A professionally installed zone control system consists of a damper and thermostat for each room (or zone) of a house or building. The damper is simply a valve that regulates airflow within the duct. The thermostats are wired into a central control panel that controls the various zone dampers within the ducts. If you turn your thermostat off the damper closes and no airflow will enter that zone.
This system of zone control is incredibly effective at achieving maximum efficiency of your HVAC system. It also allows for different areas within the same system to have different temperatures and airflows.
