Air conditioning systems really have their work cut out for them here in Florida. Our summer weather is notoriously hot and humid, and our summer heat, of course, lasts much of the year. Because of this, savvy homeowners are always on the lookout for ways in which to make their air conditioning systems not only more effective, but more efficient as well. It is difficult to attain this level of performance quality, but the use of a zone control system in West Palm Beach, FL is a reliable way of doing so. Read the following information, and schedule service with the pros at Envirotech Air Quality Services to have the job done right.
How Zone Control Works
Zone controlled cooling entails the use of a ducted HVAC system, motorized dampers, a control panel, and multiple thermostats. The dampers are installed into the ductwork that your HVAC system uses to distribute cooled or heated air throughout a home. These dampers are wired into the central control panel. So, too, are the thermostats, with one installed in each zone of the house. You can decide, with your HVAC technician, just how the zoning of your home will work. As the temperature at any given thermostat is adjusted, the corresponding dampers will respond, allowing you to cool different areas of your home to different levels. This has a few benefits.
When you cool (or heat) any area of your home, only to the degree that you desire, you can cut down on the amount of energy that you use in maintaining a comfortable living environment. You don’t turn on every light in the house when you come in at night, do you? Take more control over energy efficiency in your home.
The fact of the matter is that different people are, quite simply, comfortable at different temperatures. If your home is one temperature throughout, there is a good chance that a member of your family is not really that comfortable. Eliminate arguments over temperature settings by maintaining different temperatures in different areas.
