Do some areas of your home stay warmer or colder even as you adjust the temperature?

If you have a large home in Fort Collins or a home with multiple stories and you are not using more than one thermostat you most likely have uneven distribution of your heating or cooling.

A zone control system gives you control over the temperature in each room in your house. It will cool or warm the rooms you use the most at the time that you use them. It works with your thermostat to only provide the necessary heating or cooling energy that each room in your home needs at the time.

How Does It Work?

A zone controlled system uses a control panel to open and shut dampers that are distributed throughout your ductwork, thus blocking or releasing hot or cold air. You set the temperature for each zone via the thermostat and the zone control system does the rest of the work for you.

What is a Zone?

A zone can be anything you want it to be, an individual room, a group of rooms or a whole floor of your home.

How do I know if I need a zone system?

If your Fort Collins home has:

  • More than one level
  • A rambling floor plan that extends far beyond your main living space
  • Built over a concrete slab
  • Large glass windows
  • Finished rooms in the attic or basement or rooms over the garage
  • Large open areas

The two main benefits of installing this kind of system are energy efficiency and money saving and thus increased home comfort.

Your programable thermostats can monitor the heating or cooling in the home so that only the necessary energy is being used when no one is at home, or people are only using certain rooms at certain times of the day. This can save you up to 30% on your annual heating costs. It also increases your home comfort, you wont have those cold or hot spots in your home any longer.
