Do you look at your monthly energy bills and think about how much money you could save if you could turn off the cooling to rooms that are routinely unused or unoccupied? Or is someone in your home always under a blanket because it’s too cold in the living room? There’s a solution for all this and more: a zone control system in your St. Augustine home.
What Is a Zone Control System?
A zone control system is a series of motorized dampers that are installed into your ductwork. Each damper is connected to a thermostat that is wired into a single control panel. The dampers open and close as needed to reach the desired temperature you have set. “Zones” can be what you want – separate rooms, separate floors, wings of your home, etc.
What Can I Expect from a Zone Control System?
A zone control system offers multiple benefits:
- Customized comfort – separating your home into separate zones allows for customized comfort throughout for you and your family.
- Energy savings – cooling only those areas you choose can save on energy consumed by your system. Rather than cooling an entire home, you can now cool as needed.
- Reduction in wear-and-tear – with less cooling comes less operation, which is a good thing for your AC. Air conditioners have a specific life expectancy, and the more it runs, the shorter that life can be. A zone control system can go a long way toward reducing the level of wear-and-tear.
Is a Zone Control System Right for Me?
It is always best to work with a trained professional to determine whether or not you stand to benefit from a zone control system, but if your home has one of the following characteristics, you may be a good candidate:
- You have a multi-level property
- You have specialized architecture such as wall-to-ceiling windows
- A finished basement or attic
- Multiple wings off the central part of your home
