Zone Control Systems in Des Moines, IA

When you walk into your home at night, you flip the switch by the door so that every single light in the house turns on, right? That’s a trick question, of course, as no homeowner would settle for a lighting system that demands that every room be illuminated all at once, or no room be illuminated at all. Why, then, do you accept as fact that you must heat or cool your entire house to just one temperature? It doesn’t really make sense, and we can help you to overcome this obstacle in your house.

With the use of a zone control system you can take greater control than ever before over the way in which your heating system and air conditioning system works. For a zone control system to function properly, of course, it is necessary that one schedules his or her zone control system services with a skilled, trained professional. In this area, that is as simple as dialing our number. Leave your zone control system installation and subsequent services to the skilled professionals here at Schaal Plumbing, Heating and Cooling.

What Is a Zone Control System?

A zone control system is relatively simple in theory, though the operation of the system itself is rather complex. Essentially, a zone control system consists of three basic components: a central control panel, multiple thermostats and electronic dampers. The dampers are installed within the ductwork of a forced air HVAC system. They are wired to the control panel, as are the multiple thermostats. The thermostats are installed one per zone in the household. When you adjust the temperature at any given thermostat, the corresponding damper(s) will open or close as necessary, allowing you to adjust the temperature in that zone alone.

What Are the Benefits of Zone Controlled Heating and Cooling

The most obvious benefit of zone controlled heating and cooling is the freedom to maintain different temperatures in different areas of one’s home. This is important for a few reasons. First of all, you will no longer have to pay to heat or cool those areas or rooms in the house that are not often in use. Plus, there is the fact that not every member of your family will be comfortable at the same temperature. Because of this, you may need to maintain different temperatures in different areas just so that everyone living in your house can live comfortably. A zone control system grants you this ability.

We Install and Service Zone Control Systems

Don’t let the relative simplicity of the operation of a zone control system fool you. You absolutely must have your system professionally installed and serviced. A novice should never attempt to access your ductwork, nor should you attempt to install a thermostat anywhere in your home. There is a lot to consider in doing so, including the placement of the thermostats for accurate readings throughout the house. This is to make no mention of the wiring that the job demands. If you need a brand–new zone control system installed, or you have trouble with yours and require repairs, then ours is the number to call.
