Imagine if every time you turned on a light switch, every electrical device in your home came on or if every time you went to wash your hands every faucet, shower, tub and toilet opened up. That would be crazy! So why is it that when you need heating in one room the entire house heats up? Now you can zone your heating and cooling so that you don’t have to heat or cool your entire home when you don’t need to.
Think about it. Why have a large home if you're only comfortable in part of it? Even though your home is your castle... it doesn't mean it has to be drafty—or heat and cool like one! If you're like most people, you tend to spend the majority of your time in the areas of your home where you are more comfortable. Wouldn't you get more pleasure, fulfillment and enjoyment out of your home if you could totally control your level of comfort in every part of it? Of course you would!
Our home zoning system is specially designed to allow your entire family to be comfortable, regardless of where they are in your home. Now you can divide your home’s ductwork into specific zones that can be controlled independently, whether heating or cooling. Imagine the bedrooms on one zone, the family room on another, and the kitchen on a third. Even better yet, you can finally control that hard to heat and cool addition for which you paid a fortune.
The reason that homeowners have to "put up" with poor temperature control in places like upstairs bedrooms, additions, and basements, is because we assume that we can't expect anything better. Well, I want to tell you, it isn't supposed to be that way. If you are uncomfortable in certain areas of your home, the people to blame are the builder who built the house, and the heating contractor who designed the system. These are the guys who decided for you, that your comfort was not important enough to spend the extra money needed to guarantee it in your home. You see, when a home is built, the dynamics of home construction are totally stacked against the future owner's comfort.
You have to realize that when a builder builds a home, they typically know the price it will sell for when it's done. Therefore, anywhere they can cut costs or corners is pure profit for them. Most builders know that when you move into a home, you're more concerned about the trim and colors of a room, than whether you will be comfortable enough to spend any time there to enjoy them. So, when it comes to cutting corners, putting in a heating & cooling system with consideration for the homeowner's future comfort is the first thing to go. Had the builder invested just a little bit more during construction, you wouldn't have any hot or cold areas in your home. You would be able to control the temperature in every area of your home through a process that has been around for years called forced air zoning.
Forced air zoning is a system that uses multiple thermostats, and automatic dampers in your home’s ductwork, to intelligently control the air flow to every register in the house. Like a traffic cop, it directs the heated or cooled air only to the areas that require it. Since one thermostat is not "smart" enough to adequately sense your comfort needs everywhere throughout your house, a zoning system puts a thermostat in all the different areas of your home to guide the air exactly where it needs to be, and stop it from going where it is no longer needed.
A zoned system is far superior to having one (or even two) furnaces and air conditioners. It is not only more energy efficient, it also gives you the ability to have as many controlled areas as your home requires to guarantee absolute comfort. Wouldn't it be wonderful on a hot muggy night to just set a thermostat in your bedroom to 73 degrees and get a sound sleep—instead of moving to the downstairs couch to cool off!
Unfortunately, until now, to install this type of system in an existing home was quite expensive. It required extensive renovating of the existing ductwork, and a lot of extra labor to do it after the home was built. What might have cost a few thousand dollars to do at the time of construction, became three times more expensive to do after the fact! Because of the ductwork changes needed, the cost and mess involved in installing this type of system in an existing home, tended to make the job too costly. But that was before we discovered what an Arzel Zoning System can do.
