One room is cold, so you put on a sweater. Another is hot, so off comes the sweater. You’re hot, but your spouse is cold. You need a floor fan in the library in the evening, but not in the morning. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, you’re not alone. A zoned system might be the answer for your Hobe Sound home.
Here are three ways that home zoning gives you more control over your comfort, your home, and your pocketbook.
Home Zoning Controls Solar Effects
In a typical Hobe Sound home, the amount of sun or shade each room receives varies throughout the day. That upstairs home office that’s a comfortable 75 degrees in the morning might become a sweltering 85 degrees with afternoon sunshine. A zoned system lets you create a schedule based on each zone’s temperature patterns throughout the day, eliminating the need to constantly monitor the thermostat to counteract Hobe Sound’s solar effects.
Control the Rooms You Don’t Use
With central HVAC systems, one thermostat sets the temperature for the entire house. That means the bedroom you use for storage is heated and cooled the same as your living room or kitchen that you frequently use. Zoned systems have separate thermostats that regulate the temperature in each area. This means you don’t have to heat or cool unused rooms in your home.
Greater Control of Your Energy Expenses
Because an HVAC zoning system allows you to heat and cool rooms on an as-needed basis, you eliminate the amount of energy you waste with a one-temperature-fits-all HVAC system. You can save nearly 30 percent on fuel bills by switching to a zoning system.
