Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a radiant floor heating system with a wirsbo control system, i keep having to reset the system to get the zones to heat up again. The broiler is working fine. The first time I reset the radiant heat stayed on for 3 days and this morning it was off and had to reset it again for the zones to kick on again. I am new to all this and want to know where to start before calling someone and having to pay mega money if it is something simple!! Thanks

Is this a water circulating system? If so there are bleeder ports on your radiant heating zones on the floor that you can bleed the air out of the system. They look like a tire air pressure valve. Depress the valve core with a small screwdriver or something of the same nature. You will hear air coming out and water will come out. This is done while system is running. Also it may maybe under pressurized, circulating pump could be shutting down. Does the boiler keep running or shut down on reset. If it does could be within the boiler itself. Please rsvp with more info.

Recently purchased and moved into older home with a hydronic radiant heat system with boiler. Upon running the system in the colder temps, we are hearing a gurgling sound recurring in some of the runs


typically hydronic systems like that need to be bled, start with the highest radiator, the bleed valve have a little square head and you need to have a key that fits them, most supply HVAC houses have them sitting on the counter but you can ask them for one.

Yes, I believe you are correct concerning the circuit panel.

Regarding your heat pump not keeping up ...depending on what part of the country you live in, heat pumps are not the best thing to heat with. As you probably already know, once it reaches 32 degrees outside, the heat pump stops working and the electric furnace or heat strips come on to supply warm air. Frankly, when that happens, it's like turning on your kitchen toaster and blowing air across it with an electric fan. Doesn't sound to efficient does it. Plus, your electric meter is spinning like crazy and the power company is falling in love with you.

In my area (Virginia) most new home construction is now using what's called a dual fuel system. It's a heat pump, but it has a gas furnace backup for when it reaches 35 degrees outdoors. It's very, very efficient and a very comfortable heat. The gas furnace can run on either Natural Gas or Propane Gas.
In most cases this can be added to an existing heat pump system. The only thing necessary is the Gas Furnace, since you already have a heat pump and all the duct work. Could probably be added for a whole lot less than you''d expect.

The other option is to add a vent-free gas fireplace or vent-free gas logs, if you have an existing solid fuel burning fireplace. They are great for zone heating and/or supplemental heating. Plus, if you have a power outage in the middle of the winter, they'll still work, as they don't require any electricity.

I didn't mean to run own, but I hope all this helps you solve your heating problem.
Please let me know.

Heat on one side and cool air out of the other vent, on the floor its the same way. driver side cool and passenger has heat.


There should be a control on door panels,armrest area or dash to set temoerature control for each side. On some of the older models that I've seen there is a control on door panel that has a rotating dial with apointer that goes from a red zone into a blue zone that controls individual temperatures. Hope this helps. Thanks

Goodman with 2 thermostats, freezes in summer, no heat in winter


is the system zoned? if so maybe the zoning control board to the damper motor is wired improperly. when a system freezez its because of 1- restricted air flow across coil, (maybe dirty filter) or 2-low refrigerant charge. again could depend on how its zoned.

Heat on bottom floor no heat on top floor


pretty vague, but i'll give it a shot. i assume that your upper and lower floors are heated by the same unit. of course if your not sure you better check to see if there is a second t stat for up stairs in case there is a second unit that heats it. there may also be a zoning system that seals off upstairs ducts unless the zone stat for that area is calling for heat. so look for a second stat upstairs if you think it may be zoned. now to you original question. lets assume the unit is not zoned and only one unit heats both. then you may have a mechanical damper in the ductwork ,usually located close to the indoor blower that shifts to force more air upstairs in summer and more air downstairs in winter, these can usually be shifted as needed to control air to upper lower and are usually marked upstairs dornstairs etc. if you have no dampers etc, then you have reason to suspect the ductwork has come apart or been crushed before it gets upstairs. you'll have to go up or under the house etc and try to find duct problems.good luck
