Factors that contribute to uncomfortable or uneven cooling and heating in a home include the home's design, heat gain/loss through air leaks and insulation deficiencies, air pressure imbalances and more. These are some situations where a zoning system should prove beneficial in a home:
- Room additions
- Retrofitted rooms (e.g. attic and basement)
- Two or more levels of living space
- Sprawling single-level home
- Areas with expansive windows
- Lofts and vaulted ceilings
- Home offices and media rooms
- Infrequently used rooms or areas
Upgrading and new construction
If you're upgrading your cooling/heating system or undertaking new construction, this is an ideal time to install a zoning system. We can use the calculations on heat gain/loss, which likely were performed to size the new heating/cooling system and ductwork, to help configure efficient zoning. This,will reduce the load placed on the cooling/heating system for greater energy savings, reduced wear and extended life span.
Other factors are considered, too, such as possible home efficiency upgrades, energy-usage habits, number of occupants, hours the home is occupied and more.
