Anyone who lives in a family home knows that this means compromise. But what if we told you that there was a way to make everyone happy? With zoned air conditioning, you can do just that!
Finding the right temperature for everyone
There’s no doubt that some of the rooms in your house are cooler than others, being situated on the side that doesn’t receive the hot afternoon sun. It’s difficult to find a temperature that suits every room in the house with standard ducted air conditioning. Queue zoning.
With zoning, you can control the temperature in each room based on how hot or cold it already is, and keep everyone happy!
Saving on your energy bill
Being able to zone rooms individually also means that you can shut off the air conditioning to rooms that are not in use.
You don’t want to be wasting money constantly pumping cool air into your teenage daughter’s room when she is never home! If everyone is watching a movie in the lounge room, shut off the air to the bedrooms and simply turn it on again once everyone heads to bed. This will dramatically change your electricity bill.
Schedule the air con to suit your lifestyle
Most zoning systems also include a timer function that can be set when you want your air conditioning to kick in and cut out.
If you don’t sleep with it on at night, you can time it to turn on an hour before you get up to make sure the dining room is nice and cool even though the morning sun is beating on the windows. Likewise, you’re able to set it to come on just before you get home from work so that you are always returning to a comfortable, cool house.
Do what’s best for the environment
Zoning systems such as MyAir come with eco functions that assist in saving energy, and therefore reducing environmental impact.
These functions often set your temperature at a level that will dramatically reduce power consumption but that you will hardly notice. MyAir also comes with the optional extra of adding a sensor system that can detect when a person has left the room in use, and alter the temperature accordingly. These functions are a great way to save money and the environment simultaneously!
