Arguments over what temperature to set the thermostat are all too common in both homes and offices. Different people are comfortable at different temperatures, making it difficult to agree upon one set temperature for the HVAC or heating. Fortunately, there is a simple and economical solution: zoning systems. And one of the most trusted names in heating and air conditioning systems, Carrier, has several options.
How do zoning systems work?
Zoning systems work through multiple thermostats, a control panel, and dampers or variable frequency drives depending on the system. Each room that’s a part of the zoning system (making each room a ‘zone’) will have an individual thermostat, allowing a specific temperature to be set for that room only. The thermostats will read that room’s current temperature in real time, and direct air to that room as needed. Zoning systems allow different rooms of a residential or commercial building to maintain different temperatures.
Commercial buildings commonly benefit from both VVT (variable volume and temperature) and VAV (variable air volume) systems, while residential homes have multi-zone systems. They each differ in specifics and their best applications, and Fresh Air Concepts has the knowledge and expertise to help you decide which system is right for you.
Beyond being able to please everyone by keeping their room or zone at the temperature they desire, zoning systems also offer more benefits.
One additional benefit is energy bill savings. When certain rooms and zones are not in use, it’s possible to turn off the air to those areas only, without sacrificing heating or air conditioning to other parts of the home or building. This can save a substantial amount on energy bills by relieving your system’s workload.
Speaking of workload, zoning systems help move air more efficiently, which helps to extend the life of your HVAC or other heating and air conditioning system. Being able to turn air off to zones that aren’t in use decreases the strain of your system.
