Use air con zoning to lower energy bills.
With heating and cooling accounting for as much as 40% of home energy use in Australia, it is a great place to start when considering how you may be able to save on your energy bills.
If your air conditioning has zoning capabilities, use it to heat or cool only the specific areas of your home that you are using rather than the whole house. Set different temperature settings for each zone depending on how much heating or cooling is required in the area. Keep all doors closed to areas of the house not being used to prevent unwanted warm or cool air spreading.
Zoning can also prevent the spread of allergens throughout the house and reduces the wear and tear on your system.
