Why Use An Ultra-Zone System?
The Ultra-Zone zone control systems provide personalized comfort of heating and air
conditioning equipment for homes and offices.
The Ultra-Zone system uses motorized dampers controlled by
room thermostats to selectively control the temperature for each zone of
the home or building. This is called "zoning".
Areas are zoned off in order to allow tighter control of
heating and cooling. This is very similar to the the lighting and plumbing
systems in a house. You do not have one main light switch that turns ‘on’
and ‘off’ all the lights in the house, nor do you have one faucet that turns
‘on’ and ‘off’ all of the water in the house. Each system has separate
controls for each room and fixture. The Ultra-Zone system will allow that same degree of
control for your heating and cooling.
The Ultra-Zone system permits personalized comfort of each
zone - providing temperature control where you want it... when you want
No more running ‘up’ and ‘down’ stairs to control the
temperature. Each zone has it's own thermostat.
Ultra-Zone systems can reduce energy costs by 25-30% or
more. By using setback thermostats, you only pay for the heating and cooling
when you want it.
The heating and cooling equipment makes up the largest
part of the monthly utility bill. Why not control these items the same way
you do with your lighting and plumbing?
Why use an ULTRA-ZONE system rather than two HVAC units?
Some contractors are installing two heating and cooling units to try and
satisfy the comfort needs of homeowners. This is an expensive alternative
to an Ultra-Zone system. Two units cost more to install and maintain.
One unit and a damper system is far less expensive than the cost of the second
furnace. The cost of two units drastically increases when an additional
air conditioner is installed. For example, in place of using two 2 ton
heating-cooling systems, an Ultra-Zone system can be used with one 4 ton unit to
an average savings of 30-35% of the overall cost. This cost reduction
comes from eliminating duplicate work and installations. With one unit,
the installation is much faster and the material will cost less. With
lower costs to the homeowner and more comfort features as its benefit, the
Ultra-Zone system is highly recommended over installing two units.
