Should You Go with Zone System for Your HVAC

If you are tired of having an imbalance in temperatures in your home or office building, you may be suffering from inadequate cooling options, with a solution option of zoning for your HVAC system. If during the summer months, it seems some rooms never cool off, or in the winter it seems some rooms never warm up while others do, you may need to consider zone systems for your residential or commercial cooling needs.

To determine if you should seriously consider changing your current ac system and retrofit a zone system or to have a new installation all together, consider the following:

1.       Some areas get hotter or colder than others

2.       Do you have multiple floors in your floor plan

3.       Do you have vaulted ceilings

4.       Do any of your rooms have floor to ceiling windows

5.       Do some rooms get little to no use

6.       Does a part of your structure lay over a basement

7.       Do certain users have different temperature needs than the rest

If you answered yes to two or more of the above questions, you should consider contacting Expert Air, your local HVAC contractor, to determine if a zone system is advised for your home or office. Ideally, you can expect to spend around $2,500 - $3,500 if the zone system is installed at the beginning, whereas if you are installing only part of the overall HVAC system, you can anticipate higher costs.  To get an accurate estimate, contact Expert Air for your onsite evaluation.

 

 The main factors to evaluate when considering zoning for your HVAC system include:

 

·         Comfort

o   Improved comfort is the main goal for HVAC zone system

o   Eliminate hot or cold spots, regardless of ac system running

·         Save Money

o   Conserve energy and lower your monthly utility bill

o   Specifying the area for cooling/warming instead of a whole home/building means no wasted energy

·         Control

Types of Attic Ventilation, with 5 common types, each has its own set of pros and cons.

 

1.       Static Vent- moving parts means it will fail over time and use.  Also only offers ventilation in the immediate area.

2.       Ridge Vent – Best bang for your buck, you get the most ventilation for the amount of money spent

3.       Gable Vent – Specific design placement of vents may have ineffective results

4.       Power Fan – Constant and increased utility bill as it’s run by electricity.  Allows for constant use for consistent moisture alleviation

5.       Turbine Vent – Wind powers this vent, which equates to lower utility bills, but higher chance for ineffectiveness if the wind is not blowing

 

Attic ventilation is important all-year round, from keeping warm temperatures inside during the cool winter months as well as ensuring proper exhalation of accumulated moisture during the hot summer days.
