Zone Your AC for Greater Control!

 

We live in a very hot climate, and that means that you are going to be using your air conditioning system with great regularity. With that in mind, it only makes sense to do everything possible in order to maximize your cooling experience.

If you’ve ever felt frustrated by the fact that you have to cool your entire home to one set temperature throughout, we’ve got some good news for you. A zone control system in Phoenix, AZ allows you to change that practice. Read on, and let a member of our staff know if you think zoned cooling is right for your home.

How Does It Work, and What Are the Benefits?

Zone control systems are actually pretty simple in theory. They utilize electronic dampers, installed in the ductwork, and multiple thermostats in order to maintain different temperatures in different areas of the homes in which they are installed. The thermostats and dampers are synced via a central control panel.

When you adjust the thermostat in any given temperature zone—you and your technician will determine how best to zone your living space—the corresponding damper(s) will either open or close, allowing more or less conditioned air into those areas.

This is a great way to cut down on your cooling costs, especially if there are areas in your home that are seldom in use. You can maintain more moderate temperatures in those areas, while cooling your kitchen, bedroom, etc. to a lower temperature. Plus, remember that different people are comfortable at different temperatures.

You can avoid arguments about thermostat settings when you opt for zone control. Living more comfortably while also cutting down on energy costs is a deal worth considering. You can also use a zone control system with your heater if it shares ductwork with your AC.
