Improve Your AC System with Zone Control

The days are already starting to get pretty warm around here, and it’s only going to get warmer as we get into the summer. As you prepare your air conditioner to cope with the stress of keeping you cool on a daily basis, you should also look at other systems that can improve its efficiency. One of those systems is zone control. Let’s take a look at how zone control can help make your air conditioner more efficient this summer.

Zone Control

A zone control system consists of a number of dampers, which are installed throughout your home’s ducts. These dampers open and close to direct the flow of air through the ducts, splitting them into a series of zones. Each zone has its own thermostat installed in it, which is linked to both the dampers and the air conditioner. When one of these thermostat requires air conditioning, it opens the appropriate dampers and activates the air conditioning system.

Advantages of Zone Control

The advantage of using a zone control system is that it allows you to modulate how much air conditioning output goes to each part of the house. That may seem like a pretty small reason to install the system, but it actually has a pretty significant effect on both your home’s comfort and your air conditioner’s energy efficiency.

Normally, an air conditioner only has two settings: on or off. This leads to a great deal of wasted energy on empty rooms, and tends to create hot or cold spots in areas that need different amounts of cool air. With zone control, you can ensure that all air conditioning output goes where you need it, and nowhere else.
