Ecobee4 Enhances Patient Experience at This Doctor’s Office

Ortho El Paso is a small private practice with “patient-centered” care. And, says the doctor who owns the practice, that doesn’t only include treatment and medical care, “we are always thinking about their comfort and patient experience!”

“We want our patients to come to our office and immediately feel comfortable to try to ease their anxiety and pain,” says Dr. Jason Vourazeris, orthopaedic surgeon at Ortho El Paso. “Giving them a waiting room and viewing spaces that are clean, comfortable and provide soothing music via the ecobee4 thermostat helps us achieve that,” he says.

Not just that, Ortho El Paso has enjoyed more comfort control and utility savings since installing their smart thermostats because of the indoor sensors that come with the ecobee4’s. The sensors allow them to adjust the temperature set-points in the office based on schedules. There are two days a week that the doctor is in surgery all day long at the hospital and doesn’t come in to his practice location. By programming the ecobee4’s and using the sensors for the temperature set-points on those days, Ortho El Paso keeps office staff comfortable while saving energy on unused spaces, like the viewing rooms or the doctor’s private office.

One of the coolest features of the ecobee4 is that it comes with built-in Amazon Alexa and can sinc to a playlist to play music right from the thermostat. “The patients love this feature…and so does the staff!” says Dr. V. “Most doctor offices don’t have streaming music in the viewing rooms, which make the patients a bit restless and nervous. By playing light music from the ecobee4, we have found patients are a bit less anxious,” says the doctor.

12 Rules of Thumb for Zoning Installations

HVAC technologies have come a long way in recent years. This positive change has mostly been driven to meet the demands of a savvier, more efficiency-hungry, comfort-craving homeowner. Now, contractors must look beyond the HVAC equipment itself when trying to satisfy this customer.

Zoning is a solution that is winning new install business for contractors across the country. Zoning goes beyond the traditional stop-start operation of forced air heating and cooling to provide targeted, efficient air supply in a home when and where it is needed most. But not just that, zoning helps keep utility costs in check because it doesn’t “waste energy” by trying to heat and cool the entire home to one temperature set point. Zoning targets areas of the home and allows for varying temperatures. To put it simply, air is supplied at the desired temperature when and where it is called for.

When installed properly, zoning can provide the ultimate comfort system. But, zoning does have to follow certain rules to deliver what is promised when installed. The following 12 Technical Rules of Thumb for Installation of Zoning provides those guidelines for best practices of a zoning installation.

Zoning Systems Best Practices

The 13th point of zoning may be to buy it when it’s on sale! For the month of February, Jackson Systems is offering a 10% discount on all purchases of iO zoning! Use promo code: 10ZONETR10 when ordering.

How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

Jackson Systems offers this post to share with your customers to prevent frozen pipes during the Polar Vortex:

6 ways to prevent pipes from freezing

  1. Trickle hot or cold water. Let warm water drip overnight, preferably from a faucet on an outside wall.
  2. Set the thermostat in your house no lower than 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to pipes under sinks and appliances that are near exterior walls.
  4. Disconnect garden hoses if you haven’t already. And, if possible, use an indoor valve to shut off and drain water from pipes leading to outside faucets. This reduces the chance of freezing in the short span of pipe just inside the house.
  5. Seal leaks that allow cold air inside near where pipes are located. Look for air leaks around electrical wiring, dryer vents, and pipes, and use caulk or insulation to keep the cold out. With severe cold, even a tiny opening can let in enough cold air to cause a pipe to freeze.
  6. Get a Wi-Fi freeze detector so you know immediately the moment your pipes are being compromised. https://jacksonsystems.com/products/lyric-wifi-water-leak-freeze-detector.html

AZ Contractor Finds Solution for Wiring Nightmare in the iO Wireless Relay

A recent call of distress about a wiring issue for a rooftop installation of a 2-stage HVAC system was received in our Customer Service department. The contractor was converting an evaporative cooler to a packaged air conditioning unit in Tucson. However, the conversion was going to be a wiring nightmare because of corroded and missing wires. The contractor hadn’t included a total rewire for this project in his original estimate and he was in need of a quick and easy solution.

“That solution,” said our engineer, “is the iO Wireless Relay! And, know you can use as many in one installation as you need!”

The iO Systems Wireless Relay is perfect for situations where you can’t run wire or the existing wire between two devices because they are missing, cut or damaged. With the iO Wireless Relay, two devices can communicate wirelessly–not by Wi-Fi or internet, but by RF satellite technology.

The iO Wireless Relay System consists of 2 units; a Transceiver Module and a Satellite Transceiver Module. The base WRSM transceiver is equipped with 3 digital input channels and 1 relay output channel. The satellite transceiver has 1 digital input and 3 relay output channels. The digital inputs are compatible with most HVAC systems.

The iO-WR communicates on the 915 z frequency band. Each transceiver module uses a redundant transmission protocol for fail-safe protection. If either module does not receive a valid “ON” or “OFF” transmission signal within 60 seconds, the output(s) will be turned off.

Specifications

  • Power: 24 , 2.8 VAC VA
  • Channels: Base: 3 Send – 1 Receive Satellite: 3 Receive – 1 Send
  • Contact Rating: 1 Amp per channel Frequency: 915 z
  • Operation MH Range: Up to 100 ft.
  • Dimensions: 2-5/8” W x 5-1/8” H x 1-1/8

Installation is Easy

Both the base and satellite transceivers require continuous 24 VAC iO- Base WRBM Transceiver Module

  1. Mount the iO- Base WRBM Transceiver on a non-metalic surface in a location that allows access to the thermostat wiring at the indoor unit. Do not mount inside the unit cabinet or inside any metal enclosure as this will greatly impede transmission distance.
  2. Once the base transceiver is mounted, take the access cover off by removing the two screws. Refer to the iO- wiring diagram. WRBM
  3. Use only 18-gauge solid (not stranded) thermostat wire. When connecting wires to the transceiver terminals, strip approximately 1/4” of insulation and push wire into designated terminal. Do not over-tighten the mounting screws.

Compliance

The iO- Wireless Relay System has been tested and complies with WR limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the Rules of the FCC. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.

For more information on iO Wireless Relay, visit https://jacksonsystems.com/products/io-wireless-relay.html or call your Jackson Systems representative at 888-652-9663 to order.

Service Technicians: The Superheroes of HVAC

Preparation and prevention is the key to avoiding cold-related injuries.

As we experience the first major cold spell of the new year, much of the northern portion of our country finds itself in a deep freeze. Today, our immediate concern is for the service techs who are making repairs, in-out-under-around the house in the freezing temperatures. It will be important for #technicians to pay closer attention to changes they experience with their bodies while working in the extremely cold temperatures.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) offers these essential safety tips for all outdoor workers: https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/coldstress/default.html

Thank you service techs and be safe!

4 Myths with Forced Air Zoning (And How to Fix Them)

On this episode of Field Engineering Live, we sit down with over 100 contractors from across the Americas to dispel common myths with forced air zoning.

JD Brake and Phil Kimble tackle common topics our team gets asked all the time when it comes to zoning. Some of those include:

When do you need a bypass?

How to repair a broken zoning system?

What type of dampers works best?

In what situations will Zoning not work?

Pneumatic Vs. Electronic

Zones close. Static pressure rises. Learn here how to balance a barometric bypass damper.

On a recent episode of Field Engineering, host JD Brake talks with Jackson Systems Engineer, Phil Kimble, about the “Barometric Bypass Damper”.

In a constant volume HVAC system, you have a fixed static pressure. Air moves at a designed velocity, a designed CFM, and a designed static pressure rate. (Static pressure has everything to do with being able to push air through the ductwork). When you add a zone control system, you need to counter balance the static pressure by installing a bypass damper. Watch as Kimble talks about best practices, common installation mistakes, and how to properly balance the bypass damper. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSJUQ2qEb3w&feature=youtu.be
