Using Zone Heating for Increased Comfort and Energy Savings

Have you ever wanted to heat certain areas of your home more than others? Do you have rooms that tend to become too warm at certain times of day? There is a great upgrade available for heating systems that can help with these issues and more: a zone control system. By controlling the amount of heating (or cooling) in a designated zone, a zone control system helps to improve comfort while saving energy. Zone heating systems in Westwood can be complex, and require knowledge and expertise in order to install them properly; this is why it’s important to hire a professional. DB Heating & Cooling technicians have the training and expertise to upgrade any heating system, so call us today.

What Is a Zone Control System?

A zone control system consists of a series of motorized dampers that are installed into the supply ducts of your ductwork. These dampers control how air flows from the supply ducts into your living spaces. Zones are designated by you, and are created during the installation process. Examples of zones would be a grouping of frequently-used rooms or a floor of your home. The dampers are wired into a main control board. Each zone has its own thermostat, and these thermostats are connected to the control board. This allows the control board to automatically manage the dampers according to the temperature that is set in each zone.

What Are the Benefits of a Zone Control System?

There are several benefits of a zone control system worth considering:

  • Customized comfort – because each zone has its own thermostat, you can set different temperatures in different zones to maximize on your indoor comfort levels.
  • Energy efficiency – zone control systems allow you to use only that amount of heating you need. You can turn down or turn off the heat in areas of your home that are unused or unoccupied. This helps to save energy.
  • Less wear on your system – because a zone control system allows you to use only the amount of heating you need, your system runs less; this helps reduce overall wear and tear.
