New Uponor wireless control offers efficiencies for radiant systems
Autobalancing in the Climate Control Zoning System II provides 25% faster reaction times and 20% greater energy savings.
Apple Valley, MN, January 9, 2017 — Uponor North America (Uponor) is proud to announce the next generation in wireless controls for residential hydronic radiant floor heating systems. The new Climate Control Zoning System II features an innovative technology called Autobalancing that boasts 25% faster reaction times and up to 20% greater energy savings for radiant floor heating systems.
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.
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.
“With the new Autobalancing technology and the ease of installation with a wireless system, the Climate Control Zoning System II is our best controls offering yet for residential radiant floor heating systems,” says Wiedemann.
