Zone Control Heating & Air Conditioning Systems in Washington, D.C.

Forced air heating and cooling systems, such as traditional split central air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps, remain incredibly popular in the residential sector. That being said, as many homeowners grow more and more concerned about energy efficiency, more and more of them are asking the same question: why must I heat and cool my entire home to one set temperature? We have good news! The answer to that question is: You don’t.

By incorporating a zone control heating and air conditioning system into one’s HVAC system, the homeowner can choose to heat or cool different areas in his or her home to different temperatures. This doesn’t just help residents to live more comfortably, it helps them do so in a far more efficient manner — which means an extended lifespan for the heater or air conditioner and lower energy bills. 

To learn more about the benefits of using a zone control system for air conditioning and heating your home, or to schedule zone control air conditioning system services anywhere in the Washington, D.C. area, contact Magnolia today. We are happy to provide you with truly exceptional zone control air conditioning and heating products and services.

What is a Zone Control System?

A zone control system is, in concept, quite simple. Electronic dampers are installed into the air ducts in a forced air distribution system. These dampers are wired into a central control panel; so, too, are multiple thermostats, one in each designated temperature zone. As the thermostats in the different temperature zones are adjusted, the dampers respond accordingly. By allowing the right amount of conditioned air to pass into any given zone, or closing off to stem the flow of air to a particular area, these dampers enable the user to maintain different temperatures throughout the living space.

Benefits of Using a Zone Control System

There are a number of benefits to using a zone control system for air conditioning or heating your home. First and foremost is the question of comfort. Different people in your home will inevitably be comfortable at different temperatures. By allowing for different temperatures to be maintained in different areas, you can keep everyone in your home comfortable and happy. Additionally, you can cut down on heating and AC usage. That means zone control air conditioning and heating systems help to reduce energy costs, as you heat and cool only those areas of your home you wish to, rather than the entire house all at once. This can also help to take some unnecessary strain off of your HVAC system.
