Zone Control Systems in the Twin Cities Metro and Surrounding Areas
Zone control systems work with your current HVAC system to create "zones" or areas within the home that are heated or cooled with a separate thermostat. When you heat or cool an entire house at the same temperature, it can waste a lot of energy, whereas a zone control system will allow you to set temperatures according to the preferences of the occupants in each room or zone. In addition to saving energy and lowering your bills, a zone control system allows you to maintain a comfortable environment for everyone in the home no matter what their preferences are.
At Air Mechanical, we can handle everything from installing your zone control system to maintaining it so that it will continue to perform at optimal levels for many years. We offer only the best brands and quality products, and our friendly HVAC experts are happy to help you choose the right zone control system for your home. Contact us any time and ask to speak with one of our professional team members about installing a zone control system in your home.
Zone Control System Installation
One of the main advantages of installing a zone control system is that it can be integrated into your current HVAC system. Although they are typically used with forced air systems, they can be used with other home comfort systems as well. In a forced air system, dampers are installed in the ductwork, and a main panel is connected to the main unit to control the dampers. The dampers open when more heat or cool air is needed in a specific zone, and they close when an area doesn’t need as much air supply.
When you decide to install a zone control system, you will first need to choose how many zones you want, which will determine how many dampers and thermostats are needed. If you aren’t sure how many zones you should have, call one of our heating and cooling experts for advice. We can send someone to your home to help you make a decision, and we can also test your current system to see if it needs any improvements or repairs before the new installation.
Compared to heating or cooling an entire home, zone control systems can provide as much as 20% in energy savings. However, zone control is more effective if your home has proper insulation, particularly between the different zones. Call us any time if you have questions about the benefits of installing a zone control system in your home.
Zone Control System Thermostat
Since zone control systems supply heat or air to each individually, each zone is controlled by a separate thermostat. Depending on the type of system you are using, you will need to determine which type of thermostat to install in each area. Typically, it’s best to install wireless thermostats so that you have more flexibility when creating the different zones in your home. For even better energy savings, you can install wireless programmable thermostats to automatically adjust the temperatures in each zone according to your schedule and preferences. We offer top of the line thermostats to go with your new zone control system, so call today to learn more about how you can start saving energy!
