Have you ever wondered why certain areas of your home or too cold in winter, or too hot in summer? Well, contrary to what most think, the problem is not usually found in your heating or air conditioning equipment. Most generally, the experts at Broadview Heating find the problem lies in a number of areas, like your ductwork, or the room itself. Is the room on the second floor, or is the entire second floor uncomfortable? Do some areas have large windows or skylights? Is the room a basement or over a garage? Because every room has different load requirements we must control them independently of each other if we want true comfort. But how can we do this? Well now a very popular answer to this is zoning. Broadview Heating carries a superior product line that, in conjunction with any forced air heating or air conditioning unit, can effectively control temperature levels for any area to which the unit supplies service. It will make every room or area comfortable.


The Arzel Zoning System makes heating (or cooling) any area almost as simple as using a switch to light a room. It can provide heating, cooling, or fan operation separately for different zones throughout your home or business with only one central HVAC system involved.

As each “zone” calls for service, a zoning control panel will send two commands, one to automatic dampers which will then open the duct(s) to that zone and the other to the HVAC unit to provide the required heating or cooling. The dampers to the zones that do not require heating or cooling service will remain closed. By the reduction of HVAC service requirements, the speed and efficiency of airflow to the zone demanding service are greatly enhanced, and at a lower energy cost. Plus, with zoning, you can select to only heat or cool the areas of your home you are presently using. For instance, heat or cool your bedrooms at night, then turn them down during the day when you are not utilizing them. Using the zoning system in this way can resulting in up to 30% energy savings, a great benefit with today’s high fuel bills.
