3 Things You Need to Know About AC Zoning

When it comes to fitting out your home or office with air conditioning, one factor that rates high on importance is the zoning of where the air will be needed and how to get it there.

Some areas of your home or office may need extra heating or cooling than the rest of the building, and working out how to get the right amount of air at the right temperature to the right place is truly a science. On a hot day, the last thing you want is to be stuck in your home office in the heat, while your lounge room is icy cold. And you probably don’t want too much cold air hitting your bathroom while you’re having a shower, with heat lingering over your bed!

HVAC Zoning Is Adaptable

When you’re bearing in mind the air quality inside your home or office space, HVAC Zoning is one of the best ways to utilize your indoor air.

Because not all areas of your home or office will be used at the same time, HVAC zoning has some serious advantages. Zoning allows you to heat one area, and cool another based on your requirements. This is a very useful tool when it comes to changing sun positions within your home or office area. Rooms that catch a lot of sun will require more heating and vice versa for rooms that don’t get as much. Most people are different when it comes to feeling heat and cold, and when it comes to personal comfort, HVAC systems make tailoring the temperature a simple process.

HVAC Zoning is Cost Effective, Energy Efficient

HVAC Zoning set up correctly is far more energy efficient than standard AC systems, which of course will save you money. You will have more control over the temperature in each room of your home or office and the benefits will be seen when your utility bills arrive.

Although there is a larger initial outlay for supply and installation of HVAC systems, they will provide you with far better value for money and long-term savings on your energy bills.

Zoning Your Home or Office Is Simple

There are many great options when it comes to zoning each room in your home or office.

Two zone option– equally sized spaces can be configured to manage around 70% of the air that your HVAC system produces.

Three zone option– A three zone option will manage around 50%.

Four zone option – A four zone option will need more work, and duct expansion may be required, so ask you expert local installer for advice on the best option for your space.
