and you can make changes from anywhere with your computer or phone. With many devices, you can require a password to alter settings. That way, guests and kids won’t be able to use your programmable thermostat without permission. Other zoning systems are controlled by the use of dampers within the duct system.
