The Aprilaire Zoned Comfort Control System has been designed to increase comfort in your home and reduce energy costs. It’s able to do this because it solves the problem caused by various areas of the home gaining and losing heat at different rates. Unlike conventional heating and air conditioning systems, Zoned Comfort Control knows, at any given time, which areas (zones) of your home require conditioned air. With this information, the Zoned Comfort Control automatically directs the air to the zones that require it. Because of this, it will not only increase the comfort level throughout your home, it will also condition only the areas that need it, thus reducing your energy costs.
The components that make up the Aprilaire Zoned Comfort Control System are the following: thermostats, a Control Panel, air control dampers and heating and cooling equipment, as shown in the illustration on the following page. The Control Panel is typically located on an inside wall near your heating and air conditioning equipment. The dampers are located inside your air ducts in such a way that each zone can be independently controlled. Thermostats, placed in each zone, are directly connected to the Control Panel.
This model was designed to work with your heat pump. It can handle two stages of heat (one stage compressor, one auxiliary heat) and one stage of cool. The 6302 will control 2 zones.
