Is Zone Cooling a Good DIY Project?

 

There are a number of things you can do around your house that are good choices for a homeowner to handle: gardening, lawn maintenance, small painting tasks, etc. But when it comes to working on any kind of whole-home system, it’s best to leave these kinds of jobs to the experts. Installing a zone cooling system in Scottsdale requires training and expertise, so call the people you can count on: Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning.

What Is Zone Cooling?

Zone cooling, also known as zone control, is a zoned temperature control system for your home. Using a series of motorized dampers installed into the supply ductwork, a zone control system allows you to manage the temperatures in your home via individual zones, each with its own thermostat, versus using a single thermostat for the entire house.

How Does a Zone System Work?

The first step is to designate what the zones in your home are going to be; working with the technician, you’ll outline these zones. Once the zones have been determined, the motorized dampers will be installed into your supply ducts and connected to a main control panel. Thermostats will be installed into each zone, and the thermostats will also be connected to the main control panel. The main control panel will open and close the motorized dampers as needed to maintain the different temperatures in each zone.

What Are the Benefits?

One of the biggest benefits of zone cooling is the ability to customize your indoor comfort. If you’ve had to deal with uneven cooling, a zone control can eliminate that. You can also turn off the cooling (or heating) to a specific zone when that area isn’t occupied, which you can’t do with regular ductwork. Using only the amount of cooling you need can reduce your energy use and as a result, possibly save you money on monthly energy bills. Lastly, less operation of your system means less wear and tear on it, and less wear and tear means reduced aging.

If you’ve been looking to maximize both comfort and energy efficiency levels from your air conditioner, consider the installation of zone cooling in your Scottsdale home.
