Zoned A/C Systems are the Best Option for Older Homes

The Birmingham, AL area is full of old homes that energetic people are working hard to renovate, adding modern comforts while preserving architectural details and beauty.

One stumbling block: How do you sensibly cool and heat one of these old homes without disturbing the architecture and style that give it personality?

A smart option: Zone the heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

This approach maintains the historic look while also giving your family the most efficient, technologically advanced comfort.

A zoned system lets you establish two or more areas where temperatures are different as the occupants wish – maybe Mama Bear wants it colder, Papa Bear wants it warmer and Goldilocks wants it just right.

The zoned system approach means you get the desired temperature in each area, which can lead to lower utility bills and family harmony. And programmable thermostats give you remote control – and reduce the energy load, too.

Zoned HVAC can solve problems – the top floor that is warmer than other floors, the bedroom you don’t use while your child is away at college, an area baked by the summer sun because it has a skylight or big windows.

These zoned systems can be done with indoor or outdoor units, so you have plenty of options to consider.
