If you currently have a standard central HVAC unit, chances are that when you cool your home, you are cooling every room in the house at once. This probably means you are conditioning rooms that are unoccupied. While there are benefits to this, particularly for smaller living spaces, overall it’s an inefficient practice.
The solution is zone control cooling. This allows you to divide your home into various “zones”—as few as two and up to as many rooms you have in your home. Each zone is equipped with its own thermostat and cooling controls, which is all linked to one central thermostat, making this a great option for homes with multiple occupants. Below we’ve highlighted the biggest benefits of zone controlled systems.
