Zone Control Repair FAQ

Are there any simple repairs that I can do on my zone control system?

It’s never a good idea for homeowners to try to repair their HVAC systems, especially one as complex as a zoned system. You could harm the equipment and yourself. But there are things you can and should do to help keep it in good condition and running smoothly.

These include changing the air filter every 4 to 6 weeks; keeping vents, return registers, and condenser units free of anything that obstructs airflow; and scheduling preventive maintenance for the cooling season once a year and for the heating season once a year. These simple things go a long way in preventing many problems and avoidable repairs.

I’m considering adding zone control to my current forced-air system. Are there common problems I should be aware of regarding the upgrade components?

The key components involved in the upgrade include a main control panel, motorized dampers that are installed in the ducts, and thermostats for the various zones. None of the components is especially prone to problems when they are of good quality and installed properly.

We can’t overstate the importance of using an HVAC company that is highly qualified and experienced in doing this type of installation. Subpar installation can typically result in stuck dampers and malfunctions in the thermostats and control panel. The fixes can range from minor to complex and very expensive, so, again, if a problem does arise, it should be diagnosed and repaired only by an experienced HVAC tech.

One of my zones isn’t cooling even though the thermostat is set to the right temperature. What could cause this?

It’s best to start with the simplest explanations, which in this case would be either a stuck damper or a problem with the sensor in the thermostat. While the air conditioner is running, you can check the airflow coming out of the vents in the problem zone. If there’s no or faint airflow, this suggests a stuck damper. If the airflow feels normal but not cool enough, it may be that the sensor isn’t registering the difference in air temperature and the thermostat setting. This information is helpful when you call to arrange for repairs.
