Uponor North America launches 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 percent faster reaction times and up to 20 percent 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 percent “on” time while a long loop receives 60 percent “on” time. This technology allows the system to react to temperature changes faster and offers greater energy savings in the process.
The complete Uponor 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.
