Is Home Zoning the right solution to boost home performance?
Many of our Sacramento-area customers ask how they can save money on their utility bills and benefit the environment. In many cases, boosting home performance includes upgrading the ductwork or home insulation and ensuring the your heating system was properly installed. Although in some cases home zoning is a solution, it does not always result in energy savings.
Common problems with zoning can include the following:
- Only works with some types of equipment
- Not guaranteed to improve comfort if ductwork is poorly designed
- Not guaranteed to save energy
- Could increase static pressure, which can shorten life of HVAC system
- If bypass duct is used it could cause coil to freeze
- Adds mechanical parts/complexity to system which increases likelihood of problems and costly repairs
If your home has uneven temperatures, we first ensure that your heating system is operating to optimum performance. Imbalances in your heating system or gaps in your home’s envelope can result in high energy bills and uncomfortable spaces. Our expert technicians can pinpoint underlying causes and provide cost-effective solutions.
Mini-splits for Effective Home Zoning
Mini-splits can provide true home zoning, allowing you to control the exact temperatures of each room. These systems allow each room to operate independently, with one centralized production unit. For our customers craving greater comfort and energy savings without cumbersome ductwork and mechanical equipment inside the home, mini-splits provide a solution.
One system can meet both your cooling and heating needs. These state-of-the-art systems can condition a single room, multiple rooms, or your entire home. They can be installed in both existing homes or new construction projects, resulting in true zoning.
Mini-splits enable true home zoning and comfort with one system. If you have rooms that are seldom used, they can be heated less without sacrificing comfort. Several air handlers can be connected to one outdoor condensing unit, enabling every room in your home to be independently conditioned for optimum comfort and energy efficiency. Because the mechanical units are located outside the home, you do not sacrifice square footage.
