Central heating and air conditioning make our lives very comfortable. With the right thermostat, you simply need to set it to the temperature that you want your house to be and your HVAC system does the rest.
However, if you have a big house, you might be conditioning spaces that you don’t use very much, wasting both money and energy. There an easy solution to this problem that will cut down on your utility bills and keep your home comfortable all year round – a zone control system.
Zone control systems allow you to keep different areas of your house at different temperatures. You can have your heating and cooling system keep your kitchen one temperature and your living room another, and set up another zone for the parts of the house you rarely use. If you need zone control installation in the Greater Cincinnati area, call the experts at RineAir Heating & Air Conditioning. We have installed many of these systems, and we feel confident we can put in a zone control system to work in your home.
What are Zone Control Systems?
Zone control includes a system of thermostats that are connected to a control panel which operates dampers installed in your ducts. The dampers redirect the airflow through your ducts so that only the amount of heated or cooled air necessary to keep that zone the right temperature is directed there. Usually, you can have two to four zones installed (depending on the size and layout of your home).
Zone Control Saves Energy
Zone control systems can help you save a lot of energy. With a properly calibrated zone control system, you can keep the parts of your home you use the most completely comfortable, while turning down the heating and cooling in the rest of the home.
This will have a big impact on your utility bill because you will no longer need to heat and cool your whole home to be the same temperature. It also will make your home more comfortable; you can keep your bedrooms a little cooler for sleeping while keeping your living room warm and cozy.

Zone Extends HVAC Life System
Another benefit of using your HVAC system less is an extended lifespan on your equipment. Since zone control reduces the workload of your heating and cooling system, its parts will not wear down as quickly and it will continue to work efficiently for a longer period of time. Keeping your HVAC equipment in good shape is a great investment; replacement can be a complicated process.
