So often in the winter, we get complaints about homes or businesses with certain areas that are hard to keep warm. Turning up the temperature just seems to make some rooms hotter, but the affected areas just don’t improve. Installing a zoning system to work with your Cincinnati furnace is a smart solution that will bring comfort to the entire home or business, and boost energy efficiency!
A zoning system works with your furnace, but separates the home or business into zones. Each zone is given its own thermostat, which controls conditions only in that area without affecting the rest of the home or building. The zoning system allows heat to be distributed in a more even manner, and on-demand; simply using a single thermostat to control temperatures throughout the home is ineffective, and creates the hot and cold zones many are complaining about this winter.
Installing a zoning system offers homeowners and business owners great control over their indoor comfort, as well as benefits such as:
- Energy savings. Because zoning systems let you control heating use in one area, separate of the rest of the structure, you use less heat. Heat is produced and delivered only to the area(s) where it is called for, and maintains conditions in other zones appropriately. Less heat is used, because you’re not heating the entire home when you turn the thermostat up – just your zone! Save energy by keeping temperatures lower in unused areas without affecting comfort or system balance.
- Individual comfort control. You’d be hard-pressed to find a household or office where everyone is happy at the same temperature! Ever heard of thermostat wars? They start because the settings one person prefers just aren’t right for everyone.
With zoning, each person can control heating use in their zone without affecting others. Each zone’s settings can match the person’s preferences, and everyone can be comfortable despite a range of temperature choices.
