By now you’ve been able to enjoy the cooling comfort your air conditioner has been supplying for the first half of this summer. But have you wished that you could have better control over the temperature of certain areas of your home, or gotten tired of hearing complaints that someone is too cold while someone else is too warm? It can be a challenge to evenly cool an entire home from one thermostat, which is why you may want to consider zone-controlled air conditioning in Palm Bay.
What Is a Zone?
A zone is anything you want it to be – individual rooms, a group of rooms, a hallway, an entire floor – the choice is yours.
How Is a Zone’s Temperature Controlled?
The zone system is a series of motorized dampers that are installed into your ductwork. Each damper has a thermostat, and each thermostat is wired into a control system that manages when the dampers open and close, according to the temperatures that are set. You, as the owner, manage the control panel, so you have total temperature control over each zone.
What Are the Benefits of a Zone Control System?
- Better energy efficiency – zone control system allows you to cool only the areas/rooms of your home that need it; you can turn off the cooling to other parts that are unused or unoccupied. Cooling what you need instead of cooling an entire house helps reduce your energy usage.
- Customized comfort – with zone-controlled air conditioning, you can adjust the temperature for the needs of a specific space or person without having an effect on the rest of your home. This creates more effective cooling and better comfort.
- Less strain on your system – when you need less cooling, your air conditioner cycles less; this puts less wear-and-tear on your system.
