Zone Control Systems
Some like it hot! Others, not so much.
Our licensed specialists can install a zone control system that allows you to simultaneously control temperatures in different parts of your home with just one heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
You decide which rooms need warm or cool air. By directing the airflow to specific areas, you save energy, which lowers your utility bills and reduces your home’s carbon footprint. Plus, everyone in the home gets to choose their temperature preference.
What Is a Zone Control System?
New Jersey homes with concrete slab foundations, multiple stories, high ceilings, large windows, or finished rooms in the attic or basement are good candidates for a zone control system—also known as zoning.
Whatever you decide, you can count on Comfort Now to help you find the right HVAC company to work with on your next home project.
How does zoning work? Our NATE-certified specialists will place dampers in the ductwork that distributes hot or cold air throughout your home. You decide how many zones you want to create: you can zone a single room, multiple rooms, or an entire floor of your home.
Each zone has a thermostat connected to a central control panel. When you adjust the thermostats in each zone, the control panel opens or closes dampers to distribute hot or cold air where needed.
You might be wondering if you can achieve the same results by adjusting the vents in a room—the answer is no!
Those adjustable slats over air vents are designed to direct the airflow into a room, not block it entirely. Merely closing or partially opening a vent restricts the amount of air that exits the ductwork—but it does not cause an air conditioner or furnace to produce less cold or hot air.
By comparison, a zone control system not only redistributes airflow by operating dampers but also controls your HVAC system, telling it when to run and when to shut down. Doing so eliminates unnecessary energy expenses.
Are you remodeling or adding new living space to your Linwood home? You may want to go ductless.
A ductless mini split combines outdoor heat pumps or air conditioner with an indoor air handler. The air handler disperses the hot or cold air from the outdoor condenser unit. You can add multiple air handlers around your home, each with a separate thermostat, to create a zone control system.
Ductless systems create zoning without the need to install dampers in your air ducts. Not only is this system easier to set up, but you also enjoy improved indoor air quality. Ductless systems tend to stir up very little dust and other allergens.
Zone Control Installation
This is not a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) project since it involves working with electricity, ductwork, and other components. With a more involved job like this one, it pays to work with a professional company to avoid installation mistakes that could come back to haunt you.
Installing smart thermostats adds to your savings. Programmable thermostats have WiFi features allowing you to remotely monitor and adjust temperatures when no one is at home—or when people are only using certain rooms at certain times of the day.
