How Does a Zone Control System Help My Heating?

When you turn on your heating system, you expect to have full control over your indoor comfort. However, sometimes the natural process of heat exchange may get in the way. For homeowners with expansive floor plans, more than one level, or unique home designs, a standard furnace simply cannot distribute heat evenly to the entire home. Zone control can help you keep temperatures under control in any area of the home and keep your family members comfortable throughout the year.

Why You May Need Zone Control

In many homes, a single thermostat controls the temperature in every area. However, in larger homes, this system cannot possibly offer even temperatures. Heat naturally rises, so you may find that the upstairs rooms often feel warmer than downstairs. Or, large windows may make one area of the home feel cooler than the other areas.

Even if the temperatures in your house remain relatively stable, some of your family members may have different temperature preferences than others. If you’re sick of hearing family members argue over the thermostat setting, a zone control system may be the perfect solution.

How it Works

When you call an HVAC company to install your new zone control system, a technician will need access to the ductwork in your home. The technician installs dampers in each area of the ductwork for which you would like zone control. Each damper is connected to its own thermostat but can also be controlled by a master thermostat located in a central area.

When you set the temperature in a particular room or zone, the thermostat controls a damper that opens or closes to adjust the amount of airflow into the room. No longer will you have to deal with uneven temperatures throughout the home. And you won’t hear family members complain about being too cold or too hot in their own rooms. You can also use zone control to save a little money. If no one uses one area of the home throughout the day, shut off the heat in that zone only to save on your energy bills.

Cypress, CA Air Conditioning: Benefits of Air Conditioning Upgrades

Friday, May 24th, 2013

If you cannot count on an efficient, effective performance from your air conditioning system in California, you are going to be in for a long, uncomfortable summer. Luckily, the Cypress, CA air conditioning professionals at Command A/C are here to handle any air conditioning services that you may need. We have the AC upgrades that you need to enjoy a better performance from your air conditioning system this cooling season. Contact us today to learn more. Whatever issues you may have with your air conditioner, we have what it takes to help you make it through the hot summer months with the comfort that you deserve.

One of the most basic ways that you may choose to upgrade your air conditioning system is upgrade your thermostat. It is your thermostat, after all, that you use in order to control the rest of your air conditioning system. Of all the components that make up your AC system, your thermostat is by far the one that you have the most direct interaction with. Make sure that you have the thermostat most suited to your needs and AC usage habits.

If you still use and old manual thermostat, you should seriously consider upgrading to a digital model. Not only are digital displays easier to read that the old round models, but push button controls also make setting thermostats accurately even easier. If you really want to take advantage of your thermostat, you may want to have a programmable model installed. With a programmable thermostat you can create cooling programs based around your individual schedule.

A zone control system installation is another great way to improve the efficiency with which your air conditioning system operates. Zone control systems allow you to cool different areas of your home independently, meaning that you do not need to cool your entire house just to keep guests in the living room comfortable. Enjoy greater efficiency and greater comfort control at the same time.

For more information about how AC upgrades can benefit your home, contact the Cypress, CA air conditioning technicians at Command A/C. Your comfort is our top priority. Let us help you keep your cool this summer.
