How HVAC Zone Control Systems Save You Money
Heating and cooling costs account for over 40% of the average household’s utility bill. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that zoned heating and cooling can save consumers up to 30% on their energy bills. With zoned heating and cooling systems, homeowners can control the temperature in each room, minimizing energy costs and improving overall comfort.
The Benefits of Zoned HVAC
- Zoned heating will save money by reducing the amount of time that the heating and cooling system is running.
The HVAC system has to run much more continuously to heat an entire house compared with heating just one area. In addition, many homeowners will set the temperature differently in various parts of the house to further reduce costs. If there are rooms that are rarely used, they don’t need to be heated as high, or if you prefer to sleep in a cooler space, that temperature can be lower as well. Another great example is houses that have spaces that are only used certain times of the day. There’s no reason to keep the heat set as high at night in an office that’s only used from 9-5. Many people will set that thermostat to adjust down after a set time and adjust up again in the morning.
- In addition to the immediate cost savings associated with lower energy bills, there are long term cost savings as well.
By running the HVAC system less time per day it will often last much longer and thus reduce repair and replacement costs down the road.
