An HVAC zoning system is a system for your heating & cooling that utilizes dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home. With zoning, different areas of your home can be easily controlled independently of one another. This allows for the creation of customized temperature zones throughout the home for increased comfort and efficiency.
Most households can benefit from a zoned HVAC due to room temperature fluctuations, personal temperature preferences or lack of use in certain areas of your home. By having a zoned HVAC, you can accommodate those different comfort needs, while helping you save energy and money.
The installation process includes placing automated dampers into your existing duct work that allow air flow and temperature control as needed throughout different levels in your home.

Can I Add Zones to My HVAC?
Yes, zoning systems can be installed into an existing HVAC system. Installing dampers inside your ducts is the most common way to add zones to an existing system.

What should humidity be in the house with air conditioning?
The ideal level of humidity for air conditioning should hover around 40-60% - too low or high can result in uncomfortable side effects. Too much moisture can lead to problems such as damp walls, mold and mildew, while too little humidity can cause static electricity, dry skin, and crackling woodwork. Having the right balance is an important component of managing indoor air quality. With regular maintenance and adjustments of your air conditioner’s settings as needed, you’ll be able to keep your house at the optimal humidity level all year round.
If you have dealt with humidity issues for as long as your AC has been in place, it may be improperly sized for your home.
How often do you need to add Freon to a central air conditioning unit?
Refrigerant should not need to be added to an AC system unless you have a leak. It is a closed system. If you have a leak, it’s important it is repaired before your AC is recharged, otherwise you will be paying over and over for expensive Freon, or Puron if your unit is newer than 2010.
What brands of air conditioners do you service?
We repair virtually every type of unit from every major brand:
