Zone Control Systems
There are many upgrades you can make to your home that will reduce the cost of your heating and cooling bills. You can install new insulation, upgrade your existing heating or cooling systems, or add high-efficiency air filtration systems to reduce indoor contaminants and increase your home’s indoor air quality without compromising airflow.
However, one method is both affordable and highly effective — and you can have it installed relatively easily. For homes in Des Moines, Johnston, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City, zone control system allows you to divide your home into distinct zones, where each zone has its own thermostat and can be monitored and maintained separately from the rest of your home. Schaal offers a full range of zone control system installation, maintenance and repair services, so give us a call or schedule online today to discuss your options.
The Benefits of a Zone Control System
There are many reasons why a zone control system in Des Moines, Johnston, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City is a good fit for your home:
- Zone Control systems save you money. Because zone control is a relatively inexpensive upgrade, the savings offered are significant.
- By breaking your home into several distinct zones, you make it possible to only heat or cool the areas of your home that you are currently in. Right now, for example, when you turn on your heating system, it distributes heat to every room with a vent, including the upstairs which is probably empty most of the day. Furthermore, with a zone control system, you can set up the upstairs as a single-zone, and turn off the heat in that location whenever you are not there.
- A zone control system is also a luxury. Imagine being in the kitchen, making dinner over a hot stove while having the heat on, turning an already hot kitchen into a “standing oven”. With a zone control system, you can separate active spaces from inactive spaces. So, places where people move around — like the kitchen — can be set to be cooler than places where they sit idle, reading or watching TV — like the living room.
Having a Zone Control System Installed
If you decide a zone control system is a good fit for your home, the installation process is relatively simple.
Your air handler will need a few minor upgrades and new thermostats will be installed for each of the zones in your home. To help extend the life of your system and protect your investment, our service professionals at Schaal Plumbing, Heating & Cooling will recommend regular preventative maintenance. During the preventative maintenance process, an expert HVAC specialist test the system and its various electronic components.
In all, zone control systems for homes and office buildings in Des Moines, Johnston, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City can be installed by Schaal in a single day, and the cost will be offset by your energy savings within a year or two. Sound too good to be true? Well, it isn’t!
