How Zone Control Systems Can Save You Money

zone control systems

Everyone likes saving money, especially when it comes to household expenses. One great way to do this is by using a zone control system installed by Doornbos Heating & Air Conditioning. They can make your home more comfortable and efficient. Plus, they can help you save money on your energy bills.

Doornbos Heating & Air Conditioning is a respected household name among the residents of the Chicago area. We have helped countless home and business owners achieve maximum indoor comfort since 1927. Sometimes the best solution for ultimate comfort is to choose a zoned control system.

What Are Zone Control Systems?

Understanding Zone Control Systems

Zone control systems are special setups for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. They divide your home into different areas or “zones.” Each zone can be heated or cooled separately. This means you don’t have to heat or cool your entire house at once. Instead, you can focus on the areas you use the most.

How They Work

Zone control systems use dampers in the ductwork. These dampers control the airflow to different parts of your home. There is also a thermostat in each zone. This thermostat lets you set the temperature for that specific area. If you want your bedroom cooler than your living room, you can easily adjust it. The system will direct more cool air to your bedroom and less to the living room.

Benefits of Zone Control Systems

Energy Efficiency

One of the biggest benefits is energy efficiency. Heating or cooling your entire house at once uses a lot of energy. But with a zone control system, you only use energy where you need it. This reduces waste and can lower your energy bills, keeping more of your hard earned money in your wallet.

Cost Savings

By using less energy, you can save a lot of money. They can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 30%. Over time, these savings add up. The money you save can be used for other things, like family vacations or home improvements.

Increased Comfort

Zone control systems also make your home more comfortable. Have you ever noticed that some rooms are too hot while others are too cold? With zone control systems, you can keep every room at the perfect temperature. This makes your home more pleasant for everyone.

Longer HVAC Lifespan

When your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard, it lasts longer. By only heating or cooling certain zones, your system gets less wear and tear. This means fewer repairs and a longer lifespan for your HVAC system. This can save you even more money in the long run.

Installing Zone Control Systems

Professional Installation

It’s important to have a professional install your zone control system. The skilled and highly trained technicians at Doornbos know how to set up the dampers and thermostats correctly. A professional installation ensures that your system works efficiently and effectively.

Cost of Installation

The cost of installing one can vary. It depends on the size of your home and the number of zones you want. While there is an upfront cost, the energy savings can quickly make up for it. Plus, many utility companies offer rebates or incentives for installing energy-efficient systems. Call the professionals at Doornbos to learn about possible incentives and our easy finance options with approved credit.

Maintaining Your System

Regular Maintenance

Like any HVAC system, zone control systems need regular maintenance. This includes changing filters, checking the dampers, and ensuring the thermostats are working properly. Regular maintenance keeps your system running smoothly and efficiently. Doornbos Heating & Cooling has a variety of maintenance plans to meet your needs and budget.

Professional Check-Ups

Having a professional check your system once a year each for heating and cooling is a good idea. A Doornbos technician can spot any potential problems and fix them before they become big issues, saving you money on repairs and keeping your system running longer.
