How Home Zoning Can Help Reduce Energy Bills

Originally published Oct. 24, 2019, updated Jan. 30, 2022

Would you like to save money on energy bills in your Cape Coral, Florida, home? Do you find you have rooms in the house that are either too hot or too cold? Having an HVAC zoning system installed may be the solution you need. Let’s look at how HVAC zoning can help reduce your energy bills as well as increase the comfort level of your home.

Set the Temperature Individually

With a traditional HVAC system, there is one central thermostat that controls the temperature of the entire house. Conditioned air gets delivered throughout the house via the ductwork and the temperature is the same for every room. Generally, not everyone in the household can agree on the same temperature, as some people like the room either warmer or cooler.

With a zoned system, each area or room has its own smart thermostat that works with dampers installed in the ductwork. Each comfort control sends a signal to the dampers to open and close only when needed. You can save money by not overheating or overcooling each room, and everyone can stay comfortable.

Only Heat or Cool Rooms in Use

When you have rooms that nobody is using, like a guest room, you can save money with a zoned system by using the thermostat in that room to set the temperature to a higher or lower level than the rest of the house. Once the room is in use again, adjust the temperature for that room to a more comfortable level.

Increases HVAC Efficiency

With HVAC zoning the system doesn’t have to work constantly trying to heat or cool your whole home. The efficiency of the system is higher because it doesn’t use nearly as much energy. You will save money on your energy bills as well as on repair bills. In addition, a well-maintained zoned system will last longer, helping to extend the lifespan of your investment.
