How Zone Control Helps Your Heating

Central heating systems may see widespread popularity, but that doesn’t mean that they’re perfect. They are normally only capable of heating all or none of the house, nothing in-between. They are slaved to a single thermostat, which is only capable of monitoring the temperature in the room in which it is located. Finally, they’re simply inefficient, wasting energy on heating areas that are either already at a good temperature or are completely unoccupied. It is these issues that prompted the invention of zone control. Let’s examine what zone control is, and how it can help improve your heating system.

Zone Control

Zone control works by splitting your home’s ductwork into smaller zones, one for each room. It does this through the installation of dampers in the ductwork leading to each room. Each damper is connected to a thermostat, which is installed in the corresponding room. When the temperature provokes the thermostat to turn on the heating, it also opens the damper to that room to let the heat in. The other thermostats will keep their dampers closed unless their rooms are also in need of heat.

Benefits

Zone control solves each of the major problems with central heating systems. It involved the installation of multiple thermostats, ensuring that the whole house is not affected by a single thermostat that can only monitor one small area. This eliminates the hot and cold spots inherent to normal heating systems.

Zone control also prevents energy from being wasted on areas that don’t need it. If everyone in your house is occupying only one or two rooms, there is no reason to heat the rest of the house. Zone control funnels all of that heat to those one or two rooms. This means the heater doesn’t have to work as long before reaching the target temperature, which means that you save money.

If you have a central heating system, you should seriously consider installing a zone control system. It provides a myriad of benefits, with no real downside.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
