Zone Control Systems in Ashburn, VA

Central heating and air conditioning systems are by far the most popular in the HVAC market. They’re affordable, effective, and a good one-size-fits-all solution for many home situations. However, they are not perfect systems. One of the issues with central heating and air conditioning is that those systems cannot modulate their output for different regions of the house. This may not seem like a big deal, but it can have drastic effects on how comfortable the home is.

Differences in insulation between rooms can make them warm up or cool off faster than other parts of the house. A one-size-fits-all application of climate control can generate hot and cold spots throughout the house because of this. Centralized air conditioning and heating systems also waste a lot of energy on empty rooms. Fortunately, there is a way to fix these problems. AllTech Services, Inc. offers a full range of zone control services throughout Ashburn, VA. Call today to schedule an appointment.

What is a Zone Control System?

A zone control system is a series of dampers, essentially large valves, which are installed throughout the ducts in the home. Each damper has its own thermostat, which is installed in the nearest room. The dampers are all closed by default, sealing off the home’s ducts. When one of those thermostats detects a need for heating or cooling, it opens the damper and activates the appropriate system. This essentially splits the home up into different zones, each of which can receive different levels of output depending on their needs. Zone control systems will differ slightly in construction, based on the individual homes into which they are being installed.

The Advantages of Zone Control

Zone control solves the biggest problem of centralized forced air climate control systems. By splitting the ducts into a series of zones, your zone control system can allow your climate control systems to only send output to areas that require it. No more wasting energy on rooms that don’t need it, whether they’re empty or just insulated differently. You’ll be amazed at how much money you’ll save on an annual basis after installing a zone control system. Your home will also be quite a bit more comfortable than if you simply stuck with open ducts. Zone control is the way to go if you have centralized forced air systems.
