Zoning in Denver, Boulder, Henderson, and the Surrounding Areas
One of the best ways to reduce your monthly energy bill is by zoning. Zoning is the separation of different rooms inside a home to ensure that they can operate at different temperatures. For instance, the temperature in the living room, kitchen, bathrooms, and master bedroom can be set to optimal levels if you neither have guests nor kids. A programmable thermostat can be used to control the temperatures in different rooms of your home. It is important to note that hydronic and geothermal heating systems are best suited for creating temperature zones inside of a building. A split ductless air conditioning system can also be used to create zones, but each room must have its own air handler.
To create different zones inside of a building, two things must be done:
– Sealing: To properly separate different rooms in the home, there needs to be proper sealing around the doors and windows. Sealing your doors and windows will prevent air in other rooms from interacting with and affecting the temperature in a room.
– Control: For zones to be created, there must be proper control of the heating and cooling systems. A programmable thermostat is the best automated control system for different zones. For a programmable thermostat to work, however, each room must have a temperature measuring device to provide the programmable thermostat with a signal indicating the temperature of the room.
Choosing an HVAC Company
When looking for an HVAC company to create the different zones in your home, the most important factor to consider is experience. The ideal HVAC company must have done similar jobs in the recent past, and it should also employ certified technicians who are thoroughly trained. The firm must also be licensed, insured and bonded. This will ensure you do not expose yourself to unnecessary liabilities.
