Spring is here, and already our temperatures here in Longwood, FL are growing warm. You may be looking for new ways to improve your air conditioning’s performance this summer: cutting down on those high bills without reducing the comfort levels in your home. The solution is a zone control system, installed in your existing air conditioning system and allowing you to exercise a greater degree of control than previously anticipated. How does a zone control system save you money? Read on for the answers.
The system itself is simply a series of valves and shutters placed at key points in your duct system. They divide you home into sections, usually by room, and every valve and shutter comes with its own control panel and thermostat. As a result, it lets you adjust the temperature in each room individually, or even shut off the cool air in parts of the home you aren’t using. Furthermore, because it works with your existing system, there’s no need for expensive replacement sessions or a new air conditioner. The technician simply adds it to your system as-is, making it a much easier and less expensive option than replacement.
The obvious benefit of a zone control system is that it lets you avoid squabbles over the temperature in the home. One family member can sit in one room and another family member in another, each with the temperature setting best suited to their tastes. But expanding on that notion lets you see the real value of such a system. By turning off the cool air in parts of the home you aren’t occupying, you can lower the amount of energy you use to stay cool and drop your monthly bills in the process.
