How a Zone Control System Benefits Your Heating System

It’s chilly here in Colorado, and you’ve probably started running your home heating system. Are you already hearing complaints about your thermostat setting? Are you struggling to maintain energy efficiency while making everyone comfortable? There’s a great solution for both of these problems: a zone control system. With a zone control system, you are no longer fighting the battle of thermostat while trying to maintain your energy efficiency. Zone control systems are complex to install, so it’s important to hire a trained professional. Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning has been servicing customers since 1934, so if you are looking to install zone control heating in Fort Collins, call us today!

How Does a Zone Control System Work?

With a zone control system, you divide your home into different zones. They can be individual rooms, a group of rooms, or an entire floor – the decision is yours. Once you’ve designated these zones with your technician, motorized dampers are installed into the supply vents of your ductwork and thermostats are installed in each zone. The dampers and thermostats are wired to a main control panel, which manages the opening and closing of the dampers to maintain the temperatures set in each zone.

How Can a Zone Control System Benefit My Heating?

There are a few ways a zone control system can benefit your heating:

  • Better energy efficiency – with a zone control system, you use only the heating you need. A zone control system allows you to shut off the heating to areas you don’t need it – you can’t do this with regular ductwork. Using only the heat that you need results in less operation of your system, which helps reduce your energy usage.
  • Less wear and tear – with a zone control system, your heating system will most likely run less, helping to prevent early wear-and-tear issues to your system.
  • Extends the life of your system – the amount of work your heating system has to do can be reduced with a zone control system; less work means less wear, which can help extend the life of the system.

Zone heating in Fort Collins allows you to customize your heating while improving your home’s energy efficiency.
