Home automation zoning uses smart technology to provide zoned temperature control in your Hillsborough, NC, home. A smart thermostat and app connected to your home automation system allow you to control airflow and temperatures in any area of your house. The smart system offers many benefits, including reduced energy bills, improved efficiency, enhanced comfort and convenience.
Reducing Energy Bills
Without zoning, your HVAC system uses much more energy to heat your home. Of course, this leads to higher energy bills.
According to the American Council for an Energy Efficiency Economy (ACEEE), zoning can help you up to 15% on heating costs. Regular HVAC maintenance prevents your furnace from overworking, increasing energy efficiency and savings even more.
Programming your thermostat to turn the furnace on or off at certain times conserves energy. For example, you could program the furnace to turn off when you’re not home. You could also use motion sensors, so a zone only heats up when someone’s around.
Adjusting temperature and airflow as needed also conserves energy and saves money. Strategically placed sensors and dampers help improve furnace efficiency and boost energy savings. Zoning prevents inefficient, uneven heating.
Many HVAC systems don’t provide maximum comfort. Often, certain areas in your home are cooler or warmer than others. An un-zoned HVAC system also can’t account for personal comfort levels.
With automation zoning, you can program airflow and temperatures to match personal preferences. So, you control whether a room is warmer or cooler than others. You also control if and when a room gets heated.
Automated sensors detect personal comfort levels and adjust temperatures as needed. You can program airflow and temperature settings for every person in your home.
Automation zoning provides unmatched convenience and control. You can adjust your smart thermostat settings from an app on your phone, tablet or computer. Thus, you can control your home’s temperature and airflow from anywhere.
Adjust the settings according to your work schedule, or create a schedule that provides zoned temperature control throughout the day. Using sensors, dampers and remote control, you can set the thermostat and forget about it. If you want this type of convenience from home automation zoning, call Ted’s HVAC for a consultation.
