The complete Climate Control Zoning System II offering consists of a base unit, an expansion module and digital or dial thermostats. A single base unit in the system can support up to six thermostats and eight actuators. Adding an expansion module will increase the number of thermostats and actuators the system can handle to 12 and 14, respectively.
The new Autobalancing technology in the system calculates the actual energy need of single rooms and adapts the heat output of each loop by controlling the actuator’s on and off cycle. For example, a short loop might get 20% “on” time, while a long loop receives 60% “on” time. This technology allows the system to react to temperature changes faster and offers greater energy savings in the process.
"The beauty of Autobalancing is it continues through the seasons and throughout the household’s changing usage patterns, completely removing the need for manual balancing of the system,” says Jeff Wiedemann, product manager, Controls at Uponor.
“U.S. List Pricing” for the Climate Control Zoning System II:
Wireless Base Unit: $350
Wireless Expansion Module: $110
Wireless Digital Thermostat: $115
Wireless Dial Thermostat: $75
As for a “starting price,” a homeowner would likely purchase the Base Unit and, depending on her preference, either the Dial Thermostat or the Digital version. Therefore, the total would be (not that you can’t handle the arithmetic yourself): $350 + $75 = $425. Or, $350 + $115 = $465.
