How Zone Control Systems Work

 

Have you ever wished you could cool one space more than another, or turn off the air conditioning in one room without needing to shut down the whole system? With a zone control system, you can. Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning has installed a number of zone controls systems in Tucson that have helped our customers become more energy efficient while also saving on their utility bills. We’ll explain below how zone control systems work, and why one may be a great upgrade for your air conditioner.

How Do Zone Control Systems Work?

Zone control systems work through independent, mechanized dampers that are installed into the individual supply air vents in your air conditioning system. Each damper is wired into the zone thermostat to which it belongs, allowing for that damper to be controlled individually to maintain the temperature set for that zone.

What Are the Benefits of Zone Control?

There are multiple benefits to adding a zone control system to your air conditioner:

  • Energy Efficiency – zone control helps you cool only the spaces that need it, allowing you to turn off the cooling in other parts of your property that are unoccupied. When your air conditioner runs less, it uses less energy, which can translate into savings on your monthly utility bill.
  • Increased Comfort – has your single-set thermostat left you uncomfortable because you are either too warm or cold? With zone control, you can set individual temperatures for spaces like bedrooms and living rooms separate from other spaces in your home, allowing for maximum comfort.
  • Less Wear on Your System – zone control means you will likely be needing less cooling for your home. Less cooling means less operation, which can help reduce the wear-and-tear on your system.
  • Helps to Cool Difficult Spaces – if you have tried to run a single-set air conditioner with an architectural feature like vaulted ceilings, you know how hard it can be to cool that one space evenly. With zone control, you can cool challenging spaces separately from others, helping to maintain temperature without stressing the system.

Zone control systems provide a level of control over your cooling that can’t be achieved with a single-set thermostat. Call Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning today and schedule an appointment to discuss how a zone control system can help you.

Installing zone control systems in Tucson is one of the many services Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning offers, and with 65 years of air conditioning experience behind us, we’re the ones to trust.
