When you use a forced air heating and/or cooling system, such as a heat pump, a furnace, or a central air conditioner, you rely upon an extensive system of ductwork in order to distribute heated and cooled air throughout your home. Needless to say, this ductwork must really be kept in fine working condition if it is to function as effectively and reliably as possible. Too often, homeowners fail to realize that their air ducts are the source of the heating and cooling problems that they encounter in their homes. We offer a number of great ductwork services in Tampa, FL to alleviate such problems. Call IERNA’s Heating & Cooling to learn more.

Common Problems That Can Develop with Motorized Dampers

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

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.

What Type of HVAC System is Right for My Riverview Mobile Home?

Monday, October 13th, 2014

You care about comfort in your mobile home, but it can be difficult to find an HVAC system that is the right size. Most heating and air conditioning systems are designed for larger homes, and indoor installation can take up a lot of space. That’s why the folks at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling recommend packaged HVAC systems for mobile homes in Riverview. Bryant offers a full line of packaged air conditioners and heat pumps that are great for cooling and heating mobile homes throughout the year. Learn more about your options in this quick guide.

Bryant Packaged Air Conditioners

Most air conditioners have two main components, an indoor evaporator unit and an outside condenser unit. However, your mobile home may not have space for indoor installation, which is why a packaged air conditioner may be just right for you. Packaged air conditioners combine every component of a central air conditioner into a single cabinet, so it can sit right outside your mobile home and a technician can connect it directly to the ducts.

If you are concerned about the initial cost, Bryant offers an efficient entry-level Legacy series air conditioner or a mid-range Preferred series unit. But for even greater efficiency, you may consider the 15 SEER Evolution packaged AC system to significantly cut cooling costs.

Bryant Packaged Heat Pumps

Alternatively, you might consider a packaged heat pump. Bryant also offers these systems from either the Legacy, Preferred, or Evolution series. A heat pump is a particularly unique system in that it can provide efficient heating and cooling. In the cooling season, it works just like an AC, using refrigerant to absorb heat from your home and circulate cool air through the ducts. When you need heating, refrigerant flows in reverse, pulling heat from the outside air to move into your home. This makes it extremely efficient for heating as it only moves heat rather than generating. And while it may not work well for heating if temperatures drop too low, it’s perfect for the Florida weather.

The specialists at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling are proud installers of Brant HVAC systems for mobile homes in Riverview. Call us today!
