Zone Control Systems in Whittier, CA
We are willing to bet that, when you enter your home, you don’t flip a single light switch to light up every fixture in your home. That would be incredibly inefficient, and lighting up your entire house all at once is usually completely unnecessary. Have you ever wondered why, then, you have to heat or cool your entire house to the same temperature throughout?
If you use a forced air heating and/or cooling system, like a heat pump, furnace, or central air conditioner, chances are that this is how you’ve been maintaining temperatures throughout your house. With a zone control system in Whittier, CA, though, you can take much greater control over your system. Greenleaf Heating & Cooling can design and install yours properly.
What Is a Zone Control System?
A zone control system is a mechanical system that is installed into your existing ducted HVAC system, and which allows you to maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home. A zone control system comprises 3 basic components. These are a central control panel, multiple thermostats for installation in the different temperature zones, and electronic dampers that are installed in the duct system.
The thermostats and the dampers are wired into the central control panel. When you adjust the thermostat in any given temperature zone, the appropriate dampers will open or close. This modulates the operation of the HVAC system, and allows you to heat or cool different areas in your home to different temperatures.
Benefits of Using Zone Control in Whittier, CA
A zone control system offers home and commercial property owners a number of different benefits. After reviewing these benefits, you may just decide that it is time to zone your property. If so, we are here to do the job right.
- Efficiency. This is a major benefit when talking about a zone control system. When you don’t have to heat or cool an entire property to just one temperature throughout, you can really cut back on your energy costs.
- Comfort. Even better than cutting back on your energy costs is doing so without having to sacrifice your comfort. Different people are comfortable at different temperatures. This means that you can keep everyone more comfortable, even as heating and cooling costs fall.
- Wear and tear. The harder that your HVAC system has to work throughout the year, then more wear and tear it is going to accrue. Using a zone control system takes some strain off of your heating and air conditioning equipment, which can help keep it up and running for longer.
