Why Should You Include Zone Controls with Your HVAC Installation?

What Are Zone Controls?

Zone controls allow you to control which parts of your home receive heating and cooling. If you’ve ever seen a ductless mini split heat pump system, then this is a good example of what zoned heating and cooling looks like, as each air handler can be turned on or off independently of all the others.

If your home is like most in our communities, you have ductwork distributing heated and cooled air throughout the year. This means that whenever your home comfort system turns on, conditioned air goes to every room vent, whether the space needs comfort control or not. This is why adding zone controls is a huge benefits.

Zone controls for central air conditioners and heaters consist of a series of dampers, which are fitted directly into your air ducts. These dampers shut off the flow of air to particular rooms—called zones. Local thermostats are assigned to each zone and damper, and a central control panel manages each of the zones, plus reduces the amount of work the AC and heater performs.

As a result, your HVAC system will consume less energy since it only needs to heat and cool occupied rooms, resulting in lower monthly costs for you.
