3 Advantages of Zoned Air Conditioning
Your air conditioner keeps things cool inside your home as the temperature rises outside. However, could your home be cooled more efficiently? Zoned air conditioning can make your Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, home more comfortable and save you money. Here are three advantages of installing zoned air conditioning.
Greater Home Comfort
It’s difficult to enjoy time spent inside your Florida home if you aren’t comfortable. With zoned air conditioning, an outdoor compressor unit connects to multiple indoor cooling units. Each indoor unit cools a separate “zone” in your home using its own thermostat. Therefore, you can set the temperature of each zone individually.
Zoned air conditioning is good for households where people prefer different temperatures. Having separate cooling zones allows everyone to enjoy his or her preferred temperature in particular rooms. You will also be able to use energy efficiently by targeting cooling in rooms that are hard to cool, without affecting other rooms in the home.
Less Wear and Tear
Central air conditioning controls the temperature of your entire home, but it is doomed to struggle. Large rooms, or those receiving plenty of sunlight, take longer to cool than other parts of the house. Zoned systems reduce the wear and tear on your HVAC by cooling these difficult rooms separately.
Targeting hard-to-cool areas, zoned air conditioners lower the temperature of a hot zone efficiently, with less struggle for the HVAC. Reducing wear and tear on your system extends its lifespan and helps you avoid costly replacements.
Reduced Utility Costs
There is little benefit to cooling every room to the same temperature. Using a zoned cooling system, you can set lesser-used rooms, at a higher temperature until you use them. Cooling only the zones you need is a smart way to save on utilities.
Installing a ductless HVAC system in your home allows you to set up zoned air conditioning easily. These modern systems are highly efficient, lowering what you pay for cooling.
