AC Home Zoning in Twin Cities
We Help You Save on Cooling Costs
Many people don’t use every room of their home, every day. Unfortunately, most heating and cooling systems are designed to heat the whole home, regardless of whether or not every room is occupied. Our expert air conditioning team at Uptown Plumbing, Heating & Cooling wants to help you significantly reduce your utility bills by eliminating the cooling of rooms that are not in use.
This technique, known as home zoning, allows the homeowner to decide which rooms need to be climate controlled, as well as which rooms can be left out of the day's air conditioning.

Zoning Tactics to Suit Each Home
Most likely, you will not need to install a new system in order to benefit from the cost-effective home zoning method of cooling your home. Some homes may need a new unit in certain areas; however, the installation of a home zoning system in Minneapolis is usually much simpler.
As your expert air conditioning service team, we zone your home through a few techniques:
- Individual thermostats are placed in each room over which you want to have temperature control. These thermostats can control just that one room, or may rooms, depending on your preference.
- Dampers, or panels, are installed within your existing duct system and wired to respond to a corresponding thermostat. When you adjust the temperature in that zone, the dampers open or close to allow the proper air flow.
- A master zone control panel speaks to each zone, ensuring overall control of your entire air conditioning system.
If these methods do not suit the needs of your house, we can recommend other zoning techniques. Some homes benefit from individual ductless units thoughtfully placed in each room, allowing individualized control of that space. Small duct AC systems are another similar solution to homes that do not have a working duct system.
