Which Comfort Controls Are Right For You?
A zoning system is a heating and cooling system that uses dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home. This allows for the creation of customized temperature zones throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency. Almost every household can benefit from a zoned system. That’s because most homes have a room that’s always too hot or too cold, and family members with different temperature preferences. AC Sales can help you with this. Zoning systems allow you to accommodate those different comfort needs, while also helping you save energy. Instead of setting one temperature for your entire house, zoning systems let you create temperature-controlled zones, so you don’t waste energy overheating or overcooling other areas.
A thermostat is a component which senses the temperature of a system and performs actions so that the system’s temperature is maintained near a desired set point. Thermostats are used in any device or system that heats or cools to a set point temperature, examples include building heating, air conditioners, HVAC systems, water heaters, as well as kitchen equipment including ovens and refrigerators. In scientific literature, these devices are often broadly classified as thermostatically controlled loads (TCLs). Thermostatically controlled loads comprise roughly 50% of the overall electricity demand in the United States. A thermostat operates as a “closed loop” control device, as it seeks to reduce the error between the desired and measured temperatures. AC Sales can help you choose the right thermostat for your needs.
