It may seem that using a central heating and air conditioning system is an “all or nothing” proposition: whenever the system turns on, it sends cooled or heated air to every room connected to the ducts. You’ll receive the comfort you need, but you will also end up providing comfort to areas that don’t actually require it at the time.
There is an alternative, however, and it doesn’t involve changing over to a completely new HVAC system. It’s called zone control, and the professionals at Verona HVAC in Los Angeles , Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valley, CA can install a zone control system either as part of a new heating and cooling installation or as a retro–fit onto your existing system.

How Zone Heating and Zone Air Conditioning Work
A zone control system has integrated into the ventilation system that connects to a forced–air heater and air conditioner. The components consist of a set of dampers that can close off airflow to specific parts of the ventilation network. Installers fit the dampers into the ducts, putting in as many as are necessary to create the number of “zones” in a home.
(For example, one very simple configuration is to have one zone for the upstairs and one for the downstairs; but there could also be as many zones as there are rooms.) The dampers connect, usually wirelessly, to zone thermostats that can manipulate them independently of the others. In turn, all the dampers connect to a central control panel that permits a homeowner to change the damper settings throughout the rooms.
