Zoned heating and cooling is getting a lot of attention these days as homeowners seek ways to both improve home comfort and reduce energy bills. Effective zoning requires more planning and hardware at the start, but it can be worth the investment of both time and money when the installation is complete.

One of the benefits that ductless air conditioning systems offer is the fact that the individual blowers they use can be regulated independently of the others. This allows for different temperatures to be easily maintained in different areas of the house. However, you can achieve the same benefit with a more traditional split central air conditioning system; you just need a zone control system in order to do so. In order to fully understand how beneficial a zone control system in Fresno, CA can really be, you must first understand how it is that such a system operates. Here is some information to help you to do so. Contact Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning for more details, or to schedule service.
If someone told you that it’s possible to keep the temperature in your home comfortable while still saving money on your monthly utility bills, you might assume that it would require installing a brand new HVAC system or sealing off portions of your home. Fortunately, there’s a different way to achieve it: zone dampers and systems.
Improving the comfort of your Fresno area home could be as easy as installing a zoning system upgrade. In many cases, homeowners dissatisfied with home comfort are resigned to the idea that upgrading the HVAC equipment – whether furnace, A/C, boiler or heat pump – is the only solution to the problem. Before investing a large sum of money in a new system, talk to your HVAC contractor about a zoning system upgrade. A zoning system employs multiple thermostats for targeted indoor climate control, allowing home occupants to set temperatures in individual zones and saving energy by not providing heating or cooling to unoccupied areas.
Many homes use one thermostat to regulate temperatures for the entire house, despite the fact that different parts of the house have different climate-control needs. For families that want greater control over the heating and cooling levels in their home, however, a zoning system makes a great option. Rather than struggling to maintain one temperature for the whole house, zoning divides the home into more than one section, each with its own separate temperature control. Each zone might be a single room or multiple rooms.
Setting one thermostat temperature for an entire home isn’t going to cut it, especially if you live in a larger or multiple-story home. You’ve probably noticed that certain areas of your home are always warmer or cooler than the rest. Luckily, a zoning system design is a fairly simple solution to most home heating and cooling inconsistencies.
Now that the California sun is really warming things up, you’ll want to turn your air conditioning on to cool your house down. But take a moment to think about last summer. Was your entire home consistently cool or were some rooms too warm while others were too cool? What about the second floor? Was it too hot to sleep up there on some of the warmer nights?
It almost goes without saying that maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout your home is crucial to your well-being and happiness. Being too hot or too cold can increase your stress level and leave you feeling drained and tired. Fortunately, a zoning system will increase your home comfort by creating a relaxing and inviting atmosphere in every room in your home.

Is Part Of Your House Too Cold? Is Another Part Too Hot? A Zoning System Makes Every Part Just RightTuesday, October 4th, 2011
It is fodder for late-night talk show hosts and part of cocktail party banter: it’s the proverbial battle over temperature so common between genders. In addition to individual comfort preferences, and perhaps regardless of gender, your home might have hot and cold zones that occur no matter where the thermostat is set. Zoning systems are a great solution to these problems.
