Zone Control Systems

A nicely decorated room in a house.

Having direct control over elements in your home typically results in more convenience for you and many times a cost saving, not to mention reaching the highest level of comfort possible in your Clinton Township home. At Great Dane Heating and Air Conditioning, we can help you achieve that type of control over your home’s heating and cooling with both zone control systems and smart controls systems.

With zone control systems, you can route with precision where your heated or cooled air goes in your home. With smart controls systems, you can designate the whens and wheres of your heating and cooling from locations outside your home as well as anywhere inside. With these types of controls, you can begin to imagine the possibilities.

Zone Control Systems

A zone control system is helpful if you have rooms or areas in your home with uneven heating and cooling. Maybe you prefer your home set at a steady 68 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter, but one of your bedrooms and your family room are always much cooler. This is where a zone control system can help.

Also called a zoning system, a zone control system is a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) method of heating and cooling different areas of your home individually utilizing only one HVAC system. By using a zone control system, you can maximize your home’s efficiency and comfort via stipulating different temperatures for various spaces, or zones, in your Michigan home.

The brilliance of this system is you can control separate areas in your home simultaneously, depending on how you structure your zones. Working with our North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certified professionals, you can designate different areas of your home as zones.

Any areas, rooms, or floors can become a zone in the system. Whatever will bring you the greatest level of comfort is how we want to establish your zones. It is all up to you.

A zone control system primarily uses three components, in addition to your air ducts, also called ductwork—a control panel, the thermostat(s), and ductwork zone dampers. These dampers open and close, directing exactly where your heated and cooled air should go. Your home’s comfort will be controlled directly by you and this highly developed technology.

Two of the largest benefits from utilizing a zone control system, in addition to increased home comfort, are energy efficiency and cost savings. You are using your system in its most efficient manner by only heating and cooling the areas of your home as needed. This efficiency saves you energy, thereby saving on your energy costs. Additionally, if you add a smart or programmable thermostat to the system, your efficiency skyrockets as do your savings.

Smart Controls Systems

Smart controls are another name for home automation, which is one more level of control with various elements in your home. If you would like to incorporate smart controls into your lifestyle, affording you precise comfort and convenience, our highly trained experts can help you achieve that.

If you have no experience with smart controls in your home, think of this system as a venue for controlling different aspects of your home from one central hub. You could control your heating and cooling, lighting, and locks from your web-enabled computer, tablet, or smartphone with an app. This means you could be at work and turning your heating down, on vacation and controlling the lights in your home, or at the store and locking your front door. There are numerous possibilities.

As there are many possibilities, there are many levels to a smart controls system. If you would like to start slowly by only connecting to your heating and cooling system, we can explore with you how to best attain that. On the other hand, if you prefer to incorporate many layers and levels to your system, we will certainly help you with that as well.

The applied science for these systems is continuously growing, and our home automation specialists work hard to keep ahead of the trends and technology. We want to be able to offer you specifically what would best suit your lifestyle and budget. Your satisfaction and comfort are our highest priorities. We want you comfortable and safe.

Similar to zone control systems, your benefits with smart controls are energy efficiency and cost savings, not to mention the unprecedented level of convenience for you. With you able to exercise such absolute control over these different factors, you will no longer waste energy where it’s not needed. And by expending energy on an as-needed basis, your energy savings will soar, putting that money back in your pocket where it belongs.
