Why Install a Zone Control System?

zone-control-systemsCentralized air conditioners are a staple of most homes in the area, and with summer on its way, they’re going to be put to the test. You’re naturally going to be paying higher cooling bills in the summer months than you do in the spring and the fall, since your air conditioner will be running more often. There are simple ways to cut into those costs, such as dressing lightly in the home and turning your air conditioner off in the evening and opening the windows instead.

If you’re interested in more formal methods to handle those high costs, you might think about an upgrade to your existing centralized air conditioning system, allowing you to make more effective use of it. We strongly recommend zone control systems for those seeking to cut into their monthly bills, and to provide other key benefits as well.

How It Works

Centralized air conditioners use a series of ducts moving through your crawlspaces and other out-of-the-way locations to spread cool air to the various rooms in your home. A zone control system inserts a series of shutters at key points in that system, dividing your home into sections. Each shutter has separate controls that allow you to raise or lower the temperature in each part of your home separately, or even run the air in one part of your home without running it anywhere else.

What are the Benefits?

There are two key benefits to a zone control system, both of which are connected to each other.

  1. Personalized Temperatures. On a more luxurious level, zone control systems allow individual family members to set different temperatures in different parts of the home. For instance, say you’re reading in your bedroom and want the temperature to be at 72 degrees. Your spouse is cooking in the kitchen and wants to lower the temperature to offset the heat from the stove. With a central system, either you would have to freeze or your spouse would need to bake. But zone controls let you both enjoy the temperatures you want without having to fight over the thermostat setting.
  2. Improved Savings. By taking that ability to its logical extreme, the real benefits of a zone control system before apparent. You can simply turn off the cool air in parts of the home you aren’t using – such as bedrooms during the day, when most of the family is out – while still running it in parts of the home you are. That can cut into your air conditioning bills considerably, without losing the benefits of cool, comfortably air it’s intended to provide. It also reduces wear and tear on your system since it won’t see as much use: extending its lifespan and reducing the risks of a breakdown.

In addition, keep in mind that a zone control system will work equally well with your furnace or heating   system in the winter, provided it uses the same network of ducts as your air conditioning system.
