Fall is here, which means that now is an excellent time to make repairs and upgrades to your heating and air conditioning system. The hot weather of our Mesa, AZ summers is over, but things haven’t yet gotten so cold that you need your heating system running on a regular basis. If you’ve been thinking about fixing or improving your system, this is a perfect chance.
Among the options you may want to consider is a zone control system, which allows greater control over your centralized heating and air conditioning system as well as providing the means to save a great deal of money in the process. Having a zone control system installed today will let you enjoy its benefits throughout the winter and into air conditioning season next summer. Here’s a brief breakdown of how it works:
Dampers and Valves
Your centralized HVAC system consists of a main heating unit and an air conditioning unit, which generate the hot or cool air. A fan then blows the conditioned air through a series of ducts to warm or cool your home. A zone control system installs a series of valves and dampers at key points in the ducts, dividing your home into sections. Each valve is controlled by a separate thermostat and control panel, which allows you to turn the air on and off for each room or section separately.
The obvious benefit of zone control is that you can adjust the temperature in each room of your house separately, allowing one family member to enjoy one temperature while another family member in another part of the house enjoys a completely different temperature. More importantly, by letting you turn off the heat of air conditioning in unused portions of the house, you can lower your monthly bills as well as reduce the strain on your system overall.
