With the advancement of so several up-to-date technologies in the world of residential heating and cooling systems, zone control is 1 trend that seems to be taking a substantial hold. Zones are unique locations in buildings that are “zoned” off to have individual temperature control. In many homes, the building is usually zoned off by the bedrooms, family room, study room, and other high traffic areas like bathrooms and home office. Therefore, if your cabin has “zone control,” it merely means that the individual rooms or locations in the cabin have their own temperature control. Years back, this was often achieved either by putting window a/c units in individual rooms and running them according to when each room is used. Or a similar setup however, is achieved with more advanced ductless Heating, Ventilation, and A/C systems that utilize outdoor condensers and have a larger degree of flexibility. But much like the zone control you would find in most hotel rooms, this setup relegates your heating and cooling to a bunch of odd machines that all need to be installed and controlled individually. Instead, there are newer systems that utilize complex ductwork dampers that control the airflow to each individual room to allow for any different set temperature in each 1 of those zones. Although you’re constrained to either using the AC or the heating system at any given time—not both simultaneously—it allows you to make 1 bedroom warmer or colder than another. Although the component is immense and the upfront costs with both parts and labor is much higher than with a non zone controlled system, it has the added benefit of giving your guests their own temperature control separate from affecting the rest of your house. For people with family that visit seasonally, this is priceless.
