Zoning: Room by Room Comfort Control

Used in combination with premium Shift Air Mechanical equipment, our zoning solutions put heating and cooling where you want it, redirecting airflow to specific areas of your home as needed. Ensuring your temperature stays consistent, from floor to floor and room to room.

How Zoning Works?

Most residential HVAC systems have a single, central thermostat that controls the heated or conditioned air that is evenly distributed throughout an entire house. A zoned system divides your home into multiple zones, each zone has its own thermostat, providing greater temperature control throughout your house. Zone dampers are installed in the supply ducts that service each of the various zones, so that when the thermostat calls for heat or cooled air – it only does so for the zone that it is located in. Zoned systems are ideal in the following applications:
  • Unoccupied Areas – If you have areas of your home that remain unoccupied for long periods each day.
  • Hot & Cold Spots – If you experience big temperature fluctuations between rooms or floors in your home.
  • Additions / Renovations – You’re building an addition or are renovating.

Yes, electricians often handle the wiring and installation of thermostats. However, for complex HVAC systems or smart thermostat installations, HVAC professionals or specialized technicians may also be involved. The specific division of responsibilities can vary based on local codes, contract specifications, and the complexity of the thermostat installation.

The cost of a thermostat control can vary widely depending on the type of thermostat, its features, and brand. Basic thermostats can range from $20 to $100, while smart thermostats with advanced features and WiFi connectivity may cost between $150 to $300 or more.

A thermostat control regulates the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system by maintaining the desired temperature within a space. It measures the temperature and, based on the settings, signals the HVAC system to heat or cool the area until the desired temperature is reached.

In a control system, the thermostat serves the purpose of regulating the temperature within a space to maintain comfort and energy efficiency. It does so by acting as a sensor and a switch, signaling the HVAC system to adjust heating or cooling based on the temperature settings.

An electrician can install a thermostat, especially for basic low-voltage models. However, for complex systems, smart thermostats, or if you’re unsure about the installation, consulting an electrician or an HVAC professional is advisable. Safety, proper wiring, and compatibility are crucial considerations.

The proper procedure for troubleshooting thermostats involves checking for power, verifying settings, inspecting wiring connections, testing the thermostat’s functionality, and ensuring compatibility with the HVAC system. If issues persist, consulting a qualified technician for further diagnosis and resolution is recommended.

Signs that may indicate a faulty thermostat include inaccurate temperature readings, inconsistent heating or cooling, unresponsiveness to settings adjustments, short cycling of the HVAC system, or a blank display. If you suspect a malfunctioning thermostat, professional diagnosis and potential replacement may be necessary.
