All the Reasons to Consider Zone Control

comfortable-womanDo you know what our favorite thing in the world is? Helping homeowners, like you, achieve greater efficiency and comfort. One of the best ways to do that, of course, is with the addition of a zone control system!

What is a zone control system? Well, we’ve answered this question, as well as listed the benefits of installing one, down below. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more, and of course, remember to call us when you need air conditioning services in Colorado Springs, CO.

What is Zone Control?

A zone control system is a series of dampers that are installed throughout the ductwork of your HVAC system. These dampers can open and close to direct the flow of air through the ducts, thus splitting them into different zones. Each zone may be controlled by an individual thermostat or by a master thermostat — this allows homeowners to decide precisely which areas of their home will be cooled and at what temperature.

What are the Benefits?

There are plenty of benefits of installing zone control in your home, including:

Energy Efficiency

Far too much energy is wasted cooling unoccupied and unused spaces of your home. But, with zone control, you’ll have the ability to control precisely how you cool your home this summer. This means that you could save hundreds of dollars on annual energy bills!

Customized Comfort

One unique advantage of a zone control system is that it allows for customized comfort. Through the use of individual thermostats, you’ll be able to adjust the temperature in one room without affecting the temperature of another (no more fighting over the thermostat!).

Reduced Repair Needs

When your air conditioner is energy efficient, it is less likely to adhere to everyday wear and tear. With zone control, your AC won’t have to work so hard to circulate cool, conditioned air throughout your home, and without this added stress, you are less likely to need repairs.

Reduced Cooling Challenges

Certain architectural features can prove to be a real challenge for your air conditioner. Features such as vaulted ceilings, loft spaces, basements, and wall-to-wall windows can make it quite difficult for your AC to evenly cool your home. But, with zone control, you can separate these spaces from other areas of your home in order to properly cool them.

Ask Your Local HVAC Professionals

If you are interested in installing a zone control system in your home, be sure to consult with your local heating and cooling professionals. Only a certified HVAC  professional has the knowledge, training, and experience to determine if zone control is a good fit for your home!

And yes, there may be plenty of amateurs willing to lend a helping hand, however, sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much much more in the long run. Therefore, it is best to call in a pro and get the job done right the first time around.
