Methods and HVAC

Zoned heating and cooling is a good way to save cash on your utility bills if you live in a bigger house. For those who have never heard about zoned heating and cooling, it is pretty self-explanatory. First, your house will be divided up into zones. Once your house is divided up, a thermostat will be installed in each zone. A more advanced system that works on a singular central heating and cooling unit, is designed to control how much treated air is distributed to each zone. Obviously you do not want to spend cash on heating and cooling rooms which are usually not occupied. This is a really a good way to cut down on your utility bills. For a zoned heating and cooling system, there are a couple ways this can be installed. The first is with the more traditional plan of using an HVAC system which heats and cools the air. Air can be controlled to flow through your duct system according to the thermostat settings of your zones. You can also use a hydronic heating and cooling idea that relies on water. Similar to the way a furnace system has the flow of air managed, a boiler system can also have the flow of treated water managed to each zone accordingly as well. No matter which type of heating and cooling system you currently have installed, you have the choice of upgrading to a zoned heating and cooling method. The costs up front may be a lot, but in the end, depending on how long you plan to stay at your home, eventually the ends will justify the means as your savings add up.
