We don’t talk about zone control systems enough, and we’re hoping to change that in the future. When homeowners are looking at ways to save money and maximize their heater’s power, they often only look at the heating unit itself and nowhere else. A zone control system can be installed in your ductwork, being a way to eliminate cold spots and create a more even heating effect through the entirety of your home. So, to help mitigate the tunnel vision of homeowners who focus solely on their heating unit, we’re going to talk about an exterior system that can help increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your heater.
If you’re in the market for a way to improve your heating in Savannah, GA then you came to the right place. A zone control system is an impressively advanced way to increase the output of your heating system without having to upgrade it entirely.
How Does Zone Control Work?
A zone control system is simple really, it’s a series of dampers that exist in your air duct system. Think of dampers like a metal plate that blocks off certain parts of your air ducts. While you might initially think of this as counterproductive since you want your air ducts to be open for the free-flow of air.
However, blocking off certain areas of your home that are already warm or that might be warmer than others (like your kitchen), allow for that heat to be siphoned to a place that usually contains cold spots! This actually allows for a more even heating process and you’ll be able to deal with rooms that are warmed more evenly than they would be without a series of dampers.
Zone Control Increases Efficiency
So, you might be asking yourself how this helps with your heater’s efficiency, right? Well, let’s take a look.
If you’re spending a lot of your time in a room that’s got cold spots, you’re most likely going to turn the thermostat up higher than it would normally be. That means your home is going to be heated even more unevenly and your heater is going to work much harder to heat a room that could be heated easier with zone control.
Even heating is the key to having an efficient heating system. Spending time in a cold room, constantly trying to have the thermostat match your comfort levels, means you’re going to be consuming more fuel to heat your home than you’d like. Invest in a zone control system for a more stable heating solution and increased efficiency.
The Perfect Solution for a Family
Homes with only one or two people living in it might still find a use for a zone control system, but these dampers really shine when there is a whole family living in a home. A zone control system allows for even comfort, and a more customized approach to exact temperature control in each individual room. Gone are the days of fighting over the thermostat, you can now heat each room to your exact comfort specifications!
