Is your family having a hard time staying comfortable due to hot and cold spots throughout your home? Unfortunately, the only place in your home where the temperature matches the thermostat reading is at the thermostat. You don’t use one light switch to light your entire home, so why use one thermostat? By upgrading to a zoning system in your Cincinnati home, you can take control of these comfort issues and lower utility costs.
What Is a Zoning System?
Rather than heating or cooling your entire house equally using a single thermostat, a zone control system uses multiple thermostats and segments your home into particular areas, efficiently heating and cooling only the areas you use to save a substantial amount of energy.
Benefits of Adding a Zoning System to Your Home
- Comfort and control – Occupants in your home can adjust temperature to their comfort levels without affecting other areas in your home.
- Lower heating and cooling costs – By focusing only on areas of your home that are in use, a well-designed system can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 30 percent.
- Extend the life of your HVAC system – Peak performance and temperature control is delivered without the need for operating at full capacity. This reduces noise levels as well.
- Address temperature control problems – Multi-level homes and those with a finished basement, attic or over-garage rooms have different temperature needs. Zoning is also a benefit for rooms with extensive window areas; areas of your home with open areas such as vaulted ceilings, lofts, atriums and solariums; and homes with multiple wings.
Designing Your Zoning System
It’s important to have your zone control system professionally designed and installed to ensure peak performance and energy savings. Typical homes benefit from three zones, however your HVAC professional will have the experience necessary to know when additional zones are useful.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
