We are certified by North American Technician Excellence (NATE), the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Performance Tested Comfort Systems (PTCS).

Our certified, knowledgeable professionals can install a zone control system that enables you to control temperatures in different areas of your home simultaneously with just the touch of a button.
This system is the perfect solution for homes with rooms rarely used and needing less cooling or heating than other areas. Homes with concrete slab foundations, large windows, multiple stories, high ceilings, or finished rooms in the attic or basement also are good candidates for a zone control system.
Controlling the temperature in each zone means you will save energy, shrink your utility bills, and keep everyone in the family happy. Say goodbye to thermostat wars and hello to customized comfort.
How Do Zone Control Systems Work?
The great news about installing a control zone system is you decide the location and size of each zone with guidance from our Dana’s Heating & Cooling experts, your trusted HVAC source. You can define a zone as a room, several rooms, or even an entire floor in your multistory Bremerton home. Whatever you decide, we will help you achieve the ultimate comfort in your home that comes with a zone control system.
Zone Control System Installation
Our experts will place dampers in your HVAC ductwork that distributes heated and cooled air throughout your home. Each zone you create will be equipped with a thermostat connecting to a central control panel. When you adjust each thermostat, the control panel opens or closes dampers to distribute hot or cold air where needed.
You may wonder if you can achieve the same result simply by adjusting the louvers on your air vent covers. Merely closing or partially opening a vent restricts the amount of air that exits the ductwork but does not cause an air conditioner (AC) or furnace to produce less cold or hot air.
By comparison, a zone control system not only redistributes airflow by operating dampers, but it also controls the HVAC units, telling them when to run and when to shut down. That eliminates unnecessary energy expenses.
Using air vents as a substitute for zone control may contribute to air leakage and low airflow, among other problems. Those adjustable slats over air vents are designed to direct the flow of air into a room, not block it entirely.
A zone control system offers you the ultimate in customized heating and cooling options. It saves you money and energy and will provide you with the utmost in comfort. Ask us about financing options if needed when you call for installation.

If my home has no ductwork, can I still create a zone control system?
Absolutely! Ductless systems, also known as mini splits, can be used in single rooms or multiple rooms throughout your Bremerton home. A whole-house system has the capacity to create eight different zones with mini splits and provides controlled comfort in homes as large as 3,500 square feet.
Why does my home have hot and cold spots?
A single thermostat only measures the temperature in the room where it is located, meaning one room may reach the desired temperature, but other rooms may still require additional heating or cooling. This especially holds true in larger homes with multiple floors.
Will a zone control system lower my utility bills?
Zoning is a great way to lower your energy expenses. Creating zones in different areas of yourWashington home puts less pressure on your HVAC system because it will not need to cool or heat your entire home. The biggest benefit, of course, is enhanced comfort.
What are some zoning tips?
Use a programmable thermostat with your zone control system to maximize your comfort and energy savings. Every degree can make a difference—programming your thermostat to match the times you are away from home or asleep will save a significant amount of money and lower the wear and tear on your HVAC system.
