Can a Geothermal System Have Zone Controls?

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

Zone control systems allow a homeowner to manipulate the comfort in different rooms (or “zones”) so that the AC or heater doesn’t have to provide conditioned air for the whole house each time it comes on. The way that zone control works is through a series of dampers placed within the ductwork which can seal off air flow to a section of the ducts leading to a particular vent. Local thermostats control each of the dampers, and the thermostats all connect through a central control panel. The homeowner can manipulate all of the zones with the central controls, while other people can adjust the temperature in whatever room they’re in to suit them.

Geothermal Guide: The Installation Process

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Geothermal systems are one of the most efficient heating and cooling options available to homeowners. However, the installation process for geothermal systems is very involved and should always be done by a professional. The Wake Forest, NC geothermal installation experts at Raleigh Heating & Air offer complete services for many different brands of geothermal systems. We wanted to provide a quick description of what the installation process is actually like.

The installation process for geothermal systems is much more involved than a traditional AC system. Geothermal air conditioning and heating systems require that a long series of coils be installed on your property. These coils can be buried in the ground or installed in a body of water like a lake, pond or stream. The first step of the installation process is to determine if your property meets the necessary requirements for a geothermal system.

If your home does indeed have the space for a ground-source geothermal system or if you have consistent access to a body of water, the installation process can move forward. Our geothermal experts will work with you to find the right-sized heat pump, the equipment that will actually be installed in your home.  Our specialists will work with you to design a system for your home that matches your heating and cooling needs as well as your budget.

After those 2 critical steps, the geothermal professionals at Raleigh Heating & Air can begin the actual installation process. Our technicians are highly trained and will be able to get your new system installed so that it will work well and last for as long as possible. If you are interested in installing a geothermal system in your Wake Forest, NC home, give Raleigh Heating & Air a call today!
