With zoning, you can decide on different temperatures for each area or zone in your Dona Ana, New Mexico, home. Some HVAC systems create varying temperature zones with dampers inside your ductwork to send conditioned air where it’s needed. Others, such as ductless systems, have more than one indoor air handler. Adding zoning can provide more comfort for your family, energy savings, and better indoor air quality.
Zoning is ideal for preventing drafts, warm areas, and temperature differences between floors. It allows everyone in your home to set the temperatures they choose for their bedrooms without changing the way other rooms feel. A programmable or smart thermostat controls most zoning systems, letting you make changes wirelessly from almost anywhere. You can also get frequent updates through your computer or smartphone. With many smart thermostats, you can require a password or code for authorization to make changes. This keeps kids and guests from altering your settings without permission.
With zoning, you can avoid heating or cooling empty areas. That way, you can lower your utility bills and extend your HVAC system’s life by preventing wear. Zoning will pay for itself over time by conserving energy and making a breakdown less likely.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Zoning helps your heater and air conditioner’s air filter and ductwork stay clean longer by allowing it to run less often. Systems with more than one indoor air handler also have a separate air filter for each unit. These features keep bad smells, pollen, dust, and other pollutants from spreading, improving your indoor air quality.
