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.

My technician Jorge (George) Gutierrez was out today performing the a/c system check. He did a fabulous job and identified significant issues and concerns for the longevity of my current 12 year old system. He was very knowledgeable and helpful on what my options are and in the end I’ll be getting a new system instead of worrying about the current system failing in our extremely hot temperatures. He was very respectful of my home and my dog was ecstatic to meet him.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
