Summertime means hot weather, cool dips in the pool and, typically, higher utility bills. As your HVAC unit kicks on to keep your home comfortable, you use more power and drive up the monthly bill. At One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of the Bay Area, we specialize in providing customers with efficient options. Our solutions like air conditioning zoning systems will keep your energy consumption in check.
Using New Technology
A traditional thermostat sets the temperature for your entire home. It controls the kitchen, the family room, the bedrooms and even the fancy living room. The problem with that kind of system is that you likely do not need to spend money to cool areas that you rarely use.
Air conditioning zoning systems use multiple thermostats throughout the home, all wired to ductwork to control the temperature of their allotted space. If you have rooms that you do not use or only use at certain times of the day, you can program the thermostats adjust the temperatures in different spaces accordingly.
How It Helps
There are several reasons that people are increasingly asking Santa Rosa CA HVAC companies to install a zoning system:
- It saves money by reducing the amount of power needed to cool your home.
- It helps even out temperatures for homes that have rooms that get warmer than others.
- It satisfies individuals who prefer a bedroom to be cooler than the rest of the home.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, utilizing air conditioning zoning systems can save as much as 30 percent on heating and cooling expenses. The DOE also notes that an HVAC’s work accounts for almost half of a household’s utility costs, which means substantial savings for a homeowner who elects to use an efficient system.
