System Zoning by Treat’s Heating & Cooling
You wouldn’t control all the lights in your home with one switch, so why control the temperature throughout your home with just one thermostat? Different areas of your house have different temperature needs as well as family members.
Zoning allows you to control the temperature in every room of your home by placing a thermostat in every room and an automatic damper in the duct controlling airflow to specific rooms. Your entire home can’t be comfortable to everyone at all times. The reason is because most homes have just one thermostat located in a central hallway of the house. If that thermostat is located upstairs, how can you control your comfort downstairs?
Unoccupied rooms waste heating and cooling in rooms that are nobody is using. With zone control you can shut the heat or cool air off in the rooms that are not in use. This will save money on your energy costs as well.
A zone control panel is the central control that will communicate between thermostats, dampers and your heating and cooling equipment. It is typically mounted by your equipment and is the brain of the entire zoning application.
Thermostats are placed in each room or zone of the home. If it is too hot or cold, the thermostat will send a signal to the control panel to either bring more cool or warm air to that room or zone.
Dampers are placed in your ducts to control the airflow to certain rooms or zones in your home. The dampers are wired to a specific zone on the control panel, which is controlled by a specific thermostat in your home. Dampers automatically open and close depending on which thermostats are calling.
