Zone Control Systems
You’re probably used to controlling the temperature in your house the old fashioned way. You set the thermostat and let your heating or cooling system go to work. While this is effective and can make it so that you’re comfortable no matter where you go in the house, it’s not the only option. It’s also not likely the most energy efficient way to go about it. DB Heating & Cooling offers Bergen County area customers a variety of zone control products that can maximize both home comfort and energy efficiency.
Convenience and Portability Combined
Say, for example, that you were using space heaters to heat your home instead of central heating system. In that case, you could set them up in multiple different areas of your home and set them each to different temperatures. After all, some areas are used less and there’s really no reason to heat or cool them if you don’t have to.
But with a single thermostat controlling your heating and air conditioning system, you don’t have a choice. This may be easier because you don’t have to think about it, but particularly if you have a big house, you’re likely paying a lot more in energy costs each month than you need to.
For instance, consider the temperature you like your bedroom to be at night when you’re sleeping. With a single thermostat connected to your heating or cooling system, you can only have your bedroom that temperature if you have the whole house that temperature as well.
Similarly, you might want to keep it a bit cooler in the kitchen than in the rest of the house because of the heat you automatically generate when you’re cooking. It doesn’t need to be as warm in there for you to be comfortable as it does in the living room, but you may not have a choice about what temperature will be reached where. Plus, when your kitchen is cooler, your refrigerator won’t have to work as hard to keep your food cold, which saves you a little extra money as well.
The Difference of Zone Control
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to control these different areas of your home separately? Actually, when you have a zone control system added to your home heating and cooling system you can. These zone control systems are compatible with just about any forced air central heating and cooling system, and they give you a phenomenal amount of control that’s both efficient and convenient.
With a state of the art zone control system in place, you can decide which areas of your home to keep warmer or cooler than others. You can usually even set these different zones to heat up or cool down at different times of day, so that you’re really not wasting any energy keeping their temperature constant when there’s no one using any particular area of the home.
Most zone control systems can support between two and six different zones within your home, giving you lots of flexibility even if your house is fairly large. It’s pretty common for different people in a household to feel heat and cold differently as well, and with a zone control system, you can keep everyone happy in their own particular corner of the house.
Energy Savings Through Zoning
While adding a zone control system to your central heating and AC system will cost a bit extra, it will likely save you quite a bit of money in the long run. The energy savings you’ll generate by not having to heat or cool your entire house at once will quickly offset the cost of installation and bring you consistently lower heating and cooling bills over time.
Here at DB Heating & Cooling, we offer a variety of high quality zone control systems designed to match up with our Bergen County, NJ area customers’ existing heating and cooling systems, but they can also be added as part of new installation.
