Zoning Systems

Zoning allows homes or offices to be divided into separate temperature zones, in essence room to room temperature control. Zoning is capable of providing a thermostat for each room in a given space. The thermostat then signals an automatic air control damper in the duct for that room or zone which controls the flow of the conditioned (heated or cooled) air. With zoning only the area(s) needing conditioned air get it while areas that are already comfortable do not, solving the problems of rooms becoming too hot or too cold.

The patented Activent louver system was designed and tested for five years. Its rugged construction and ease of use mean homeowners will continue to enjoy the comfort and savings Activent offers for years to come.

Activent comes in a variety of sizes to fit the following air registers

4″ x 10″ – 4″ x 12″
4″ x 14″ – 6″ x 10″

The Remote Temperature Controller (RTC) is easy to adjust for any comfortable room temperature. Switch the

RTC to the heater mode in winter or the AC mode in summer and let the Activent work for you creating a comfortable environment while saving you money. The RTC can also be used to manually open end close the Activent louver system.

LED lights, on the cover of the RTC, signal if batteries need to be changed in the Activent louver system or the RTC unit.

Innovation – An average home in North America has 9-12 rooms of which 2-4 rooms are typically being over heated or over cooled.

Comfort – Installing an Activent in these rooms helps eliminate this problem. The homeowner sets the desired temperature for the room using the Remote Temperature Controller and the Activent louver system will maintain the desired temperature.

Energy Savings – In addition to maintaining the desired temperature in Activent controlled rooms, the Activent redistributes the hot or cold air to other rooms. This allows the rest of the home to reach its set temperature in a more efficient manner, therefore helping reduce utility bills by up to 5% per Activent equipped room.

With our new Color Coded Push-In Wiring Terminals and Plug-in Zone Dampers, ZoneFirst is making Zoning easier and faster to install again.

Only ZONEFIRST offers simple, easy-to-wire zone control panels that eliminate the time to screw in every wire from the damper motor and thermostat. Our NEW Color Coded Push-In terminals helps every installer easily see where each thermostat Y-G-R-W and C, if used, wire should go. The push-in terminals make it easy to insert each wire quickly and easily. The quick release button also makes removing the wires easier and less time consuming than screwing and unscrewing each wire.

Our NEW Plug-In Damper Motors use a modular plug cord or telephone wire, to simply plug-in each damper. The NEW DC powered motor uses much less power and current than 24VAC motors, which is another savings, and has a built-in two color LED to indicate when the damper is Open (Green) and Closed (Red). Each damper also includes a 25 foot modular cord and splitter. The splitter allows slaving up to 10 additional dampers on the same zone. Also ZONEFIRST is the only one to give you the wire for the dampers . . . another advantage and cost savings.

ZONEFIRST’s New Plug-in Zone Dampers and Controls with Color Coded Push-in Wiring Blocks is so easy and so FAST, you’ll be done in a SNAP. There’s not another system out there that’s Easier, Faster and Simpler.
