It may sound far-fetched to have complete temperature control over separate rooms or areas in your home simultaneously, but with a zone control system, it’s easily attainable. No more continuous thermostat adjustments in the throes of our Texas summer to find a happy balance between the freezer-cold rooms and those barely cool.
Our Comfort Specialists can configure your heating and cooling system to give you consistent, reliable heating and cooling at any time. Here at KCA SERVICES, we are dedicated to designing and implementing custom systems for you. We want you to experience the highest level of home comfort possible here in the San Antonio and Boerne area.
What Is It?
A zone control system is a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) method of individually heating and cooling different areas of your home utilizing only one HVAC system. You can maximize your home’s comfort and efficiency by specifying different temperatures in different spaces, or zones, in your house.
Depending on how you customize your zones, you can achieve separate temperatures concurrently in your home. This means no more hot areas when you are cooling your home or freezing rooms while your thermostat is set for higher temperatures.
A zone control system is created with a thermostat(s), a central control panel, and zone dampers for your home’s ductwork. Our professionals install various dampers throughout your air ducts, redistributing your home’s airflow by way of opening and shutting the dampers via each zone thermostat.
Various factors influence the uneven indoor air temperatures in your home—large windows, high ceilings, appliances, cooking, shade trees. Zone control systems address these problems by allowing you to individually adjust each zone.
What Is a Zone?
A zone can be any area of your home you and our Comfort Specialists design it to be. You could designate one room, several rooms, or an entire floor of your home as a zone. It’s completely up to you.
How Can You Tell If You Need One?
Your best way of determining if a zone control system is right for your home is to schedule an evaluation with one of our Comfort Specialists. We will conduct an honest and thorough assessment of whether this system can help you, as we would never try to sell you anything not right for you or you don’t need it.
To give you an idea if your home could benefit from a zone control system, if you have one or more of the following conditions in your home, your home could most likely benefit:
- Large glass windows
- High or cathedral ceilings
- More than one level or story
- Large open areas
- A rambling floor plan, extending beyond your main living area
- A concrete-slab foundation
- Finished rooms in the attic or basement, or rooms over your garage
How Can It Help You?
The primary advantage of a zone control system in your home is increased home comfort. With precise temperature control, wherever you are in your home, you can enjoy the ultimate in comfort.
This level of comfort delivers additional benefits to you as well. The two largest are energy efficiency and cost savings.
When you only heat and cool the specific areas of your home as needed, you are utilizing your HVAC most efficiently. Consequently, you are saving on energy, since you are not wasting heating or cooling where it’s not needed.
If you further explore energy efficiency by pairing your zone control system with a programmable or smart thermostat, you can achieve the highest energy efficiency possible by eliminating unnecessary energy waste. Saving on energy keeps money in your pocket.
