Air Conditioning Zones for Your Home

Most cars come with dual climate control to make each passenger comfortable. Why not have that same level of comfort in your home. It can not only make your home more comfortable but it can save on your monthly bill as well. Most homeowners think that having areas in their home that are too hot or too cold is just something they have to live with, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

With solutions such as forced air zoning, hydronic heating, thermostats with precise temperature control and more, you can get rid of pesky hot and cold spots in your home.

Forced air zoning systems work by having dampers installed in your ductwork that open and close as needed based on each zone’s thermostat settings. When a zone doesn’t need to be heated or cooled, the dampers close to save energy and maximize comfort elsewhere.

Hydronic zoning systems or radiant heating, use hot water and steam instead of air. Heating with water can increase your comfort level because it is less dry than a standard forced-air heating system. A modern hydronic heating system can use traditional cast iron radiators, low profile baseboard radiators, or the increasingly popular, and invisible, radiant in-floor heating. Hydronic systems are easily divided into zones for perfect comfort and the most efficient use of energy.

By only heating and cooling the rooms you are using, you can cut down on the run time of your system resulting in maximum comfort and greater savings. For all of your HVAC needs, contact Spencer Air Conditioning and Heating at (972) 446-COOL (2665) or by logging on to spencerairconditioning.com.
