How Zoned HVAC Balances Fall Temperatures in Wisconsin
Every Wisconsinite knows that fall weather can feel like both summer and winter in the same week. At Gross Heating & Air Conditioning, we’re dedicated to helping you stay comfortable no matter what it looks like outside. And we know that a zoned HVAC system can be just what you need to do so. Below, we explain how this solution helps you balance inconsistent temperatures year-round.
What Is a Zoning System?
This setup divides your house into sections (or “zones”) and lets you set custom temperatures in each one. For instance, say your home has three levels: the basement, the first floor, and the second floor. These would each be split into different HVAC zoning areas, each with its own thermostat. You can change the temperature in the basement without affecting the upper two levels—or the first floor without adjusting the others.
How Zoning Helps Avoid Inconsistent Fall Temperatures
Because different zones have different thermostats, you can set multiple temperatures across the house. Using the three-story home example from above, say your basement is set to 68 degrees, your first floor to 72, and your second floor to 75. If the day starts cool outside but gets warmer after a few hours, you can spend your morning on the second floor and then move down a level later. Or, if you don’t want to keep moving, you can simply change your zone’s thermostat setting without heating or cooling the entire house.
Improves Energy Efficiency
With zone control, you only need to adjust one area of your home at a time. Because of that, your heating and cooling systems won’t use as much energy as they would to condition an entire house. That can keep your utility bills lower, which is especially nice when the weather fluctuates like it does in fall.
Keeps the Whole Family Happy
The experts at Gross Heating know that no two people in your home are the same. While you might like the temperature warmer, someone else in your family might run hot. Zoning can solve both comfort problems at once. With different thermostats across the house, you can set one to keep you warm while your family member can cool off elsewhere.
