Customize Your Cooling with a Zone Control System

Temperatures are finally moving up instead of down, and if you haven’t turned on your home’s AC yet, you will soon enough. Then comes the battle: the endless fight over the right temperature. We’ve all been there, with someone turning the temperature up while another one turns it down. But if you have a zone control system, that battle no longer exists. Why? Because when your home is divided into different temperature zones that all operate independently from one another, you no longer have to engage in the Battle of the Thermostat. As you may suspect, professional installation is the key to attaining all the benefits a zone control system has to offer you, and the experts at Boehmer Heating & Cooling are here to help. Call us today, and let us show you what a zone control system can do for you and your home in Pittsburgh, PA.

What Is It?

A zone control system consists of a series of motorized dampers that are installed into your home’s supply ductwork once you and your technician designate the zones. Each zone is equipped with a thermostat, and the dampers and thermostats are both connected to a main control panel. This control panel acts as the go-between, opening and closing the dampers as needed to maintain the temperature set in each zone.

How Does Zone Control Customize Cooling?

As we mentioned above, before installation occurs, you will work directly with your technician to outline the zones for your home. Zones can be individual rooms, a group of rooms or a floor of your home – the decision is up to you. Each zone can be set to its own temperature, allowing you and your family to customized cooling (and heating) throughout your house. One of the best aspects of a zone control system is that you can turn off cooling to an area, which you can’t do with plain ductwork.

If you are done fighting over the single thermostat in your home, give the specialists at Boehmer Heating & Cooling a call today and schedule an appointment today for a zone control system.
