Water Furnace Advanced Controls and Symphony

Precision Comfort Choice #14: Water Furnace Advanced Controls

Choose the level of control and reporting capability for geothermal systems.
Water Furnace 5-Series and 7-Series geothermal systems offer several levels of intelligent controls that help diagnostics, energy monitoring and Wi-Fi connectivity.

 

5-Series only: 
Advanced Control Option:
Primary Feature: Considerations:
1) Aurora Advanced Control (AXB) upgrade The AXB option (especially when combined with an upgraded thermostat) will provide energy monitoring so you can see how much energy the system is using. This option is needed for Intellizone2 zoning and allows the Symphony Wi-Fi option to retrieve much greater information. This is the most popular level of controls for Water Furnace Systems. Tracking your actual energy usage is easy.
Are you zoning your home?
Are you installing the Water Furnace Wi-Fi Symphony option?
2) Aurora Performance Package upgrade
The Performance Package involves more sensors in your system for more data collection. This option greatly increases the diagnostic abilities for the technician. Ever wonder if your heating and cooling system is working properly? This option will show you air temperatures, loop temps and loop pressures.
3) Aurora Refrigeration Package upgrade
The Refrigeration Package has even more sensors for more data including refrigeration temps, refrigerant pressures, etc. When Performance monitoring and Refrigeration monitoring is combined with Symphony Wi-Fi, a technician can actually diagnose problems remotely.

 

7-Series only:
Advanced Control Option:
Primary Feature: Considerations:
The 7-Series geothermal system comes standard with the AXB and Refrigeration Package  If you choose the variable speed compressor, 7-Series geothermal system, it will already include the Aurora AXB control and the sensors that monitor refrigeration performance. Especially if you are zoning your home, the 7-Series Water Furnace system with these standard features will maximize your home comfort.
1) Aurora Performance Package upgrade
The Performance Package is the only additional option for the 7 Series. It involves more sensors in your system for more data collection. This option greatly increases the diagnostic abilities for the technician. Ever wonder if your heating and cooling system is working properly? This option will show you air temperatures, loop temps and loop pressures.

 

Water Furnace Symphony, Wi-Fi based Home Comfort Platform:

Add the web enabled Symphony platform to any of the advance control options above and you can remotely monitor home temperature and perform thermostat functions remotely. Of equal value is the ability for your system to send service alerts to you and/or the service technician. With the best options chosen, a technician is able to diagnose your system remotely if there is a problem.
With advanced Aurora Controls and Symphony, you can also remotely monitor other items in your home. Most popular is the water alarm to notify you of a sump pump failure or other water related events.
The Symphony web platform offers many graphs and views of your energy usages and other important information.
Note: The items you (or a technician) can monitor remotely will depend on the Aurora package you chose above.
