Benefits of Zone Control This Winter

Winter has arrived here in West Alabama. This means everyone is looking for ways to save money and energy while keeping their family warm. If you and your family are one of the millions using a centralized forced-air heating system, like a furnace, considering a zone control system could help you save money and energy this winter season.

What is zone control?

Essentially, zone control involves installing a series of valves called dampers throughout the ducts in your home. These dampers allow you to open or constrict the airflow moving between different regions of the ducts, your zones. You have the ability to control each zone with either a master thermostat of individual thermostats giving you more control over your home’s temperature.

What are the benefits of zone control?

  • Comfort

Here at Legacy Heating and Cooling, we strive to ensure that your home is comfortable all year long. Zone control gives you the opportunity to selectively heat certain regions of your home. This means if one family member prefers a higher temperature than another, they can heat their room without disturbing another family member’s comfort.

  • Energy Efficiency

One of the biggest advantages of zone heating is its energy efficiency which will save you money and help save the environment. Zone heating allows you to reduce energy consumption, consequently reducing the amount of money you’re paying per month on heating and utility bills.

  • Reduced Heating Difficulties

Certain homes have an architecture that poses challenges to your centralized forced-air heating system. Loft spaces, vaulted ceilings, basements, and floor to ceiling windows make heating your home evenly a great challenge.

However, with help from Legacy Heating and Cooling, and American Standard zone control system technology, you will be able to separate these regions of the house to cool them more efficiently. This will avoid putting unnecessary strain on the heating in other areas of your home.

  • Reduced repair needs

The reduced strain on your system is beneficial in homes with architectural challenges. In general, zone control heating allows your heater to not work as hard circulating warm air. Therefore, your heater will likely experience less wear and tear, reducing your likelihood of needing costly repairs and maintenance.

What does the zone control installation process look like? You’ll need professional installation of zone control.

Further, in order to receive all the wonderful benefits of zone control, your zone control system must be installed correctly. Installation can be pretty tricky for those with little experience, with risks of opening leaks in the ducts or disrupting your system’s airflow.

Luckily, our professional team at Legacy Heating and Cooling have the skills and expertise to properly install your new zone system into your existing ductwork. We have been trusted by the West Alabama community for over two decades and look forward to helping keep you and your family comfortable this winter.
