If you have a furnace and traditional air conditioning in your Massachusetts or New Hampshire home, you’re probably used to thinking about home comfort on a whole-home scale. You have a particular temperature in mind that you like to keep the thermostat at, and you expect your whole home to stay at this temperature, all of the time. But did you know there is a way to customize your home comfort and use energy only when and where you need it?
How Home Zoning Works
What if you could customize your home comfort, assigning different temperatures to different parts of your home? Maybe you like your living room at a comfortable 72°F, for example, and prefer to sleep in a bedroom that’s a cool 68°F. This is called home zoning, and it’s a great way to feel more comfortable at home while conserving energy.
Home zoning uses multiple mini split units, also known as heat pumps, throughout the home to create “zones.” These mini splits provide energy efficient heating and cooling and allow you to change the temperature of one area in your home without affecting another. They also run on electricity and eliminate the need for ductwork. You might install one unit in a particularly hard-to-condition room to support your existing heating and air conditioning systems, or you might install multiple units for a whole-home heating and cooling solution.
Benefits of Home Zoning with Mini Splits
Home zoning with mini splits offers a number of benefits, including:
Customized indoor comfort
Extremely efficient heating and cooling
Home comfort only when and where you need it
Focused comfort control for hard-to-condition areas
Greater savings on your utility bills
Heating and cooling without the need for ductwork
Start Customizing Your Home Comfort
You wouldn’t expect one light switch to turn on all of the lights in your home, or one faucet to turn on all of the water, would you? Your HVAC system should be the very same, supplying home comfort only when and where you need it.
