If you’re using a central air conditioning system to stay cool this summer, there are a couple things you should know. One of the biggest disadvantages of central air conditioning is energy inefficiency. If you use a central air conditioner without any modifications, your home will be less energy efficient and more uncomfortable. Fortunately, there is a way to fix that. Read on to find out more about zone control, and how it can benefit you this summer.
A zone control system is a series of dampers, which are installed in the ducts of the home. Each of these dampers is like a large valve, which can open and close to direct the flow of air through the home. The dampers split your home up into different zones, each of which has its own thermostat. When one of these thermostats detects a need for air conditioning, it will open the appropriate dampers and turn on the air conditioning system. This system allows parts of the home to receive air conditioning without affecting the rest of them.
Benefits of Zone Control
The biggest issue with central air conditioning is that it can only condition the entire home or none of it. Each room in the home has slight differences, from insulation to sunlight exposure, that change how quickly it warms up or cools down compared to the rest of the home. This creates uncomfortable hot and cold spots. Empty rooms also get a lot of energy wasted on them. A zone control system eliminates these problems by granting much more granular levels of control over your indoor climate.
