Energy Savings With Zoning

Peak Electricity Usage

There are several studies that confirm the tremendous energy savings that Zone Damper Systems can achieve over single zone systems. Zoning allows you to shut off rooms not being used and prevents rooms that are already comfortable from receiving air that makes rooms Too Hot or Too Cool. With today’s high cost of energy, and it will continue to go higher, when did you see your utility bill go down just because gas at the pump dropped, everyone is looking for ways to reduce their utility bill. Depending where you live, heating and cooling can be as much as 65% of your monthly utility bill. Heating and cooling unused parts of the home or wasting energy heating or over heating some rooms while others are still too cold is no longer affordable. Many experience this condition in their homes and offices every day.

Zoning solves both problems. When you install a zone damper system with a thermostat in every room or zone, you eliminate the problems associated with forced air of rooms that are Too Hot While others are Too Cold. Zoning provides the benefit of Comfort and the value of Energy Savings.

These studies show savings of 15% to 30% for zoning over single thermostat homes. Savings will vary by the use of the system. In fact, zoning can actually cost you more, if one were to keep all thermostats set at the same temperature. However, the most effective way to save is setting back the thermostats in the unoccupied zones. The amount of temperature setback and time of the setback are all variables on the savings that will be achieved.

The combination of zoning with automatic setback thermostats will truly enhance your comfort and savings by providing an automatic system for setback for each zone on a daily basis.

    • The Word On The Street

      • I was a little unsure about how zoning would benefit my family, but I am glad we decided to install it in our home! Since the install, we have noticed a tremendous amount of savings on our cooling costs. Not to mention our upstairs no longer stays 10 degrees hotter than the rest of the house.
      • The smartest decision we made as a company was to make the switch to ZONEFIRST. We managed to cut our install time in half due to the ease of the Plug & Play System. The color-coded control board and the pre-wired dampers make the process hassle free. Thanks for a great product!

      • The system went in very smoothly with careful planning. I've set up three zones, one for each level. Looking to add more in the future if needed. Wiring was simple, even up to the existing wired thermostat, wireless stats and the equipment wiring. After reading the instructions, I had no problems. Thanks again!
