Ductless AC and Zone Control Systems: Two Ways to Get Zone Cooling

 

Zone cooling is one of the most energy-efficient ways to keep your family more comfortable and gain more control over your air conditioning system. Zone control allows you to choose to vary the temperature throughout the home if needed. Or if your home tends to cool unevenly due to the architectural design, separate thermostats can ensure the temperature remains steady anywhere in the home.

So how can you bring one of these systems into your home? In Catalina, you can call the expert technicians at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning for installation of either a ductless air conditioner or zone control built into your central AC. Here’s how it works.

Zone Control and Central Air Conditioning

If you currently have a central air conditioning system, you can have a zone control system retrofitted into your ductwork. A technician must take apart one portion of each area of the ductwork for which you need zone control. Then, a damper is installed that opens or closes as you lower or raise the temperature. Generally, each area gets its own thermostat, but there is also a master thermostat that controls every damper in the home.

Ductless AC with Built-In Zone Control

When you choose to install a ductless air conditioner with multiple indoor air handlers, zone control is automatically at your fingertips. Ductless air conditioners are like central air conditioners as far as inner components are concerned, but they don’t require the use of ducts to supply cool air. This is ideal for any homeowner that does not want to add ductwork onto a home, but it comes with the added benefit of ductwork.

You’ll almost always need to install more than one indoor air handler with ductless cooling, unless you only need air conditioning for a single room extension or a small apartment. The air handlers are mounted up high in various areas of the house for even cooling, and each is connected to the outdoor compressor, which typically serves about 4 air handlers. As with central zone control, each area has its own thermostat, and you will usually get a master thermostat as well. You may even be able to use a remote control!
