A zone control system refers to a system that divides your house into different sections – often by room, but sometimes in other ways depending on the layout of your house. Some zone control systems involve multiple units throughout your house, while others simply add valves or other seals into an existing system such as ductwork. In any case, zone controls allow you to tailor the temperature in each zone, making some areas warmer and others cooler. It also allows you to heat or cool specific points of the home, while leaving the rest of the house untouched. Here in Los Angeles, heating and cooling services can install a zone control system for you. But what are the benefits of a zone control system?
It boils down to two things: greater control and greater savings. The first part is self-evident. Most centralized HVAC systems require you to heat or cool the whole house to one set temperature. Zone control systems add a greater amount of flexibility. Say you’re cooking something in the kitchen and running a hot stove, while another family member is watching TV in the living room. The zone control system lets you lower the heat in the kitchen while turning it up in the living room, making sure both of you are comfortable no matter what the circumstances.
Even more importantly it the savings in monthly energy costs. A zone control system lets you heat only those parts of the home that you’re using, leaving the heat off in the rest of the house. The HVAC system thus uses less energy and you get a lower monthly energy bill in the process. That comes on top of the improved resale value that a zone control system provides.
