Geothermal System Design

For geothermal heating, every home is different… specific calculations must be made for each installation. A “Manual J” heat load calculation will be figured according to the construction of your home, insulation, window area, and other heat or cooling factors. We will compute the exact needs of your installation in order to give you maximum performance with the lowest possible operating cost.

Requirements will also be calculated for accurate sizing of the air distribution system for each room to assure constant temperature and humidity control and comfort. Heat loss, heat gain, or cooling load will be weighed with accurate, tested measurements so that the right amount of air at the proper temperature and humidity level reaches all rooms.
Undersizing
Undersized equipment often leads to inadequate heat or cooling so severe that rooms are either too warm or too cold. Unit life may be shortened because the equipment is operating at maximum capacity continuously.
Oversizing
Oversizing leads to long on and off periods then sudden blasts of hot or cold air with inconsistent room temperature and humidity levels. Cost of operation is high and frequent service bills possible.
Accurate Sizing
Comfortable temperature and humidity levels are constant, reducing operating and service costs, and increasing the life of the unit.

The Benefits of Zoning

Comfort
• Solves the problem of rooms that are too cold or too hot
• Allows you to set the temperature you want, when you want it, where you want it
Conservation
• Only condition occupied zones
• Save up to 30% when combined with programmable thermostats
Convenience
• Flexibility of a thermostat in each zone
• No need to return to the dining room to adjust the thermostat for the whole house

Some Rooms TOO Hot…
Other Rooms TOO Cold?
The Solution is Zoning
Are you tired of some rooms being too cold while others are too hot? Do you find yourself constantly fiddling with the thermostat, space heaters and fans? You wouldn’t have one light switch for your entire house, why have one thermostat?
Zoning offers the easy, affordable, economical solution. Zoning is simply a way of dividing your home into areas with similar heating and cooling requirement, with each zone being controlled by its own thermostat.
Every home has at least two zones; the living area and sleeping area, which are seldom used at the same time. Others are typically divided between upstairs and downstairs; master and kid’s bedrooms, formal living room, dining room, family room and kitchen. Each area is often occupied at different times and has different heating and cooling loads. The result is total comfort, no matter where you are inside your home.
Energy Savings You Can Bank On!
When combined with programmable thermostats, Zoning allows you to conserve energy, up to 30% which can add up to hundreds of dollars in savings per year.
How Does Zoning Work?
Each zone in your home has dampers in your ductwork that open or shut based on your heating/cooling requirements. These dampers are controlled through the thermostat for that particular zone. When you don’t need to condition the air, you save energy because the dampers close the ductwork in that zone of your house. If you combine your system with automatic setback thermostats, you’ll save even more money because you can program each thermostat to automatically provide different temperatures during various times of the day. This truly provides the temperature you want… where you want it… when you want it.
Who would install a zone control system?
Typically 2-story homes with large square footage. A representative from Buschur’s Refrigeration can help you determine if a zone system is right for you.

High Performance Ductwork

Toughgard® Duct Board with Enhanced Surface
