Home temperature regulation isn’t always as simple as just programming your thermostat. Rooms located on the southern side of your home may warm quicker than those on the northern end. Rooms with wall-to-wall windows may seem too hot on a summer afternoon, but cool off quickly as the sun subsides. These are just a few of the variables North Hollywood homeowners must take into consideration when attempting to regulate the climate of their homes.
Luckily, there is a solution. Zoning systems allow the flexibility of programming different temperature settings for different sections of your household. Using multiple thermostats, you can account for southern and northern exposure, multiple windows or even the personal temperature preferences of each member of your family. In fact, zoned temperature control can be beneficial for a multitude of reasons.
- Temperature settings from room to room can be adjusted according to your unique preferences.
- Daily and weekly family routines can be taken into account.
- Settings can be adjusted to account for the varied necessities of homes with multiple floors.
- Finished rooms in the attic and basement can be addressed without having to unnecessarily heat and cool an entire level of your home.
- Adjustments can be made to account for vaulted ceilings, lofts or multiple windows.
In addition to the flexibility that zoning systems provide in terms of home climate control, they do a great deal to boost energy efficiency and increase energy savings over the long term. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, the combination of zoning systems and a programmable thermostat can save homeowners as much as 30 percent in annual heating and cooling costs.
