Common Problems That Can Develop with Motorized Dampers

Zone control systems are great for conserving energy and achieving customized comfort throughout your home, but occasionally the system can encounter problems. Should a problem develop with your zone control system, it’s best to call an expert for help as the mechanized damper system can be complex. The expert’s at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling have been installing and repairing zone control systems for over 10 years, and we bring this experience to every zone control system repair we have, including the New Port Richey area.

How a Zone Control System Works

Zone control systems are actually a series of dampers installed directly into your supply ducts. Once you and your technician have established the zones in your home, the technician will install the dampers according to the zone plan. The dampers are wired to a main control panel to which each zone’s thermostat is also wired. The main control panel can then maintain each zone’s set temperature by controlling the opening and closing of each damper.

Type of Problems

Here are some of the kinds of problems that can develop with a zone control system:

Problems with a zone thermostat – thermostats can malfunction due to dust and dirt on the instrumentation, incorrect calibration or dying batteries. Thermostats should always be the first place to look when encountering problems with your zone system as thermostats are the control centers for each zone.

Problems with the dampers – sometimes the dampers of the motorized damper component can become stuck, prohibiting the damper from opening and closing as needed. A technician will know how to get into your supply ductwork to determine and repair the problematic damper.

Problems with the main control panel – the main control panel in the system is responsible for taking the information from each zone’s thermostat and controlling the operation of the dampers so that the set temperatures can be maintained. Should there be issues with wiring, electricity or anything else that can interfere with the correct operation of the control panel, problems will likely develop with the system.

As you can see, there is a level of complication to a zone control system, which is why hiring an expert for your zone control system repair in New Port Richey is always the best option.
