1. A method of a server in an air conditioning system, the method comprising:
determining a schedule duration for a compound control zone in which a compound control operation for controlling a ventilating operation of a ventilating apparatus and a cooling/heating operation of an air conditioning apparatus will be performed;
determining a ventilating schedule based on an air state change; and
determining a cooling/heating schedule,
wherein determining the ventilating schedule based on the air state change comprises;
predicting a carbon dioxide (CO2)concentration during the schedule duration;
predicting a difference between an indoor temperature and an outdoor temperature of the compound control zone; and
determining to turn on the ventilating apparatus during a time duration for which the CO2 concentration is greater than a threshold CO2 concentration and the difference is less than a threshold difference.
