How Does Zone Controlled Heating Work?

Because we have relatively mild winter weather in our area, some homeowners are lulled into a false sense of security regarding the condition and operational quality of their home heating systems. Make no mistake about the fact that you will need a great heater installed in your home, even if it doesn’t see quite as much action as your air conditioner does. Even so, because we use our heaters so much less than our air conditioners, you may want to tweak yours in order to ensure that you are able to regulate its operation with the precision and success that you desire. That is why you may want to consider the use of a zone control system in Fresno, CA. Contact Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning for more details.

What Is a Zone Control System?

A zone control system is a collection of components that essentially allows you to use your forced air heating system in order to heat only those areas of your home that you want, and only as much as you want. The system comprises a few different items, including electronic dampers, which are installed into one’s ductwork, multiple thermostats, and a central control panel. You adjust the thermostat in any given area, or zone, of your home, and the corresponding damper(s) will either open or close in order to allow for more or less heat distribution into that area.

Benefits of Zone Controlled Heating

Zone controlled heating can benefit you in a few ways. First of all, it helps you to cut down on energy costs while also keeping your home more comfortable. If you want to heat your kids’ bedrooms at night, without sweltering on a mild evening as you host company downstairs, you can heat just those areas. This type of system also helps to take some strain off of your HVAC system at large, which in turn can help to protect its operational condition. Just remember that your zone control system must be expertly installed and serviced by a trained professional.
