Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling - Zone Control System

When you turn on the heating or air conditioning system in your home, where does the conditioned air go? If the answer is “to every vent in the house,” then you have a standard HVAC system that runs from a network of ducts connected to a central air handler. These systems are the most common found in homes and are convenient and effective at providing comfortable temperatures to all the rooms.

But there’s a drawback to this system, which is that the heated or cooled air goes to rooms that may not require it at the time. You probably don’t need to provide conditioned air to all the rooms all the time, and there is a way you can control which parts of the house receive comfort when the HVAC system comes on. It’s called zone control. Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling installs zone control systems for homes that help them achieve energy savings and happier household members. Call us today in Spring, TX to find out more about zone control and how we can install it for your home.

How Zone Control Heating and Cooling Works

A zone control system consists of a series of dampers connected to individual thermostats and a central control panel. Technicians place dampers into the ducts, one for each different "zone" in the house. (The homeowner determines how many zones he or she wants.) Each damper is then linked to a local thermostat to control it, and the thermostats are networked into the control panel where all of the zones can be manipulated.

Zone control installation can be done as part of putting in a new HVAC system, or it can be scheduled as a retro–fit for a current HVAC system.

The Benefits of Installing a Zone Control System

There are a number of different benefits from opting to have zone control in your home. Here are a few:

  • Energy savings – This is the big one, and the principle reason that people choose to have zone control installed. You no longer need to waste energy sending heated/cooled air to empty rooms. This is especially beneficial for large homes and homes that have frequently empty rooms such as guest bedrooms.
  • Individual comfort – If family members are often feuding over what temperature to set the thermostat, zone control can resolve the problem. Each person can adjust the temperature where they are by manipulating the local thermostat.
  • Climates to match rooms – Not every room requires the same temperature. Kitchen and home gyms need extra cooling, while an infant’s room benefits from a higher setting. Thanks to zone control, you can set each room to the temperature that best suits it.
