Welcome to the dog days of summer! Aren’t you glad you’re here? The humid weather, the mosquitoes, the even-higher-than-normal temperatures – they’re all indicators that everyone’s favorite time of the year in Tampa has arrived, and it’s bigger and better than ever! Right, well, you get the idea. It’s hot. You’re doing your best to keep everyone in your family cool at home, but with just one thermostat, you don’t have a lot of options. Your choices are either to deep-freeze every room at once and risk spending a boatload on energy or sweat off every pound on your body to save on bills.

Two great choices, aren’t they? Well, don’t fret too badly, because there’s another option, and it occupies a space that serves as a happy medium between the two polar-opposite examples above. Let the AC experts at Acree Plumbing, Air & Electric tell you all about Zoned Air Systems and how they can vastly improve the efficiency at which your home is cooled. And when you decide to make the switch, look no further than our team of experts to help you have it installed. They’ll have it done in no time, and you’ll be wondering why you didn’t get one earlier!

They Offer Convenience

A zoned air system effectively does what the name implies: its divvies up the areas of your home into separate “zones,” where each one is controlled by an individual thermostat apart from the others.

  • With this setup, you’re able to adjust the temperature of each one however you – or another member of the family – would like. If someone wants their office to stay warmer, but someone else prefers their bedroom to stay frigid, then that’s absolutely possible.
  • It’s essentially the same concept as buying several window units or portable air conditioners, except you’re saving a significant amount of money by opting for this instead.

They Save You Money

Gone are the days of setting one singular temperature for the whole house and forcing everyone to deal with it. Before, if you needed to make one room colder, then everybody else just had to figure out a way to compensate.

  • The energy required to adjust an entire home’s worth of temperature changes adds up pretty quickly on your bill. However, it’s not like there was another option!
  • But with a switch to a zoned air system, you’ll reap the rewards. According to the Department of Energy, a zoned air system can save you up to 30 percent on your energy bill.
  • It also eliminates the need for you to spend money controlling the temperature of rooms like guest bedrooms or recreational spaces – ones you don’t use as much.

The cost to have a zoned air system can be a tad high up-front, but that will be mitigated and easily compensated for over the life of it thanks to the savings you’ll pocket each month. A zoned air system will be your best friend over the remainder of the summer, as well as when we get into the colder months.
