One of the biggest disadvantages associated with central forced-air heaters is their inability to modulate their output for different areas of the house. Since each room in a home tends to be insulated slightly differently, central heating often creates hot and cold spots in rooms that heat up or cool off faster than others. This leads to a lot of wasted energy, as well as a fair bit of discomfort for those in the home. Fortunately, there’s a fairly easy way to fix this issue. Read on to find out more about zone control.
What Zone Control Is
A zone control system is made up of a series of dampers, which are installed throughout the home’s ductwork. These dampers are like large valves, which can open and close to direct the flow of air through the house. The dampers split the home into a series of zones, with each zone having a corresponding thermostat. When the thermostat detects a need for heat, it opens only the dampers that allow air to flow into that zone and activates the heating system.
Advantages of Zone Control
Zone control is the solution to the one-size-fits-all problem that all central forced-air heating systems have. With zone control, you can make sure that each part of your home receives only the heating that it needs. No more wasting energy on empty rooms, or heating rooms that have already reached the ideal temperature. A zone control system helps to make your heating system more efficient, and yourself more comfortable. Install a zone control system this winter, and you’ll be very surprised at how much your home heating system efficiency is improved.
