Fall is here, and it’s time to make sure that your home is ready for heating season. Heating maintenance and the like is always a good idea, but it’s not the only thing you can do. If you have a centralized forced air heating system, one of the best things you can do is install a zone control system. Read on to find out more about zone control, and the benefits that it can offer you.
A zone control system is designed to give you more control over which parts of your home receive output from your climate control systems. It does this by splitting your home’s ducts up into different zones using dampers. These dampers open and close to control the flow of air through the ducts. Each zone has its own thermostat installed inside it, which allows it to operate separately from the rest of the house. When a thermostat requires heat, it opens the appropriate dampers and activates the heating system.
Normally, centralized forced air heating systems like furnaces have only two settings: on and off. They are unable to actually modulate how much heat each part of the home receives. This blanket method of heating creates problems for both comfort and energy efficiency. Certain rooms will receive too much heat or too little, creating hot and cold spots throughout the house. Empty rooms also receive heat that they don’t need, which wastes a lot of energy. By giving you more control over your system output, a zone control system eliminates both of these problems. Install a zone control system this fall, and make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
