There are a number of ways you can improve the operation of your air conditioner in Jacksonville, and one way that helps all the people in your home is with the installation of zone AC. Also known as zone control, zone AC is a system that cools your home by dividing your home into zones. Each zone operates independently of one another, allowing you to cool only as you need to. How does the system work? Let’s take a look.

Motorized Dampers

Zone control works at the source of your home’s air delivery: the ductwork. After you and your Buehler Air Conditioning & Plumbing technician determine what the zones of your home will be, the technician will install motorized dampers into the supply ducts of your ductwork system that connect to the main control panel. He/she will then install thermostats into each zone that will also connect to the main control panel. Why is the main control panel so important? It is the control center for the system that opens and closes the motorized dampers as needed to maintain the different temperatures in each zone.

Why Install Zone AC?

There are several benefits a zone AC system can offer your home:

  • Customized comfort – a zone AC system allows you to set the temperature differently in each zone to accommodate multiple needs.
  • Saves energy – with a zone cooling system, you can cool only the areas you need it and shut off cooling in areas you don’t; this can reduce your overall energy usage.
  • Reduces stress on your AC – when your system doesn’t have to cool as much, it doesn’t operate as much; this helps reduce the level of stress on the system.
