The Benefits of Zone Control

Zone Control Systems give you increased efficiency. Adding a zone control system to your home adds many benefits and cost savings. A zone control system allows you to control your family’s home comfort by maintaining different temperatures in different areas of your home. Each zone has its own thermostat and temperature setting. This can eliminate the “hot” and “cold” spots in your home, while saving energy and money.

How does zone control work?

Zone control systems give you the ability to adjust the temperature for different parts of your home. Traditional systems use a thermostat that sets one fixed temperature for the whole house. Zone controls gives the homeowner ability to adjust each area of the home individually by using a series of dampers installed in the ductwork. These dampers can close off areas of your home and allow you to only heat or cool the parts of the home your family is using.

Benefits

Zone control can reduce the amount of energy your HVAC system uses. The zone control application can work in any type of home. This system will save energy and
money. When you divide your home in distinct zones, you make it possible to heat and cool only the rooms you are currently using. For example, you can increase the cooling in just the kitchen when cooking a meal. Zone control is an upgrade to your system. The money saved in heating and cooling costs will pay for itself.

Energy Efficiency

Zone control will increase energy efficiency and energy savings when used properly in your home. You can set the ideal temperature in the bedrooms to sleep at night and use the dampers to close off the other rooms you are not using. This will save money on your monthly electrical bills.

Importance of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Get peace of mind with regular air conditioner maintenance from Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning.

As spring approaches, it’s time to think about getting your HVAC system ready for the summer. It’s been months since most of us have used our air conditioner. Finding out the air conditioner in your home does not work during the first heat wave can be a big problem. Below are some of the important reasons why routine scheduled maintenance will help get your Air Conditioning system serviced and ready for summer.

Replacing the Air Filter

Forgetting to change the air filter can cause big problems for your HVAC system. When the air filter is clogged, it means that the air conditioner has to work harder to move air throughout your home. The harder your air conditioner has to work it could cause stress to your system and lead to costly breakdowns. There are many options to update your filters and improve your indoor air quality.

Unclogging the AC Drains

It’s easy to see the problems from clogged drains in the sinks and showers in your home. It is much harder to see the problems from a clogged AC drain.  Often by the time you see evidence of a clogged AC drain in your home it has led to damage. A professional HVAC technician will make sure the drain is clean and flowing smoothly.

Cleaning the Air Conditioning coils

Cleaning the condenser coils is an important part of maintenance. A qualified service technician will clean the dirt and debris from the coils and this will help your system operate more efficiently.

Checking the Thermostat

It’s a good idea to check the batteries, programming and operation of your thermostat each season. A thermostat problem can be a direct cause of a cooling issue.

Schedule a certified HVAC Professional

Be sure to schedule maintenance for your air conditioner with a professional and qualified service technician at Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning. Maintenance and tune up’s will increase the life of your equipment, find potential break downs and make sure your air conditioner runs efficiently so you are ready for the hot summer temperatures.
