Zone control is one of the most useful additions you can install in your home. If you’ve ever wanted to vary the temperature in different areas of your house, zone control may be a great upgrade for your comfort and for your energy bills.
Zone control is installed in the ductwork and allows you to adjust the temperature in different rooms of the house to your specific preferences. This helps keep your family members happy; if you disagree about the temperature throughout the house, you can always change the temperature to your own specifications in a separate area, or zone.
Zone control can also help you to save money. If you have a large home, you may waste money every month cooling an entire home when only one or two rooms are really in use. With zone control, you can reduce your energy bills by choosing which rooms get cooled and which do not. If your entire family is watching television downstairs, for example, you may decide to turn off the AC upstairs and only cool the living room.
So How Do Technicians Install Zone Control?
Zone control can be installed either with your existing system or with new air conditioning installation. To install a zone control system, a technician must be able to access your ducts. The technician will install dampers within the ductwork in each area or zone you want controlled. A damper is a device that stops or reduces airflow by blocking the ducts that lead to that particular zone whenever the damper is controlled by a thermostat.
The technician will also install separate thermostats in each room or zone. Sometimes, a master thermostat controls every zone as well. When you set the temperature in a room, the dampers open or close to adjust the airflow so the room can reach your desired temperature.
