Zoning Systems and your Power Bill: How Churches Can Save Money

Whether your congregation is large or small, the cost of utilities is a common concern shared among churches of all sizes. Depending on the size of your church, your electric bill may be your highest expense, and your church may be looking for a way to cut your energy and increase savings.  If your church is searching for ways to cut costs, you may want to consider zoning your HVAC. Zoning can help your church control where energy is best spent, and help you save up to 40% on your power bill. With that kind of savings, your system may even pay for itself.

What Is Zoning?

Zoning your HVAC is a method of dividing up, or zoning, your building into different temperature areas. These rooms or zones can be controlled individually with their own thermostat, or as a whole with the use of a smart thermostat. A zoned system lets you control where your energy is spent, rather than wasted.

How Can You Save in Alabama?

Are there spaces in your church that go practically unused throughout the week? You may be wasting precious energy on keeping these unused spaces warm or cool. Zoning allows you to divide your church into the zones that make the most since for you. Consider how often the space is used, when it is used, who uses it or what it is used for, etc. Thinking about where your heating and cooling is best spent will help you save.

Is Zoning Right For Your Southern Church?

If your church has multiple rooms that are only used a few hours a day, or even just a few days a week, zoning is definitely something to consider. What is the sense in heating or cooling an unoccupied room?

Is your church lined with beautiful stained glass windows? These rooms will often be at a temperature imbalance to the rest of your church. Temperature fluctuations in these rooms shouldn’t dictate the temperature throughout the rest of the church. Cut your power bill and invest your church’s savings somewhere better.
