Zone Control Systems
The second floor of your Iowa home gets too hot in the summer, and your downstairs feels too cold from trying to cool the upstairs.
You need a zone control system.
You like one temperature, your spouse prefers a different setting. And your kids complain it’s too hot.
Zoning is the answer.
A zone control system—or zoning—is the perfect solution for larger homes with multiple floors or sprawling layouts. Perhaps you have several barely used rooms in your home. Who wants to heat an empty room?
With zoning, you create different temperature zones under the same roof, reducing your energy use and lowering utility bills. Homes with concrete slab foundations, large windows, high ceilings, or finished rooms in the attic or basement are good candidates for a zone control system.
Our certified, knowledgeable professionals at C and K can install a zone control system that enables you to control temperatures in different areas of your Ames home simultaneously with just the touch of a button.
How Does Zoning Work?
You decide the location and size of each zone with guidance from our professionals. You can define a zone as a room, several rooms, or even an entire floor in your multi-story home.
Whatever you decide, our team at C and K will help you achieve the ultimate comfort in your home that comes with a zone control system. Controlling the temperature in each zone means you will save energy, reduce your utility bills, and keep everyone in the family happy.
Say goodbye to hot and cold spots throughout your home. Say hello to a new level of comfort.
Zone Control Installation
Our heating and cooling specialists will install dampers in your ductwork and mount a control panel near your furnace. Thermostats are placed in each zone. Turn your second floor into one zone, your downstairs into a second zone, and the master bedroom into a third one.
When you adjust each thermostat, the control panel opens or closes dampers to distribute hot or cold air where it is needed. Set the thermostats in each zone, and relax. Plus, you can control the thermostats using your smartphone or tablet.
Opening and closing registers throughout your home will not create a zone control system. It does not cause your furnace or air conditioner to produce less hot or cold air. It can also contribute to leaky ductwork and low airflow.
By comparison, the zone control system not only redistributes airflow by operating dampers, but it also controls your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, telling it when to run and when to shut down. That eliminates unnecessary energy expenses.
Can I still create a zone control system if my home has no ductwork?
The answer is yes. Ductless mini split systems allow you to set up multiple air handlers throughout your home. Each air handler acts as a zone, complete with a thermostat. Anyone living in a large home with more than one floor will benefit from zoning.
