By having a zone control system installed in your home, you can greatly increase comfort while saving energy at the same time. These systems allow you to control temperatures in certain areas of your home without affecting others. Zone control systems are easy to operate once installed; however, it is important to make sure they are installed properly by professionals. We here at O’Brien Service Company have trained experts on zone control systems and would be happy to set you up to have a complimentary in-home evaluation. An evaluation would allow our technicians to see if a zone control system would benefit your home. Below is more information on how the systems work, the benefits, and the importance of having one properly installed.
What is a Zone Control System?
A zone control system divides your home into separate climate zones. Therefore, the size of your home will help determine how many zones are needed. Each zone will have its own thermostat; when the temperature is changed, it will only affect the area of your home in that one zone. These systems are then wired straight into your heating and cooling system, so the system knows right where the cool or warm air is needed.
What are the Benefits of Having a Zone Control System?
By having separate zones in your home, you can increase 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 when you can conserve energy and save on energy bills?
Also, certain rooms of your home may need more/less heating and cooling than others. For example, a sunroom. In the summer, it will need more cooling than other rooms because of the direct sunlight, and in the winter, it’ll need less heat than other rooms. It’s also common for people to be comfortable at different temperatures, so a zone control system can keep everyone in the home happy.
Installing a Zone Control System
Using a zone control system is simple and just involves learning how to use the thermostat. However, installing it is no easy feat, which is why it is important to hire a trained professional. Here at O’Brien Service Company, we install zone control systems into homes regularly, and can have it installed in no time! Our team members will also explain the operation of the thermostat, which means you can spend more time enjoying your system rather than studying the instruction manual. Feel free to call our office to schedule a complimentary in-home evaluation.

“I have an annual maintenance contract with O’Brien Service Company because my Trane HVAC unit is almost 11 years old. Each year a service technician comes out and checks my unit to be sure it is running properly and does any maintenance needed. Chance T. was here last week and arrived promptly and went under the house to perform maintenance checks. I was pleased with his efficiency and the fact that O’Brien will be here to help if there is a problem with my heating system this winter.” -Brian T. (Castle Hayne 28429)
