Can Zone Control Cooling Improve My Air Conditioner’s Efficiency?

Air Conditioning

Summer is not that far off, which means it’s well beyond time to make sure that your air conditioning system is ready for the stress that is about to be added to it. Preventive maintenance and prompt repairs can ensure that your AC is in good shape for summer, but what if you could do more to improve its efficiency?

You can make your home more comfortable as well as more energy efficient by adding a zone control cooling system to your home. Keep reading to learn more about these systems and the benefits that they can provide.

How Does It Work?

Zone control systems involve installing a number of dampers in the ductwork of your home, splitting them up into different zones—hence the name of the system. Dampers may be opened or closed to direct the flow of air through the ducts, and each zone houses its own thermostat inside of it.

Each thermostat in a zone control system is wired to the dampers that make up its zone. Once one of these thermostats detects a need for air conditioning, it opens the right dampers and turns on the system. This allows your air conditioner to cool part of the home without affecting the entire house.

What Are the Benefits?

While a central air conditioner has many benefits, it only has two modes. Those modes are on and off, which doesn’t allow the system to modulate their output for different parts of the home. A central AC system can also create hot and cold spots throughout the home due to differences in insulation.

As a result, a lot of energy is wasted on empty rooms. However, a zone control system resolves this be enabling your air conditioner to change how much output it sends to each area of the home. This will make your home more comfortable, and your AC more energy efficient.

He did an amazing job keeping me informed and I would hire him again if needed... Shawn you are wonderfully amazing. Thank you so much for your time!


Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.


When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
