There are many reasons why a zone control system is a good fit for your home. First, they save you money. Because zone control is a relatively inexpensive upgrade, the savings offered are significant.
By breaking your home into several distinct zones, you make it possible to only heat or cool the areas of your home that you are currently in. Right now, for example, when you turn on your heating system, it distributes heat to every room with a vent, including the upstairs which is probably empty most of the day. With a zone control system, you can set the upstairs as a single zone and turn off the heat there whenever you are not in it.
At the same time, a zone control system is also a luxury. Imagine being in the kitchen, working over a hot stove to make dinner and having the heat on, turning an already hot kitchen into a standing oven. With a zone control system, you can separate active spaces from inactive spaces. So, places where people move around like the kitchen can be set cooler than places where they sit and read or watch TV like the living room.
If you decide a zone control system is a good fit for your home, the installation process is relatively simple. Your air handler will need a few minor upgrades and new thermostats will be installed for each of the zones in your home, plus regular maintenance is recommended to test the system and its various electronic components, but in all it can be done in a single day and the cost will be offset within a year or two by your energy savings.
