An HVAC zoning system gives you complete control over the temperatures in different sections of your home. You might have an upstairs and downstairs thermostat in your two-story Bessemer, AL, house, for instance. Proper zoning management allows you to take advantage of this convenient feature.
Have Your System Professionally Installed and Maintained
A zoning system only lowers your utility bills and maintains your ideal comfort settings if it’s professionally installed and correctly programmed. Hire a professional HVAC technician to install and maintain the system. An air conditioning maintenance program makes this easy. An expert will visit your house twice a year to conduct preventive maintenance and make sure the system is functioning properly.
Choose Thermostats That Align With Your Lifestyle
You might want a seven-day programmable thermostat if your temperature needs change daily. A 5-2 thermostat might suffice, however, if you prefer one schedule for weekdays and another for weekends. If you want to exert control over your thermostat while you’re away, consider a Wi-Fi model, which allows you to access your system via an app.
Examine the user interfaces for multiple thermostats. Decide which ones seem easiest to program. You’re more likely to get your money out of an intuitive, user-friendly device.
Spend Time in Each Room
To determine your comfort levels for each zone in your house, spend time in every room. For little-used rooms, such as guest bedrooms and formal dining rooms, you might get away with setting the thermostat a few degrees outside your comfort zone.
If you use a room during certain times of day, consider the amount of natural light during those times (because of the extra heat) and other environmental factors. In a home office, for instance, electronics like computers and printers give off warmth.
A zoned HVAC system allows you to fit your home’s temperature to your unique habits. If you’re ready to install a zoned system in your Bessemer, AL, home, give One Source Air a call at (205) 509-1929 to schedule a consultation.
