What Is a Zone Control System?
The delivery system for your air conditioning is your ductwork. Controlling the airflow going through your ductwork is at the heart of a zone control system. How? Motorized dampers are placed inside your supply air ducts; each damper has its own thermostat. These dampers are then connected to a central control panel, which is regulated by the dampers’ thermostats. The dampers inside the ducts open and close as needed to raise or lower the temperature in a given zone.
What Is a Zone?
A zone can be a single room, a group of rooms, an entire floor, a wing of your home – whatever you want it to be. Before installing your zone control system, you and your HVAC technician will create a zone plan that will delineate the different zones you want in your home.
What Are the Benefits of a Zone Control System?
There are multiple benefits to installing a zone control system:
• Better energy efficiency – when you cool only the spaces you need to rather than your whole house, you cut down on the usage of your air conditioner. This can save energy.
• Customized comfort – that fight with the thermostat is over! With a zone control system, you have the ability to cool a given zone just as you want, without affecting other zones.
• Less strain on your AC – needing less cooling for your home means your air conditioner runs less; this helps reduce the strain on your system.
