What is Ducted Air Conditioning Zoning?

Zoning your new ducted air conditioning system will mean that everyone can enjoy their own temperature and air flow, and you can save on energy and running costs by turning off the air flow for rooms not in use.

Without zoning technology, a central air conditioning unit cools or heats the entire house, which means that every room receives the same air flow, regardless of room size, how many people are using (or not using) that room, the sun hitting one side of the house, or most importantly, everyone’s individual choices for the temperature.

Zoning lets you have different volumes of conditioned air in different areas of your home, and lets you turn off air in areas you are not using.

Zoning Your Air Conditioning Helps

In the past, your climate control was just on or off, generally for the entire house, which wasn’t very efficient. You couldn’t control air volumes for different sizes of room, nor could you shut off unused rooms. With different family members coming and going during the day or congregating in rooms together, these older systems meant that you’d be running the air conditioning in rooms not in use.

Older style traditional zoning requires a large common zone which remains open at all times to prevent air pressure build-up and damage to the ductwork. The common zone can occupy up to 25% or more of a home, and you will pay to heat or cool it regardless of whether you use that area which creates wastage. AirTouch and ZoneMaster solve these problems.

We believe that having total control of your home air conditioning system should be a necessity and not an option. We go on the basis that different areas of your home have different air flow needs, as do individual family members. Having the ability to monitor and adjust the amount of air going into each room should be easy. We took all this into consideration when designing our different systems to adapt and adjust to all your air-conditioning needs.

With our unique air control systems, you will be able to adjust the airflow in each room and increase your comfort level whilst at the same time decrease cost.
