Is All Thermostat Wire the Same? Jackson Systems Answers That Question.

So, what can we say about thermostat wire other than, “it works like it supposed to…?” Well, a lot, actually.

Wiring zoning systems, thermostats or other HVAC components can be a dirty, tedious and complicated job. You’ll only want to do one time, which is why you should want your wire to be the best quality available.

Jackson Systems now sells premium Honeywell Genesis wiring!  When it comes to high-performance, low-voltage cable for your HVAC applications, Jackson Systems has you covered by providing cabling that not only works, but is of the best quality and dependability to provide results you (and your customers) can count on.

With Honeywell Genesis wire, you will enjoy these fine features:

  1. It is on a spool instead of in a box so it is easier to pull without knotting.
  2. It has marker numbers printed on the outer jacket indicating the length in feet so you can easily see how much you’ve used on a job…and how much is left on the spool.
  3. It strips easy because it comes with a pull string.
  4. It doesn’t stink…it has a pleasant odor.
  5. ENJOY HONEYWELL CONTRACTOR PRO POINTS WITH THE PURCHASE OF THIS WIRE!

In addition, Honeywell Genesis wire has great flexibility. You can run it from point A to point B quite easily. And, the wire can be joined using wire nuts, crimp connectors or screw terminals. Technicians know these can be big pluses, especially if you are working with wiring day in and day out.

So, the answer to the question “Is all thermostat wire the same?” is a resounding “No. It most definitely is not!” When it comes to the wiring of thermostat controls, zoning systems, heating and air conditioning equipment and other low voltage applications, there is no better wire than Honeywell Genesis.

Much like other Honeywell products, Honeywell Genesis Wire purchases qualify for Contractor Pro Points. Enjoy this bonus plus the convenience of one-stop shopping for all controls- related accessories at Jackson Systems. Here’s how you can order: https://jacksonsystems.com/category/thermostat-wire-2.html or call your Jackson Systems representative at 888-652-9663.

In The NEWS: Our Zone ESP, a “Must See” Product

Never install another bypass damper!

Jackson Systems’ ESP-400 maintains system static pressure without the need for a conventional bypass damper.

The system works like any standard zone control system with one exception. As zone dampers open and close, the ESP-400 module continuously monitors the system static pressure and if required, sends a signal to the zone dampers that are in the closed position to open to a point where the proper static pressure level is maintained.

  • Works with an existing zone panel
  • It’s easy to install
  • Lowers labor and installation cost
  • Eliminates “tight space” issues
  • Factory set (easy to adjust)
  • Prevents coil freeze up
  • Eliminates air noise

The APC In-duct Smoke Detector

Building codes are written and enforced because they protect the public’s most important concerns: health, safety and environment. They also are written to protect efficiencies and investments values. Because commercial HVAC systems can be a source for smoke and toxic gases traveling through the duct system, in-duct smoke detectors have become a code-enforced method for monitoring the dangers. The International Mechanical Code, NFPA 90A: Standard for the Installation of HVAC and NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code are two such codes that provide critical protection against smoke and toxic gases from the HVAC system from being released into the airflow of a building via the duct system.

Jackson Systems supplies the APC Duct Smoke Detector as a way to alert to early detection of smoke present in the air moving through HVAC ducts in commercial, industrial, and residential applications. The APC Duct Smoke Detector is designed to prevent the recirculation or spread of smoke by air handling systems, fans and blowers.

The APC Duct Smoke Detector continuously “samples” the air in the duct work to ensure it does not exceed safe readings. Should unsafe levels of smoke be measured, the smoke detector shuts down the operations of the system including closing dampers, stopping fans and notifying of the danger.

To monitor levels of smoke in buildings, air sampling tubes are inserted into the duct work. Air sampling tubes come in many sizes and must be properly fitted to their ducts. The sampling tubes must extend between 2/3rds and 80% of the duct width (see illustration). Know that ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL to meet code. Remember: codes are not just guidelines, they are the law!

The APC Duct Smoke Detector should be connected to the building’s smoke alarm system in accordance with NFPA 72. They work WITH traditional smoke alarm systems and are not intended to REPLACE them. To install, first identify a code compliant location (supply or return side, or both) for the installation of the duct unit that will permit easy access for viewing and serviceability. Note that to minimize the impact of air turbulence and stratification on performance, the APC Duct Smoke Detector should be located as far as possible downstream from any obstruction (i.e. deflector plates, elbows, dampers, etc.). In all situations, confirmation of velocity and pressure differential within specifications is required. After the installation of the duct smoke detector, it is important to have an inspection from Code Enforcement. And, on a regular basis when the building’s traditional smoke alarms are inspected, so should this in-duct system. This keeps your occupants safe and keeps you in compliance with codes.

For more information on the APC Duct Smoke Detector, visit https://jacksonsystems.com/products/apc-duct-smoke-detector-1.html. To order, give your Jackson Systems representative a call at 888-652-9663.

1 in 8 Homes Has a Programmable Thermostat…

…but even for those households that use central air conditioning and have a programmable thermostat, more than two-thirds of them control temperatures without actually programming the thermostat.
In a 2015 survey, respondents were asked how they set indoor temperatures during the summer. Almost half (45%) of households using central air-conditioning units said they set the thermostat at one temperature and left it there most of the time. The second most common approach was to manually adjust the temperature at night or when no one was at home (26%). Using a programmable thermostat to automatically adjust indoor temperatures was the third most common approach (18%), and it was more common than manually turning equipment on or off as needed (11%).

Why Repeat Business is So Important…And How Jackson Systems Can Help!

A surprisingly often overlooked “new” source of revenue is repeat business. New, in that repeat business is known to increase revenue at least 20% year over year. (Source: https://www.businessknowhow.com/marketing/new-customers.htm)

Your homeowners and commercial customers are more likely to call you if you leave them your information because they already know and trust you versus someone randomly selected from the Yellow Pages. But, people move. People forget. People quit their jobs and they lose your information. Whatever the reason, if they don’t contact you, you lose that easy sale. Make your contact information readily available to your customers so you keep that business. (We’ll get back to this in a moment).

Repeat business also decreases the cost of lead generation. How? Having a customer return means not having to spend money to attract a new one. Customers who come back are returning at a premium to you because there is no acquisition cost associated with them. Costs you would have had to spend to attract this customer is foregone and can go right to the bottom line of your sale.

It gets even better! Customers who return will likely spend more with you over time. With repeat business, you have gained their trust. You have become their “HVAC partner.” As such, you will be rewarded with additional revenue from a greater lifetime value for that customer…that is, as long as you maintain that trust with good and ethical service.

Finally, what we all know is that happy customers refer businesses they trust to friends, family and workmates. This grows your referral business…and so could this be repeat business.

So, how is it that Jackson Systems can help you with your repeat business? It’s quite simple actually!

STOP THEM AT THE STAT!

Jackson Systems’ imprinted thermostats are a best bet to growing a contractor’s repeat business. Our thermostats printed with your logo and phone number is a step you should take with every stat you install. Honeywell states that “homeowners look at the thermostat on average 12 times a week.” We believe it to be more!  But, knowing that, you can now understand the value of leaving your mark on their thermostat. It’s like having your marketing team in your customers home all day, everyday!

All you have to do to make this happen is to order your thermostats from Jackson Systems. It’s really that simple!

Jackson Systems manufacturers private label thermostats that rival all others on the market. We also distribute name brands thermostats direct-to-contractor including Honeywell, Braeburn, White Rodgers, Pro IAQ, Nest, Ecobee and so many more. Check out our comprehensive thermostat offering here: https://jacksonsystems.com/category/thermostats.html

Jackson Systems: Controls Done Right!

FilterFetch Wins Silver Dealer Design Award in Contractor Services and Software Category from The NEWS

FilterFetch is proud to announce our Dealer Design Silver Award for our innovative app technology.

The NEWS writes:

Two years of research went into creating this free software service that allows HVAC contractors to sell filters to clients without having to stock them. Contractors can sign up with FilterFetch, and, upon doing so, they receive a unique contractor code. Jackson Systems provides contractors with all the literature and training needed. Contractors then promote the service to their clients and provide them with the codes they need to complete the sale.

The company used survey results and feedback from interviews to determine that many HVAC contractors are frustrated by losing out on filter sales to online outlets and big-box stores, according to Tom Jackson, CEO, Jackson Systems. As a result, the FilterFetch website and contractor app was created with HVAC techs in mind. Contractors can setup their profile with FilterFetch and adjust their profits from within their dashboards. Techs no longer have to stock filters on their trucks, which reduces the occurrence of damaged filters. A year’s supply of filters are delivered to the homeowner, so they are ready and available during routine maintenance calls. This creates a steady revenue stream as each contractor has a unique code to track sales.

Moving forward, Jackson Systems plans to continue to take contractors’ suggestions on how to improve the website as well as launch an app for consumers that provides homeowners the ease and convenience of ordering right from their phones.
