Take Control Over Your Comfort With a Zoning System
Many homeowners in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties have standard furnace and air conditioners that heat and cool their entire homes. But did you know you can control temperatures on a room-by-room basis? That’s what a zoning system from Tom’s Heating Service can do for you. Discover more about them below and call 262-548-1300 for more info.
What Is a Zoning System?
Standard heating and cooling systems are single-stage units—they are either on or off until your entire home reaches the temperature set on your thermostat. Zoning, also referred to as zone control or HVAC zoning, is the opposite. It divides your home into different “zones,” allowing you to set multiple temperatures for multiple areas.
This innovative HVAC setup is ideal for those who like to personalize comfort in separate areas of their home, such as the basement or bedroom, or may have unused rooms that don’t always need heating or cooling. For multi-story homes where the upper levels get too hot in summer, for instance, a zoning system from Tom’s Heating can really make a huge difference—both for comfort control and energy efficiency.
Zoning Thermostat Control
Each zone set up in your home has its own thermostat, allowing you to change temperatures in one area without affecting others. Wi-Fi thermostat options give you the added convenience of controlling everything from an app or smart device—and can even let you monitor your energy usage.
It Starts With Dampers
Part of zoning installation includes dampers placed in your ducts or air registers. Each wired damper acts like a valve, opening or shutting depending on the instructions it receives from your thermostat. They help direct airflow only to the desired zone, helping increase energy efficiency (more on that below) and alleviate stress on your heating and cooling systems.
Increased Energy Savings
Heating and cooling costs account for a major portion of your energy bills, but thanks to zone HVAC, you can save up to 30 percent on yearly costs. And because these systems are designed to run less frequently, it can help prevent future repairs or breakdowns—helping you save even more on upkeep.
