The heating and cooling systems use a lot of energy to keep your home a comfortable temperature.

We can install a new zone control system in your home and provide ongoing maintenance services to keep it running like new for years to come.

Installing Zone Control Systems

A zone control system is a very simple setup that allows you to control where in your home receives heating and cooling. So, instead of your heating system or air conditioner turning on and producing huge volumes of conditioned air, the zone control system diverts air flow to where it is currently needed according to thermostats installed throughout your home.

So you can have a thermostat installed in your second floor bedrooms and another installed in your basement so that areas you don’t often occupy are not heated or cooled when they are empty. And because there are multiple thermostats throughout your home, those who do go into those spaces can turn the thermostat to whatever level they like and be comfortable without it affecting other people in the house.

Installation of such a system is easiest to perform during installation of a new heating or cooling system, but can be retrofitted onto an existing HVAC system as well, usually in a single visit. Controls are added to your ductwork and air handler and new thermostats are installed throughout your home for this purpose.

Zone Control System Maintenance and Repair

Once your new zone control system is installed, it is best to have a professional visit once a year and calibrate the thermostats and ensure it is working properly. This tune up can be done as part of your overall HVAC system maintenance or it can be done as a stand–alone service if you are concerned about the current operation of your thermostats.

If a problem does occur between service visits, call us for immediate repairs. We are available 24/7 for emergency repairs or can visit as soon as possible for a thorough inspection.
