A zone control system is a great way to not only boost energy efficiency in your home, it can also lower your overall heating and cooling costs as well as provide improved comfort within the home. At A/C Designs Heating & Air Conditioning, zone control system installation is just one of the many services we offer.
Understanding Zone Heating and Cooling
A zone control system allows you to have control over the temperatures in various areas of your home. Each “zone” is maintained by a separate thermostat which controls a specific area, providing you with the ability to heat or cool the exact zone you are using.
Zone Control Systems utilize dampers which are placed inside the air ducts. They control airflow by opening and closing, depending on the temperature set on the thermostat in each zone.
Benefits of a Zone Control System
There are many benefits to having a zone control system installed in your home. Because a zone control system allows you to maintain different temperatures in different areas of the home, it can help cut back on your heating and cooling costs. Rather than paying to heat or cool your entire home at any given time, you can control the temperature of separate areas as needed without sacrificing comfort in the process.
Zone Control Systems also eliminate “hot” and “cold” spots within the home. For example, many two-story homes experience hotter temperatures upstairs because heat rises. To prevent this, a zone control is installed upstairs and downstairs. When downstairs reaches the optimal temperature, dampers shift to push more air upstairs until both levels are at the right temperature.
Another benefit is the overall comfort you will enjoy. If you, or a member of your family, run “hot” or “cold,” you can eliminate the constant battle of the thermostat by utilizing zone controls.
Zone heating and cooling systems are extremely versatile. They can be installed retroactively in just about any home with any configuration of ductwork or ventilation. If you’re looking for a way to cut back on your heating and cooling expenses and improve overall comfort, a zone control system may be a great solution for you.
