One way to get increased performance and efficiency for your air conditioning this summer is with a brand new system. But what if your current system isn’t quite ready to retire? Thankfully, there are upgrades available for your air conditioning system in Palmer Ranch, FL, that don’t require purchasing a whole new setup. Upgrading to a new programmable thermostat can help you save energy, and adding zone control to your air conditioning system can make your family members feel more comfortable throughout the day.
The thermostat is an important part of your AC system, but if you have a manual thermostat it may let you down. Manual thermostats are often inaccurate and it is sometimes difficult to set the dials and sliders exactly where you want them to be. Because of this, some homeowners may overcompensate, lowering the temperature and keeping the home cooler than you actually need it. Even one or two degrees’ difference can mean a lot of extra spending every month.
Digital, programmable thermostats have a clear display and can be set ahead of time, allowing you to save money by varying the temperature throughout the day. If your thermostat is not programmable, you may use energy using the AC when you’re away so your home is cool when you arrive. A programmable thermostat allows you to set the temperature to come on thirty minutes before you arrive instead.
Another way you can save money every month is with a zone control system. If you have a large home and some areas tend to be unoccupied throughout the day, a zone control system allows you to raise the temperature or turn off the AC in those areas only.
During zone control installation, a technician installs dampers in the ductwork that open and close to adjust air distribution. Separate thermostats control each zone in the home, or you can use a master thermostat to control each zone, making family members more comfortable.
