As we enter spring and move into summer, you’re going to be using your air conditioner more and more often. Sadly, there’s not a great deal that can be done about paying more in high monthly AC bills in the summer. But just because you need to pay more doesn’t mean you should pay more than is necessary. And while you can take small steps to curb your AC bills this summer, such as dressing in lightweight clothes and setting the thermostat a few degrees higher than you otherwise might, you might want to consider the kind of savings that a zone control system will bring.
Zone control systems install a series of shutters in your ducts at key points, allowing you to raise or lower the temperature in different sections of the household independently of each other. That can make for fewer squabbles around the thermostat setting, since different family members can set different temperatures throughout the house to suit their taste.
But the real benefits of a zone control system come in the ability to selectively shut off the air in parts of the home you aren’t using while still running it in parts of the home that you are. For instance, bedrooms on the second story are rarely used during the day, yet they can often be the warmest parts of the home and require the most air conditioning to cool down. Zone control systems let you turn the air off in those parts of the home while still running it in your living room or home office.
That, in turn can save you a great deal of money without having to skimp on cooling power. When applied regularly, it can also reduce the wear and tear on your system considerably
