As the days start to heat up, you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner more and more often in order to keep cool. You’ve probably already scheduled preventive maintenance for your system, to make sure that it’s all set for the summer heat. Have you given any thought as to how you can make it even more efficient, though? Read on to find out how zone control can help you this summer.
What It Is
A zone control system is a series of dampers, which are installed in the ducts throughout the home. Each of these dampers can open and close to direct the flow of air through the ducts, dividing the home into different zones. Each zone has its own thermostat, which is wired to both the dampers and the climate control systems. When a thermostat detects that it need air conditioning, it will open the appropriate dampers and activate the system.
Advantages of Zone Control
The advantage of zone control is that it gives you significantly more control over your indoor climate than a normal air conditioner would. Typically, an air conditioner can either be on or off; it can’t modulate its output for different parts of the home depending on their needs. This leads to a lot of hot and cold spots being created, due to the differences in insulation between rooms. Normal air conditioners also waste a lot of energy on empty rooms, which get conditioned along with the rest of the house. With zone control, you never have to worry about a room getting air conditioning unless you specifically call for it. This will make your air conditioner more energy efficient, and your home more comfortable.
