Three Ways Zoning Can Benefit Your Air Conditioning

Sep 1, 2017

Summers in Brisbane put a lot of stress on your central air conditioning system. Even though it is still late winter, the idea of spending another hot and humid summer with a system that may not meet your cooling needs may have you thinking about replacement. If portions of your home are too warm or too cold, it may not be the fault of your central air conditioning unit. That is because your home has only one zone so the system treats every area in the same manner.

What is Zoning?

Zoning allows a building or home to be divided into two or more separate zones, each of which has individual control over a separate area. Typically, your home will be divided into zones that have similar air control needs. Electronically controlled dampers and thermostats automatically adjust the temperature in each zone. This saves energy by not cooling areas where it’s not needed. Zoning doesn’t affect the efficiency of your air conditioner, but it does make the most efficient use of the system. Zoned systems can save consumers about 30% in electricity bills.

Following are three benefits that zoning can provide.

Personalise Room Temperatures

With zoning, you can customise temperatures in your home so that everyone remains comfortable. You can raise temperatures for rooms you don’t use as much, such as bedrooms guest rooms or play areas, while maintaining normal temperatures in the family room, kitchen and other frequently used areas. Establishing zones can make life more comfortable for family members with different temperature preferences.

Target Hot or Cold Spots

Your central air conditioner works to keep your entire home at one temperature, but you may find areas that are too hot or too cold, which can be especially annoying in rooms you use often. Creating targeted heating and cooling zones allows you to adjust the temperature in a problem area, such as a family room exposed to late afternoon sun.

Distribute Cooling Only Where Necessary

Trying to keep all the rooms in your home at one temperature is virtually impossible. Ground floors, first floors, attics and more all have different needs, as do rooms that have a lot or a little sunlight. With zoned systems you can get cooling how and when you need it.

The air conditioning experts at Intagas can design a zoning system for your home that will make your current or new central air conditioning system work more efficiently. Contact us today to find out more.
