Zone Control System
If your Gresham, OR home has areas or rooms that have inconsistent temperatures, you may benefit from zone control systems.
A zone control system offers you control over each room’s temperature with still only utilizing single-zone unitary HVAC equipment. The zone control system heats or cools the most used rooms while you’re using them. Working in conjunction with your thermostat(s), it efficiently provides the necessary heating or cooling energy each room needs at the time. It’s almost akin to an on-demand system. This seemingly magic feat is accomplished through zoning your home with thermostats, a control panel, and ductwork zone dampers. And you get to determine what constitutes your zone(s)––either an individual room, several rooms grouped together, or even an entire floor of your home.
The Mechanics of a Zone Control System
In the most basic of explanations, a zone control system connects to a central control panel via thermostats, opening and closing ductwork dampers to block or release hot or cold air. Each zone’s temperature is set with the corresponding thermostat. That’s all there is to it. The zone control system does everything else.

Zone Control System Benefits
Three of the biggest benefits you’ll experience from installing a zone control system are money savings, energy efficiency, and increased home comfort.
You’ll save money by not wasting energy heating and cooling areas that aren’t used much and not necessary to regularly heat and cool. You’ll realize increased energy efficiency for pretty much the same reason––you’ll only be heating and cooling areas that make sense to heat and cool more often, making the most of your HVAC system. You’ll notice an elevated comfort level in your home due to the areas of over- or underheating and over- or undercooling disappearing. The temperature will be where you want it exactly in the location where you want it.
