Zone Control Systems in Chicago, IL

Have you ever been running your heating or cooling system, only to wonder why it is that you must heat and cool your entire home to one set temperature throughout? After all, it is unlikely that your home's inhabitants are occupying every room at any given time, right? Why, then, should you have to heat and cool your entire house to one temperature, rather than maintaining different temperatures throughout based on the specific needs of any given area? The answer is that you actually don't have to.

When you use a zone control system in Chicago, IL, you can take greater control than ever before over the way in which you both heat and cool your home. There are many benefits that you'll enjoy as a direct result of this ability. Just remember that you are only going to get the best performance possible from your zone control system if you schedule your zone control system installation and services with trained professionals. Call upon the pros here at Eck Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to guarantee that this is the case.

How Does Zone Heating and Cooling Work?

A zone control system comprises a few basic components: thermostats, electronic dampers, and a central control panel. The dampers are installed into the ductwork of your HVAC system, and are wired into the control panel. The thermostats are installed throughout the house, with one in each designated temperature zone, and are also wired into the control panel. When you adjust the temperature at any given thermostat, the dampers will respond as necessary, allowing for more or less conditioned air to flow into that zone. That way, you can maintain different temperatures throughout different areas of your house.

Why Use a Zone Control System?

The ability to maintain different temperatures throughout different areas of the home is beneficial in a few ways. To start with, keep in mind the fact that not everyone in your house is going to be comfortable at the same temperature. By using a zone control system, you give different residents the ability to enjoy the temperature of their own choosing in different areas. Plus, because you won’t be forced to heat and cool areas of your home that really don’t need it, you can cut down on your heating and cooling costs. That way, you can actually spend less money to live in greater comfort.
