Reduce Energy Usage with a Zoned Heating and Cooling System
We install and repair zone control systems in the Wichita area. Estimates are free and we provide 24/7 service.
Zone control systems allow you to independently control the temperature in different rooms or groups of rooms (zones) in your home or business. This control means you don’t have to heat or cool rooms that you don’t use as often. This also allows you to adjust the airflow to rooms that may be much hotter or cooler that other areas, for example a room with many sun exposed windows could be much warmer that other areas in your home.
Zone control systems don’t change the efficiency of your HVAC system, but the do use the system’s air more efficiently, which can reduce energy bills, and increase comfort.
A network of thermostats are used to monitor and control the temperature of each zone. These thermostats use a control panel to adjust dampers in your duct work that control the air flow to each zone.
Our technicians will work with you to determine the optimal number of zones and thermostat placement that will be most effective for your property.
We can install these systems in existing homes, or for new construction projects.
Signs You Need a Zone Control System
While zone control systems are typically an add-on to most heating and cooling systems, there are beneficial for almost home or business. If you have inconsistent temperatures throught yout home, or if you have any of the following situations, zone control may be particularly valuable:
- Large rooms that are never used
- Unfinished rooms or areas
- Areas that get a lot of sun compared to other areas
- Large windows in some areas
- A large or multi-story home
- Very large open rooms and smaller rooms
There are many factors affecting the indoor temperature in your home, such as appliances, higher or cathedral ceilings, shading, wind chill, and cooking. Zoning solves these problems by allowing each zone’s thermostat to individually adjust to the desired heating or cooling level.
A zone control heating and cooling system used with a programmable thermostat give you a huge amount of control over the comfort in your home. By channeling airflow to only the areas that need it, and setting heating and cooling schedules, you’ll reduce your energy usage, lower utility bills, and more efficiently utilize your HVAC system.
