Zone Control Systems in Littleton, CO
Central heating and air conditioning changed this country for the better, as more and more homes have been built or renovated with ductwork that makes it easy to deliver cool or warm air throughout a home. That central thermostat in your hallway or living room is the brains behind it all, and it’s especially helpful when you have a programmable thermostat you can set ahead.
The central model of heating and cooling does have one pitfall, though. There is only one thermostat, and it is expected to read and adjust the temperature throughout the whole house. In larger homes, this often does not work out properly, and hot and cold spots abound. A zoning system for your Littleton, CO home could change all of that! Call Southwest Heating and Cooling to get started today.
Why Get a Zoning System?
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to adjust the temperature in any room of the home, without changing the temperature throughout the enitre house? Many an argument between family members has started because one person insisted on keeping the temperature higher or lower than another. A zone control system changes that.
With a thermostat in each room, family members can set temperatures to their individual preferences when in different areas.
In addition, zoning systems help to solve heating and cooling problems in large homes, where it’s tough to keep a uniform temperature throughout. If the thermostat detects that the temperature in one room is too warm, it will turn up the air to that room only, while the rest of the house remains at one temperature.
How a Zoning System Works
Zoning system installation takes quite some time and will require technicians to access your ductwork, but the results are worth it. A new damper must be put into each section of the ductwork that requires zoning. This damper opens to let more air in or closes off to keep air out. The damper is connected to a central control system so it can be operated with a master thermostat or an individual thermostat for that room or zone.
While we can service any make or model of HVAC system, we are proud to offer advanced zone control installations from Trane and Arzel. We pair these with highly efficient Trane air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps to create the ultimate in comfort (although we can connect one to an existing HVAC system as well).
