Having a central heating and cooling system in your home in the Knoxville area can greatly improve your quality of life. It enables you to keep your entire home at a comfortable temperature all year long, regardless of the conditions outside.
But, particularly if you have a large home, heating and cooling the entire thing all year long can cost a lot and use up a lot of energy. In these types of situations, you may want to look into having some form of zone control system installed. With a zoning system, you’ll be in a much better position to manage your heating and cooling needs and keep your entire family comfortable all year long. While these systems are relatively simple to operate once installed, it’s important to call the zoning experts at Hiller Plumbing, Heating & Cooling when first considering a system. Our experienced technicians can assess your home, make recommendations and complete the installation quickly and painlessly.
What Are Zone Control Systems?
Zone control systems are heating and cooling controls that actually allow you to separate your house into separate climate zones. These zones can then each be controlled individually, making it possible for you to keep your bedroom one temperature, the kitchen another and your living room still another.
These zone control systems themselves are generally wired directly into your heating and cooling system and have several access panels located in various parts of your home, through which you can manipulate the temperature in each zone.
Benefits of Zoning
So why would you want to have this added level of temperature control? There are actually quite a few reasons. To begin with, you’ll be able to heat or cool only the portion of the house that you’re using at any given moment. This can save you a ton in terms of energy costs because without a zone control system in place, you’d have to keep your entire house at the same temperature.
Being able to turn on the heat or air conditioning in only one part of the house means that you’ll be using only a fraction of the energy you would need to heat or cool the entire thing. You can also set different temperature levels in different areas that you use a lot based on the type of activity you carry out there.
For instance, when you’re cooking, you’re probably generating a fair amount of heat. In the summer, that means you’ll want some extra cooling in the kitchen area to counteract the heat you’re producing. In the winter, on the other hand, you’ll be able to turn down the heat in the zone that contains the kitchen because you’ll be naturally keeping it warmer through your cooking efforts.
You’ll also have an easier time keeping everyone in the household happy when they can each set their own temperature in their own area. It’s pretty common for different people to be comfortable at different temperatures, but with conventional thermostats it was always necessary to compromise. With a new zone control system in place, you simply don’t have to.
