What is a Zoned Air Conditioning System

Zoned heating and air conditioning systems allow you to control the temperature of each room individually. By using a series of motorized dampers and thermostats that work independently, zoning can eliminate hot or cold rooms found in almost every home, while cutting energy by up to 25 percent, according to industry sources.

Benefits of Zoned Air Conditioning Systems

Increased Comfort – No more rooms that are too hot or too cold
Energy-Efficiency – Heat or cool only the areas you want, allowing you to save energy
Increased Control – Control heating and cooling comfort where you want it, when you want it.

How does Zoned Air Conditioning Systems Work?

Zone controlled systems divide a home into areas with common heating and cooling needs. Airflow is controlled in each area by a separate thermostat. Then, instead of sending the same amount of heated or cooled air into all room every time the furnace or air conditioner is turned on, the system sends conditioned air only to the zones that need it. With zoning, you can cool or heat one area of the house at a time.
