How Technicians Do Zone Control Installation

Friday, July 4th, 2014

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.

AC Tip: Boosting AC Efficiency with a Zone Control System

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Homeowners are increasingly conscious of the benefits of increased efficiency in their Odessa HVAC systems. For air conditioning especially, small changes and upgrades to your home can have a huge impact on how efficient your system is as a whole. One such upgrade that can be done quickly and on a budget is installation of a zone control system.

 What is a Zone Control System?

A zone control system separates your home into separate climate zones, each with their own thermostat. So, instead of a single central thermostat that determines how much cooling is delivered to your entire home, you can have multiple thermostats on each floor or even in each room of your home.

Zone control systems can be installed on most major brands and types of modern air conditioners (and heating systems) and often involve upgrading your thermostats to programmable, digital models.

How Does a Zone Control System Boost Efficiency?

A zone control system boosts efficiency in a number of ways. To start, it instantly reduces the volume of cooling delivered to your entire home. You can turn off the thermostats in rooms you are not in and even when they are on, they will ensure more accurate readings. If your downstairs rooms are generally cooler than upstairs, the cooling delivered will be sufficient for that specific room.

Zone control systems are also programmable, making it possible to determine when each room of the house receives cooling. Bedrooms can be set to 80 degrees throughout they day and cooling will be minimized.

A zone control system not only lowers energy consumption but improves comfort levels by allowing individual people to decide what temperature it will be where they are. This is a great upgrade and one of the most effective you can make to improve efficiency for your Odessa AC system.
