Retrofitting Your Home With Zoned Heating And Cooling
By Bryan Rutkosky
After a long day of work, it’s finally time for bed. You put your pajamas on and snuggle under the covers only to discover your room is far cooler than the rest of the house. Sound like a familiar story? If so, a solution awaits that will create comfort zones, ensuring balance during those chilly nights or hot summer days.
At BERS HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical & Energy Auditing, we carry a product called Arzel Zoning that enables different rooms to be different temperatures. Just like one light switch does not turn on lighting for an entire home, Arzel’s pneumatic zone system provides you with the ability to heat and cool individual rooms to your liking. By putting a thermostat in each room where you want to create a comfort zone, you not only increase your comfort levels, but you’ll also save money on your energy costs since you’re not heating and cooling the whole house with one device. If there are rooms in your home that you rarely use, simply wait to heat or cool them until you’re ready.
Arzel Zoning systems are unlike others currently available on the market. With their retrofit-friendly, air driven, EzySlide zoning dampers and innovative control panel technology, they offer a simple, easy, reliable solution for addressing temperature control issues.
The company provides consumers with a lifetime warranty, so if a damper goes bad, materials will be furnished for free. Other comfort zone systems rely on electric motors for each damper, which adds a much higher likelihood of costly repairs down the road. Meanwhile, Arzel Zoning uses air pressure, which increases its product’s reliability.
At BERS, we install Arzel Zoning systems at a cost of $1,800 to $2,500, including labor. Prices depend on the square footage of your home. We can provide you with a free estimate, and get you on the road to a more comfortable, energy-efficient home environment.
