Zoning uses automatic zone dampers that are placed in your ducts to control airflow to certain rooms or zones of your home or office. Each damper is controlled by its own thermostat, making controlling your heating & cooling as simple as it is to control your lights.
Think about how you have a light switch for every room of the house, but typically only one thermostat. What costs more to operate, lighting or your HVAC System? On average HVAC is 55-65% of your monthly utility bill. Imagine being able to reduce this part of your utility bill 30% with zoning.
Today’s homes eliminate nearly all wasteful air leaks, helping to control energy costs. Because homes are air-tight, pollutants are trapped indoors. The health hazards from indoor air pollutants are broadly recognized as one of today’s top environmental hazards.
Study after study shows that as homes become tighter and more energy-efficient, more contaminants become trapped inside. The air we breathe in our homes is loaded with pollutants like pollen, lung-damaging dust, pet hair, dander, dust mites, tobacco smoke, spores, disease-causing bacteria, and viruses.
According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity – increasing the likelihood of catching colds, flu and upper respiratory ailments. The American Society of Otolaryngology even reports that it is important to prevent an overly dry environment because it makes people more susceptible to infection.
Central dehumidifiers pull air from every room in your home and remove the moisture and then sends dry air back throughout your heating ducts. It works in conjunction with your air conditioner to efficiently balance the humidity levels in your home.
