What Is a Zone Control System?

If you’re in the market for a new air conditioner, or even if you just want to explore some upgrades or alternative options, you might want to consider a zone control system. It offers a viable alternative to simple centralized systems without forcing you to replacing your entire system. With summer on its way and Salt Lake City, UT residents getting ready for higher temperatures, now is an excellent time to think about adding such a system to your home. But what is a zone control system, and how can it benefit you? We’ve provided a brief list of answers below.

Valves and Shutters

Your air conditioning system consists of a series of ducts that extend from a central unit. The unit first cools the air and then sends it through the ducts into your home via a fan. Normally, that cooling is indiscriminate, affecting the entirety of your household and shutting off only when the main thermostat measures the desired temperature. A zone control system installs a series of valves and shutters in those ducts, allowing you to shut off the air in one particular section of the house, or cool it to a different temperature than the rest of the house. Individual thermostats and controls are installed as well, allowing you to adjust every section of the house differently.


The benefits of such a system are twofold. First of all, it allows you to tailor the temperature in your home to suit individual tastes: letting one family member enjoy 73 degrees in one room and another to set the temperature to 68 degrees in another room. Along those lines, a zone control system allows you to cool only those rooms you are occupying, saving you money on your monthly cooling bills.
