The Benefits of Zone Control AC in California

The Benefits of Zone Control AC in California

Depending on your AC system, you can either cool parts of your house or the whole thing. However, no matter which option you choose, you have to choose a single temperature for the whole house. But what if you can choose multiple temperatures? Zone control AC allows for more efficient temperature control by heating and cooling individual different areas. Let Crystal Blue tell you about why it’s a good idea to install zone control AC in California this summer!


Here are four benefits your house can receive if it has zone control AC in California:


Energy efficiency

One of the biggest advantages of zone control AC is that you don’t have to cool the entire house. There are probably one or two rooms in your house that you don’t use very often. Because of that, you can have your AC not cool those room so you can save some energy and money. This is especially useful in two-story homes because the second floor tends to be warmer than the first. In addition, this system lowers your AC’s workload, extending its overall lifespan.


Comfortable living

You’ve probably had the arguments before. Someone in the house likes it 72°F while someone else wants it to be 68°F. With zone control AC, you don’t have to settle for a middle ground! Family members can set a room’s temperature to their comfortable temperature without affecting the entire house.


Better indoor air quality

Zoning systems, especially with ductless systems or multiple HVACs, keep their zones separate and don’t let as much air travel around your home. This can keep mold, dust, and other airborne contaminants from spreading through your home as easily. This is especially useful if someone in your home has asthma, allergies, or some other respiratory problem.


Remote control

Some zone control AC systems come with the ability to adjust the temperature remotely. This is highly convenient for if you want to have your AC not run when no one’s home. In addition, you can tell your AC to start up as you go home from work so your home will be nice and cool when you arrive.

5 Benefits of a Whole-Home Fan System

5 Benefits of a Whole-Home Fan System

Are you looking for a cheap yet effective alternative to an AC? A whole-home fan system might be a good investment. This system is installed in the ceiling in the upper levels of the house, where it’s connected to the attic. From there, it draws hot air inside the house outside through some vents while it pulls in cooler air from outside. These underutilized systems can do plenty to help the homes that own them.


Here are five benefits that a whole-home fan system offers:


Fast startup

Compared to central air, a fan system is much quicker at starting up and getting the house cool. This is because ACs work by cooling down the air in the house, which takes more time to work. You can generally expect to feel the effects of a fan system within minutes of turning it on. Be warned that they only work if the air outside is cooler than the air indoors.


Save money

A good percentage of the average homeowner’s expenses are from cooling their homes. Wouldn’t it be nice to make some cuts to that expense? With this fan system, now you can! As well as being cheaper to run and more energy efficient, some cities and utility companies offer rebates and discounts to homeowners who install them. In a mild area like California, you can use the fan system even less, saving yet more money.


Extend your HVAC’s lifespan

In the event that you do have an HVAC unit, a fan system can compliment your preexisting unit. During the cooler parts of a summer day, a fan system alone can usually handle the heat. This can help reduce wear and tear on your HVAC, extending its life and lowering your maintenance bills.


Cheap and easy to install

If you’re worried that a fan system will be expensive and difficult to install, don’t worry! The average fan system generally costs about half as much as a window AC. As for installation, most fan systems are built to accommodate roof trusses and attic joists. In fact, it’s possible to install the system yourself with minimal outside help.


Remove stale air and moisture

Because fan systems work by releasing air from your house, the air in your house is a lot fresher. In addition, it also helps get rid of humidity in your home. Having a humid home can result in mold, mildew, bacteria, insect infestations, and more. Keep in mind that this isn’t effective if the air outside is hot and humid.
