What Is a Zone Control System?

Summers in White Plains, NY are as hot as they are elsewhere in the area, and without a proper air conditioning system, your home is apt to become as hot as an oven. But traditional centralized air conditioners can sometimes struggle to do the job, especially if you have a larger house or the house lacks the insulation necessary to keep the indoor air comfortable. Installing a new system can be prohibitively expensive, especially if your existing one is still working as normal.

The solution could be a zone control system, which divides your ducts into different sections and provides an enhanced measure of control over your air conditioning system. What is zone control and how can it benefit you? We’ve provided a quick breakdown below.

How It Works

Zone control systems are essentially just shutters, placed at key points in your ductwork and dividing your home into individual sections (usually by room, but not always). Each valve has a control panel and a thermostats allowing you to control it separately from the rest of the system. Some models also contain central control panels allowing you to control all of the valves in the system from one select location.

What Are the Benefits?

The most obvious benefit is the ability to shut off the air conditioning in unoccupied parts of the home while keeping it running in the parts of the home that you are using. This can help cut down on your air conditioning bills tremendously, as well as reducing the strain on the system (always a concern with larger homes). On a more luxurious note, it lets you set the temperature in different rooms separately, allowing for a tailored air conditioning experience and preventing family squabbles over the temperature.
