I’ve become an advocate of zoned control.
This fairly self-explanatory replace to our heating and cooling plan has most absolutely paid for itself.
I looked into the plan of zone control because our condo is quite large. There’s several rooms that never get used. I was paying to maintain those empty spaces at the ideal temperature. Plus, I toil from home. I occupy a single room while the rest of the condo is empty until the kids get off the busy. I was not cheerful with the energy waste of keeping the whole condo perfectly comfortable while I sat in our office. This plan was not only legitimately inefficient however put a lot of needless responsibility onto the furnace and cooling system. The longer run times would eventually lead to wear and tear, malfunction and failure. I expected the project to require a complete remodeling project. I was amazed with how actually the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor was able to access the ductwork and install a series of valves. These valves regulate airflow through the ventilation plan and are controlled by separate control units, and every one of us now have a control unit mounted in each room that allows us to customize the temperature, however because the control units include WIFI connectivity, we’re able to access them through an app on our phones. I don’t need to even be on the premises to make adjustments. I am not forced to interrupt our workday to make sure the condo is comfortable when the kids arrive lake house from school. Plus, I have the ability to target those rooms that tend to get warm or freezing.
