TOTAL HOME COMFORT: THE LITTLE LUXURY YOU'LL NOTICE EVERY DAY
Now, more than ever, we’re looking to improve our energy efficiency. Americans are paying more attention to our carbon footprints and we also want to mitigate the skyrocketing costs of home heating and cooling. Homeowners with conventional, forced-air systems may find them expensive and difficult to upgrade. Even after making improvements, homeowners are stuck with hot and cold spots throughout the house. Also, compared to modern variable-capacity heat pumps, these conventional systems aren’t energy efficient.
Homes that have been previously difficult to update include the following:
- Historic homes: These homes are difficult to renovate. Homeowners may not want to risk losing any of the charm that comes with owning an older home, leaving them stuck with inefficient baseboards, radiators, and window AC units.
- Townhouses and condos: Restricted by space and HOA regulations, it can be impossible to install large, outdoor condensers for forced-air systems.
The Answer? Zoned Comfort Solutions®
Thanks to modern advancements in technology, owners of all types of properties can achieve total home comfort and reduce their overall energy consumption. These modern systems follow ENERGY STAR® guidelines, which set forth strict standards for electricity usage. ENERGY STAR appliances virtually guarantee a lifetime of cost savings.
Zoned Comfort Solutions consist of up to 8 indoor air-handling units connected to a variable-capacity heat pump. Each zone is conditioned according to the homeowner’s preferences and served by an individually-controlled indoor unit. Indoor units are available in diverse, attractive styles including wall- and floor-mounted units, recessed ceiling cassettes and ducted multi-position air handlers. The ability to vary capacity enables these system to deliver up to 40% in energy cost savings.
ONE SMALL STEP TOWARDS SAVINGS, ONE GIANT LEAP TOWARDS WHOLE-HOME COMFORT
Overhauling your home heating and cooling system is no small undertaking. There are times, however, when it can make sense to take the leap. Those times include the following:
- Home Renovations: Every home needs to be refreshed from time to time. If your family is tackling a renovation project and you’re bringing your home into the modern era, it’s a perfect time to tackle whole-home zoning.
- Upgrading an Obsolete System: All good things must come to an end, and unfortunately, older fixed-capacity HVAC systems will need to be replaced. Instead of replacing a legacy HVAC system with a newer model of the same old thing, consider updating to a multi-room system. They can make use of your legacy ductwork, but the end result will be a far more efficient and far more comfortable system.
CUSTOMIZABLE COMFORT TO MEET YOUR NEEDS
Zoned Comfort Solutions are completely customizable. You can strategically place indoor units in the home based upon the cooling and heating needs of each room or zone. Those units can be mounted on walls, floors, or on the ceiling. They are connected to the outdoor unit or units with refrigerant piping that is about three inches in diameter. No walls need be torn down, and the units can be carefully placed to blend into the aesthetics of both the interior and the exterior of the home. They eliminate the logistical and cosmetic challenges of traditional, forced-air systems. They also allow you to experience room-by-room comfort.
No matter what type of home you own, Zoned Comfort Solutions allow your family to achieve year-round comfort while reducing energy consumption.
