5 Reasons to Introduce an HVAC Zoning System to Your L.A. HomeIf you’re familiar with what an HVAC zoning system is, then you know it’s a more efficient way to heat and cool your home, while keeping each family member’s individual needs in mind. Not sure if zoning is right for your L.A. home? Consider these amazing benefits.

Improved Comfort

Dad might want to cool his upstairs office, while Mom wants the baby’s room to be warm during nap time. In a home with one thermostat, it’s impossible to have both. However, with a zoning system, different rooms in your home can be heated and cooled individually so everyone enjoys maximum comfort.

Lower Energy Bills

You spend the day in your living room or kitchen and nights asleep in your bedroom. With zoning, you can heat and cool these sections of your home separately depending on the time of day to conserve energy and lower electricity bills. Studies show you stand to save up to 30 percent with an HVAC zoning system.

Greater Convenience

Most homes have a centrally located thermostat somewhere on the ground floor. If you wake up cold in your upstairs bedroom, you have to trudge all the way downstairs to adjust the temperature. The convenience of having a separate thermostat upstairs is easy to realize when you want to adjust the temperature at night.

Less Wear and Tear on the System

Dampers in the ductwork direct air precisely where it’s needed. When only a portion of your home is being conditioned, the equipment gets a break. This puts less wear and tear on the system, lowering the frequency of repairs and helping the equipment last longer.

Good Common Sense

If you had a single light switch to control all of the lights in your home, you’d waste a lot of energy and annoy people who want their room dark. In this same way, zoning is simply good common sense! If your home has vaulted ceilings, lots of large windows or multiple stories, you stand to benefit the most.
