house is filled with different zones
With the advent of so many new technologies in the world of residential heating and cooling, zone control is a single trend that seems to be taking a considerable hold. Zones are in particular locations in the buildings that are “zoned” off to have individual climate control. In a small to medium sized home, the building is usually zoned off by the home offices, study room, family room, as well as other high traffic areas such as lavatories as well as study’s. Therefore, if a new home has “zone control,” it merely means that the individual rooms or locations in the new home have their own individual temperature control. Years back, this was often achieved by either putting window air conditioners in individual rooms as well as running them according to when each room is used, or a similar setup but with more advanced ductless mini chop Heating, Ventilation and A/C systems that utilize outdoor condensers as well as have a greater degree of flexibility. However, much similar to the zone control you would find in most hotel rooms, this setup relegates your heating as well as cooling to a bunch of individual machines that all need to be installed as well as controlled individually. Instead, there are now newer systems that utilize complex ductwork dampers that control the airflow to each individual room allowing for a different set temperature in each one of the single zones. Although you’re limited to either using the A/C or the furnace at any given time—never both simultaneously—it allows you to make a single home office warmer or colder than another. Although the component is sizable as well as the upfront costs with both parts as well as labor is much higher than with a non zone controlled system, it has the added benefit of giving your guests their own temperature control without affecting all of the rest of your house. For people with family that visits often, this is priceless feature for sure.
