By having a zone control system installed in your home you can greatly increase the comfort while saving energy at the same time. It enables you to control temperatures in certain areas of your home, without affecting others. Zone control systems are easy to operate once installed, but it is important to make sure they are installed properly by professionals. We here at O’Brien Service Company have become experts on zone control systems, and would be happy to set you up to have a complimentary in home evaluation to see if a zone control system would benefit your home. Below is more information on how they work, the benefits, and the importance of having it properly installed.
What is a Zone Control System?
A zone control system divides your home into separate climate zones. The size of your home will help determine how many zones are needed. Each zone will have its own thermostat, so when the temperature is changed it will only affect the area of your home in that one zone. These systems are wired straight into your heating and cooling system, so it knows where the cool or warm air is needed.
What are some Benefits of Having a Zone Control System?
By having separate zones in your home, you can increase the comfort and save energy. Let’s say it is time to go to bed and you have a zone control system. You can either cool your bedroom in the summer or heat it in the winter, without the rest of your empty home being cooled or heated at the same strength. Basically why cool or heat rooms that are not being used, it is just a waste of energy! Also certain rooms of your home may need more/less heating and cooling than others. For example a sun room. In the summer it needs more cooling than other rooms because it gets warmer easier, and in the winter it’ll need less heat than other rooms. Also it’s common for people to be comfortable at different temperatures, so a zone control system can keep everyone in the happy.
