Zone Control Systems
Zoned Control Systems in O’Fallon, IL
Relying on a central HVAC system provides even temperatures across an entire home or business. However, this can cause comfort issues, as not everyone and every space have the same needs. That’s where zoned control HVAC systems can help.
At BEL-O Cooling & Heating, we offer zoned controlled systems to set temperatures differently for individual sections, rooms, or “zones” of your home. This way, you’re not forced to heat or cool your entire house to the same temperature.
Common Problems with Traditional Heating and Cooling Systems
They Can’t Always Accommodate Everyone’s Temperature Needs
Traditional systems can create hot and cold spots that don’t cater to the temperature needs of everyone. Their outdated mechanisms do not allow them to provide different heating and cooling levels around the house. This results in the entire household having one specific temperature all around.
When it comes to traditional HVAC systems, thermostat malfunction is common. If your HVAC system is short cycling or your home feels warmer than usual, it’s usually the fault of your thermostat. This can be the cause of corrosion build-up, loose screws, or dead batteries.
Mechanical Wear and Tear
An HVAC unit relies on a number of mechanical components to work. Traditional systems are not typically built with modern features and so can experience general wear and tear quicker than newer versions.
How Does a Zoned HVAC System Work?
Zoned control HVAC systems use dampers that are installed in the duct unit to control the temperature in various areas of a home. Each zone has its own thermostat to control the temperature. Multiple dampers can be controlled at the same time for a single zone if more than one duct serves a single room.
The next component to zoned systems is thermostats. The existing thermostat of your home can be used as a zone thermostat. What this means is as the zones get divided, they use their own individual thermostats to control the cooling, heating, and fan operation for their zone.
These thermostats are wired into the central control panel, which is connected to the thermostats of the HVAC unit. Instead of using one thermostat to cool and heat a room, the panel allows the system to be controlled by multiple thermostats.

What Are the Benefits of Installing a Zoned Heating and Cooling System?
Controls Each Room or Area of a Home Separately
Zoned control HVAC systems have separate thermostats that can cater to individual rooms. This means that those who prefer the temperatures warmer can set their thermostat higher in a different room than those who prefer it lower.
Eliminates Hot and Cold Spots in Homes
If your kitchen is naturally cooler than your living room, zoned control HVAC systems can override this problem. They eliminate hot and cold spots by targeting areas that are cooler/warmer than others and bringing them up to their desired temperature.
Cuts Energy Costs by Not Heating or Cooling Rooms That Are Rarely Used
Zoned control HVAC systems can increase energy efficiency by setting rooms that aren’t used as frequently to their own zones. This lets you directly control the temperature and keep heating and cooling to a minimum in areas that don’t require it. You’ll be able to manage the heating levels in summer and winter, which will reduce your energy use and save you electricity and money over time.
Less Wear and Tear on Your HVAC System
Because the system won’t constantly heat or cool the entire house, it will suffer less wear and tear over the years. It won’t have to work as hard because you can set different zones to be inactive and only heat/cool the spaces you spend the most time in.
Zoned systems work quietly in the background and channel cool and warm air to various zones when needed. They do this by only directing heated or conditioned air where it is wanted at certain times, unlike traditional units that blast the heated or conditioned air through the entire home or company building.
