Home Zoning

Be Energy Smart with Our HVAC Zoning

Put an end to energy waste associated with heating and cooling seldom-used areas of your Atlanta residence. Elevate your energy efficiency and comfort by embracing a zoned HVAC system offered by Peachtree Service Experts.

But what exactly is zoned HVAC, and how does it function? With zoned HVAC, you have the ability to tailor the temperature control in specific rooms or zones. This technology employs dampers within the ductwork to manage airflow. The system effectively opens and closes these dampers to redirect air precisely where it’s needed in your home.

Moreover, substantial electricity savings can be within reach. When coupled with smart thermostats, proper zoning utilization could potentially lead to utility bill reductions of up to 35 percent, according to estimates from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Zone control is adaptable to a variety of HVAC equipment types, including furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps, and air handlers. To achieve optimal results, this equipment should ideally be two-stage, multistage, or variable-speed.

The integration of zoning necessitates precise design to ensure the proper distribution of airflow within the ducts.

Is a Zoned System Right for My Home?

Zoning systems for your home effectively address the most common comfort issues encountered—those persistent hot and cold rooms that never seem to reach the desired temperature.

This is particularly noticeable in multistory homes, where the upper floor often bears the brunt of excessive heat.

Numerous areas within your home can reap the advantages of zoning, including rooms featuring:

  1. Large Windows: Rooms with expansive windows often contend with temperature fluctuations due to sunlight exposure.
  2. Tall Ceilings or Lofts: Areas with high ceilings or loft spaces can struggle to maintain consistent temperatures.
  3. Abundant Sunlight: Rooms flooded with excessive sunlight may experience temperature irregularities.
  4. Intermittent Use: Spaces with infrequent occupancy, such as a guest bedroom, can benefit from zoning.
  5. Unique Temperature Requirements: Specialized spaces like home gyms, wine cellars, or music studios may have distinct temperature needs that zoning can cater to effectively.
