Trol-A-Temp to ZoneFirst
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
At the Oil Heat Show I spent sometime with Dick Foster,
whose father started Trol-A-Temp, which was the leader in
developing zoning for ducted systems. Dick followed in his
dad’s footsteps and is continued to be on the cutting edge
developing new control panels and improving the dampers. He
later sold the Trol-A-Temp product line and continued to
manufacture dampers for several OEMs.
Today Dick has re-entered the zoning market with even
newer and easier to install product features. Under the new
name ZONEFIRST™, the company capitalizes on its history of
being the first to successfully market forced air zoning. It also
notes the many product firsts the company has developed and
lastly wants to make known that all forced air systems must be
designed around zoning first and not an after thought. Think of
hydronic heating, how many systems go without zoning?
Almost never. On the other hand almost every air system does
not have zoning. Why not?
Zoning greatly improves comfort, substantially reduces
Energy Costs, and is as simple as having a light switch in every
room of the home. When your customers are aware of what
zoning can do, they’ll buy it. Why not design your air systems
around zoning. If the customer does not go for it now, wait
until the fuel bill comes. It’ll be an easy sell and a great
opportunity for added profit. Call us and check outwww.zonefirst.com
