Zone Control Systems: Your Answer to Uneven Heating and Cooling

zone-control-system-uneven-heating-coolingThe way in which your HVAC system functions is vital to the comfort of your home and your family. Efficiency is extremely important as it allows you to save money and lessen the environmental impact your home has. There are a variety of products, services, and systems out there to boost this efficiency, and many questions you should ask yourself before investing in any type of home comfort system.

A Bulverde, TX zone control system is one way to improve the efficiency of your central air conditioner and furnace. A zone control system involves a series of dampers, which are installed in your air ducts. These dampers can open or close independently of one another to restrict air to some rooms while supplying it to others. Each room—or zone—is equipped with a damper, enabling that room control over its individual climate.

The Advantages of Zoned Heating and Cooling

Whether you are heating your home in the winter or cooling it in the summer, a zoned system offers you the benefit of complete control, so that no conditioned air or energy is wasted. This is not the only benefit though!

  • Improve Efficiency: When you condition only the areas that you need to instead of your whole home, you cut down on the usage of your AC system, saving your energy output. This is especially true if you have a large home or a household with many bedrooms, some used as guest rooms or part-time office spaces.
  • Customize Your Comfort: No more family squabbles over what temperature to set your thermostat to! If someone else is too cold while another family member is warm, both can be satisfied. With a zone control system, you and your entire family have the ability to cool or heat a given zone just as each of you want, without affecting other zones.
  • Put Less Strain on Your HVAC System: Since you’ll need less cooling power during the summer and less heating during the winter, your central air conditioner and furnace won’t have to work as hard to do their jobs. Less strain means less wear and tear and a longer lifespan for both. Of course, this is also contingent on you keeping up on professional maintenance services.

For homeowners looking for a more responsive and efficient HVAC system, a zone control system is certainly the way to go. However, it is important to remember that this type of system can only work as well as it is intended if it is professionally installed and serviced by experienced and highly trained professionals—such as the members of our staff.

We recommend that if you’re in the market for a new air conditioner or furnace right now, that you have your new zone control system installed at the same time. However if you have a newer HVAC system already, we can certainly retrofit your current air conditioner and furnace. And if you ever need repairs or component replacements, we are here to assist!
