How Exactly a Zone Control System Works and How It Can Benefit Your AC System

A zone control system is not something that every home has for their central air conditioning system, or even their home heating system. There is a lot of value to be had with a quality zone control system, though, a lot of benefits that can easily be realized. How does a zone control system work, though? What are some of these advantages? If you already have a central air conditioning system, should you have zones installed or is it something that is better to do after the initial installation? AC maintenance Jacksonville professionals like us at J&W Heating and Air can help you with all of these questions and decisions that you are trying to make.

The Zone Control System
A typical central air conditioning system is going to have just one zone, one thermostat. This means that you go to that thermostat and set it and the system is going to work until the temperature at the area of the thermostat hits where you want it to be. What if you have a house that has multiple floors, though? What if your thermostat is in a big open area that is far away from your bedrooms? When you have situations like this, even though the thermostat says a temperature in one area of the house, the real temperature in those other rooms could be drastically different.

The whole idea of a zone control system is to give you more control, more power over the other areas that may be far away from your central thermostat. Say you have two floors in your home, a zone control system can allow you to have a thermostat on the first floor, as well as on the second floor. If you want the second floor to be a temperature that is separate from the first floor, directly change that thermostat to your desired temperature. This can help you better regulate the air in your home to get it to where you desire it to be.

The Many Benefits

There are a lot of significant benefits that go along with a zone control system. Our AC maintenance Jacksonville professionals understand this which is why we want to help you whether you have a system already or are having your first system installed.

The energy efficiency gains you will realize with a zone control system is certainly the first place that you want to start. Why would you want to keep your second floor as cold as the first floor when you are only going up there at night to sleep? Why not keep that temperature higher upstairs so that you can conserve energy? Zone control systems mean that you can use your system where you need it and not have it running and trying to cool your home when it is simply not necessary.

Comfort level is the other big factor at play here as you want your home at that desired temperature level. You want to get it to exactly where you want it. If you want the bedroom to be 68 degrees and the living room to be 72 degrees while you sleep, a zone control system is what is going to allow that to be achieved with a large amount of precision.

Zone control systems, as well AC maintenance Jacksonville professionals will tell you, also helps to elongate the lifespan of your system. Multiple zones mean your system may not have to run as much as if it only had one zone, putting less pressure on it overall. Whether you have an existing system or are having a new one installed, we can work with you to help you figure out if a zone controls system makes sense for you.

I will be recommending J&W to my friends and family. They were very professional and on time. Did a very well job in... a quality manner. Dustin, Mark, and Robert. Worked very well together and was in and out with no cleanup for me to do. Thanks so much for getting my home back to a cool environment.read more

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company again.read more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two men.read more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
