Why Are the Rooms in My Home Different Temperatures?
When you set the thermostat in your home to a particular temperature, the expectation is that the entire home will be cooled to this same setting. However, this isn’t always the case, especially in large homes with architectural features like large windows and vaulted ceilings, or in any home with multiple stories.
Often, the first floor will feel a lot cooler than the second floor, and larger rooms will take a lot longer to cool than smaller rooms. Your air conditioner has to remain running to help these rooms reach the right temperature, which can cause energy bills to spike. But we’ve got a solution for you.
The Solution: Zone Control
A zone control system is a system of dampers and thermostats that divide your home into different zones. You can set the temperature in one area of the home to be different than the temperature in the others. Or, you can set a single temperature throughout the home, and your system will be able to evenly deliver cool air to each room.
When a thermostat detects that one room has met the set temperature, the dampers block airflow into that room, while other rooms continue to cool down. Your air conditioner does not have to waste energy cooling rooms that have already cooled, and you’ll feel more comfortable no matter where you are in the home.
Your new zone control system offers additional benefits as well. Family members won’t have to argue over the temperature settings, as they may be able to set the temperature exactly to their preferences in any area of the home. And you can reduce your energy bills even more by raising the temperature in unoccupied areas of the home. Call a professional HVAC technician and ask about zone control installation today!
