Imagine this: you’re upstairs in bed on a cold Boston night, while your spouse is in the kitchen prepping tomorrow night’s dinner.
While you want nothing more than to turn up the heat to create a cozy environment, your spouse is hoping to cool off as they slave over the stove.
Fortunately, if you have a multi zone ductless system, your problem is solved. You can set a different temperature for different rooms, thus allowing everyone to enjoy the environment that’s best for them.
The ability to never again fight over the temperature in your home is reason enough to consider a
multi zone ductless system. However, that’s just the start. Here are some other benefits:
On the surface, it’s easy to assume that a complex multi zone HVAC system would add to your heating and cooling costs. But as you learn more, you’ll come to find that it’s actually designed to save you money.[i]
According to the United States Department of Energy, a zoning system can save you up to 30 percent on energy costs. Best yet, this holds true both for your heating and cooling bills.
Here’s why: a multi zone system allows you to better regulate energy use in your home, such as by turning down the temperature in rooms that are less frequented during the winter months.
Less Strain on Your System
Imagine how much strain you put on your home’s HVAC system if it only has one zone. It’s forced to heat or cool your entire home, even if some areas don’t need it.
With a multi zone ductless system, only the areas that require heat or cool air will get it, which reduces the amount of strain.[ii] In turn, your system works in a more efficient and economical manner.
Furthermore, less strain reduces the risk of a mechanical issue that can leave you without heat and cost you money in repairs.
Choose Your Zones
If you’re replacing a traditional system with a multi zone ductless system or building a new home from the ground up, you have the opportunity to choose your zones based on the layout of the structure and personal preference.
For example, if you have a two story home, you could have a zone for the following areas:
- First floor and basement (if applicable)
- Second floor hallway and bedrooms
- Master suite
Best yet, if you have a lot of people living in your home with unique wants and needs, you can assign a zone to individual rooms.
Also, with a multi zone ductless system, you can add zones when necessary, such as if you construct an addition.
