First Choice Air - Zone Control
Home Temperature Zoning Makes Perfect Sense
Home Temperature Zoning is simply the process of dividing your home into different zones, or areas, and then heating or cooling them as needed. It's the ideal way to eliminate hot and cold spots. Plus, zoning systems save energy by heating and cooling only the areas of your home that you're using.
Every Zone Gets a Thermostat
Every home has at least two zones - a living space and a sleeping space. You may also have areas such as a master bedroom or children's rooms that have separate comfort needs. We will work with you to determine the number of zones needed to maximize your family's comfort.
When we install a zoning system everything but the thermostats will be out of sight. A zone control board and zone dampers will be installed around your furnace and in your ductwork.
When a zone needs to be heated or cooled, the dampers automatically open to deliver conditioned air until your comfort needs are met. When heating or cooling is not needed, the dampers close to save energy and maximize comfort elsewhere.
Just program or set the thermostats for the temperature you want in each zone and your system will do the rest.
