Running your heating and air conditioning system on high to change the temperature in a single room is impractical and expensive. Using these simple, yet effective, zoning techniques will ensure your home stays cool all summer long.
Open doors and windows consume more energy than closed ones. Your AC works harder to keep a house cool if you keep too many doors open. When a room is not in use, remember to close all of the doors and windows. You can even partially close the air vents to further reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home.
If you own a large home or one with multiple stories, you should consider adding more thermostats. This gives you the ability to control the temperature for different rooms in your home. For example, if you're hosting a party downstairs, you can lower the temperature in that area without cooling every other room in the house. Never install thermostats near windows or hot appliances, as this will cause your unit to run continuously.
Zone dampers make it easy to cut off or restrict air to certain areas of your home. Have your HVAC company install a zone damper in your air duct system. This will help keep the most used rooms in your home cooler without wasting energy on the unused spaces.
Zoning your home is one of the most effective ways to keep every room cool and comfortable throughout the hotter months. Are you tired of dealing with unpredictable temperatures in your home?
