Home Zoning Systems
American Weathermakers can divide your home’s ductwork system into specific zones so you can heat or cool rooms at designated times and save on energy costs – just like turning off the lights when not in use. We use Arzel ® Zoning Technology to eliminate comfort heating and cooling problems caused by second-floor rooms, finished basements, sun rooms or other glassed-in spaces, high ceilings, fire places, excessive track lighting, spa equipment or other sources of potential problems.
Right now, your entire home is controlled by one thermostat in one location in your home. However, the design and lifestyle patterns of your home create many temperature differences a single thermostat just cannot serve. Multiple thermostats, however, can give you the control you need. Zoning creates areas or “distinct comfort zones” which all have their own, individual thermostat. If you have four zones, you have four thermostats. With separate thermostats, each comfort zone signals the heating and cooling systems independently. This eliminates the over-conditioning of one area of your home to make another comfortable.
Your home’s design creates irregular heating and cooling due to the amount of exposure to the sun. Other factors that may influence the temperature in your home include the existence of conditioned space below or adjacent to the room, the performance of the insulation and how the room is used.
In addition, your family members may each have their own temperature preferences or needs. For instance, the new baby’s room may need to be warmer as her body reacts differently to temperature than her parents in the master bedroom. Typically, your family does not agree on which temperature is preferred, leaving some uncomfortably hot or cold.
The Arzel® Zoning System solves the issues associated with a single thermostat by putting the control where it’s needed, when it’s wanted. Zoning provides the comfort and control you expect in your home, while using less energy to operate your heating and cooling equipment. Put yourself in charge of your comfort!
