The new Climate Control Zoning System II features Autobalancing, which 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, Uponor notes.
