2. Use vibration isolators (flex connectors) on zone dampers and
duct work to minimize noise.
Shielding For A Single Comfort Zone System
1. Fig. 16 Shows a Comfort Zone System with all possible
options. The shield from all devices should be tied together at
I/O board and terminated at shield ground at lower right hand
corner of board. Be sure shielding does not touch any other
wiring on board.
3. Place dampers away from areas that may be noise sensitive.
4. TXV is required in air conditioning and heat pump applications.
5. Use separate isolated transformer to supply power to Comfort
Zone System (50 va minimum, class 2, field supplied).
NOTE: Do not connect shield wire at device end. Cut end and
tape up to avoid shorting.
6. Load calculations must be performed to determine equipment
size. Equipment selection is matched to block load. It is
imperative equipment is not oversized.
Shielding For Multiple Comfort Zone Systems
1. If more than 1 Comfort Zone System resides on 1 job, they
may be tied together for communication purposes. If no
communication is required, then Comfort Zone System should
be wired separate and shielded as previously stated.
7. Duct work must be designed based off the sum of peaks plus
25 percent oversize. It is imperative duct work is not undersized.
INTRODUCTION
This installation guide pertains to revision 1.6 or greater. The
Comfort Zone System allows air conditioning and heating equipment to control temperatures in up to 4 distinct spaces or Zones
within a building. Each zone has independent temperature settings.
The comfort temperature settings can change automatically
through the use of schedules. This allows Comfort Zone to change
temperature settings in zones to reflect occupancy or usage. For
example, you can condition the bedrooms in a home from 5:00 PM
through 7:00 AM or the kitchen from 3:00 PM through 6:00 PM.
The Comfort Zone System uses motorized air volume control
dampers (also called zone dampers) to regulate flow of conditioned air into zones. In this manner Comfort Zone can selectively
heat or cool certain portions of a building depending upon space
temperature requirements.
2. When 2 to 4 systems are on 1 job and require communication,
they should be daisy chained together through 3-wire communication bus at COM BUS HAM terminal.The shielding
should only be grounded at 1 point on end of communication
bus as shown in Fig. 2.

1. Use butt splices, or solder, for shield connections. Then tape up shield.
2. Do not connect the shield drain wire at the end of Communication Bus.
Cut and tape up to avoid shorting.
INSPECT EQUIPMENT — File claim with shipping company,
prior to installation, if shipment is damaged or incomplete.
A93251
Step 2—Wiring
Fig. 2—Daisy-Chained Comfort Zone Systems
3. If more than 4 systems are used on 1 job, multiple device
buses must be used. Each device bus must be separated by an
ISOSAT-01. A typical arrangement is shown in Fig. 3.
To prevent personal injury or possible equipment damage
disconnect power supply before routing wire.
All wiring must comply with local and state codes.
Communication Bus Guidelines for Maximum Number of
Devices
NOTE: A remote room sensor requires a 2-wire cable, however,
it is recommended that a 5-wire cable be installed to allow for a
possible smart sensor upgrade. Connect white wire to terminal
labeled B- if a 5-wire cable is used. Connect red wire to R+.
Shielded cable is recommended to reduce noise interference.
1. The maximum number of Comfort Zone Systems allowed on
1 device bus is 4.
2. Four Zone Controllers must be addressed 4 addresses apart,
example 4, 8, 12, 16 for a device bus with 4 Comfort Zone
Systems.
NOTE: Use No. 22 AWG color-coded, insulated (35°C min)
wire. If thermostats are to be located more than 100 ft from
Comfort Zone Center as measured along control voltage wires, use
18 AWG colored-coded wires to avoid excessive voltage drop.
3. Home Access Module (optional) will scan a maximum of 4
Comfort Zone Systems.
All wiring is run back to Comfort Zone Center. Keep wires a
minimum of 12 in. from any AC voltage. Do not tie-wrap wires
together. When wiring to COM BUS, a 3-wire cable must be
separate from the 5-wire cable. The thermostats should be located
approximately 5 ft above floor and must be located within 200 ft
of Comfort Zone Center.
4. Multiple device buses can be tied together for communication
via ISOSAT-01. An ISOSAT-02 is required for remote or
direct communications via personal computer or modem. (See
Fig. 4.)
5. Comfort Zone Systems may reside on a bus with VVT system
devices. They may receive or broadcast time to these devices
accordingly by toggling T5 enable broadcast on or off.
SHIELDED CABLE
General
NOTE: If multiple 4-zone controllers are on 1 bus, only 1 can
broadcast time. Turn all others off (T5).
1. All wiring should be shielded (except damper wiring) with 18
or 22 gage. The 3-wire, 5-wire, and Remote Sensor wire must
be in separate jacketed cable.
2. All system wiring must be within 1 building. Never connect
devices between 2 or more buildings.

Step 4—Install Zone Dampers
Step 3—Install Comfort Zone Center
NOTE: The Comfort Zone System is approved for indoor use
only and should never be installed with any of its components
exposed to the elements. The enclosure must be installed with
center cover to help prevent damage from other sources. Do not
mount Comfort Zone Center where it will be accessible to
children. Do not locate center in areas of the home that are noise
sensitive since relays are energized and de-energized during
operation and may be an annoyance. Install Comfort Zone in an
area with a temperature range between 32°F and 120° F.
Install Comfort Zone Center in either a vertical or horizontal
position. Locate in an area that is easily accessible in case
servicing should be required.
NOTE: Four vent plugs and 2 bushings have been supplied. Snap
bushings in the 1-in. diameter holes that are to be used for wiring
and place plugs in remaining holes.
IMPORTANT: If conditions exist for possible condensing, motor
must be positioned for adequate draining. (See Fig. 6.)
NOTE: If a multi-damper enabler is used to link dampers
together, add 5va per damper to the transformer power supply
rating. Reference multi-damper enabler Installation Instructions.
Zone dampers may be installed in any direction.
Install dampers so that actuator is visible for inspection and
accessible in the event it would ever need to be serviced. The black
mark on the end of damper shaft represents the position of damper
blade.
NOTE: Insulate damper using 1-1/2 in. insulation (check local
codes). In areas where excessive condensing may occur, carefully
insulate over the actuator assembly. Make sure insulation does not
interfere with operation of actuator.

Step 5—Install Barometric Bypass Damper
NOTE: The barometric bypass damper is a critical part of
Comfort Zone System for control of minimum airflow and noise
reduction. It is recommended that the bypass be installed.
The bypass should be installed according to local codes and
SMACNA standards. Be sure bypass is properly supported.
Fig 12—Round Flexible Duct Work
For proper installation, refer to Installation Instructions packaged
with barometric bypass.
A95132
2. Secure flexible duct to zone damper using SMACNA or other
approved method.
Failure to properly install bypass damper can cause permanent damage to the HVAC equipment. For single speed
furnace applications bypass air must never exceed 25 percent.
3. Properly seal joint using duct tape, mastic, or other approved
method. Do not allow mastic to come in contact with actuator.
4. Insulate damper using 1-1/2-in. to 2-in. insulation. (Check
your local codes.)
Step 6—Install Duct Temperature Sensor
Locate duct temperature sensor in main supply trunk after heating
and cooling coil and before bypass damper and first branch. The
duct temperature sensor must be radiant shielded to prevent heat
from affecting correct air temperature.
NOTE: All zone dampers and duct work must be properly
supported according to local codes or SMACNA standards.
RECTANGULAR FIBROUS GLASS DUCT WORK
1. Insert 1 end of zone damper into 1 end of fibrous glass duct
work approximately 2- to 3-in. (See Fig. 14.)
1. Drill a 7/8-in. hole at location in unit where sensor will be
installed.
2. Screw field-supplied screws and tabs into zone damper.
2. Remove cover and insert sensor probe through 7/8-in. hole.
3. Properly seal joint using duct tape, mastic, or other approved
method. Do not allow mastic to come in contact with actuator.
3. Drill two 1/16-in. holes to accept No. 6 screws through
pre-drilled holes in duct temperature sensor back plate.
4. Insulate damper using 1-1/2-in. to 2-in. insulation. (Check
your local codes.)
4. Use two No. 6 sheet metal screws included with sensor to
mount duct temperature sensor back plate to unit.

3. Connect black or white wire to terminal labeled B- and
connect red wire to terminal labeled R+.
4. Align sensor case with base plate then press firmly until cover
snaps into place.
Step 10—Sequence of Operation
TEMPERATURE SETPOINTS
The Comfort Zone System uses 2 temperature setpoints. The
setpoints are displayed in the left-hand window on the 4 zone
controller. (See Fig. 18.)
In display window, cooling setpoint is shown on upper left and
heating setpoint is shown on lower right.
The temperature setpoints for any of the 4 zones can be displayed
by the 4 zone controller. When the 4 zone controller rotary switch
points to zone 1, setpoints for zone 1 at the 4 zone controller are
displayed. Selecting zone 2, zone 3, or zone 4 will display
setpoints for each of these zones which use either remote room
sensors or smart sensors. The system is not required to have all 4
zones installed.
HEATING AND COOLING COMFORT SETPOINTS
If space temperature is between heating and cooling setpoints for
the zone, then the zone is said to be "satisfied" with respect to
temperatures. When a zone is "satisfied" no heating or cooling
equipment will turn on to condition the space. For example, if
cooling setpoint is 76°F and heating setpoint is 72°F, then a space
temperature of 73°F is assumed to be satisfactory and no heating
or cooling of zone is required.
If space temperature in a zone falls below heating setpoint, then
that zone needs to have heat added to zone which will raise space
temperature back to heating setpoint. For example, if heating
setpoint is 72°F and space temperature is 70°F, then space
temperature must be raised 2 degrees in order for zone to be
satisfied. In this case, temperature "heating demand" for zone is
2°F. (72°F minus 70°F.)
Otherwise, if space temperature in a zone rises above cooling
setpoint, then that zone needs to have heat removed from zone
which will lower space temperature back to cooling setpoint. For
example, if cooling setpoint is 76°F and space temperature is 77°F,
space temperature must be lowered 1° in order for zone to be
satisfied. In this case, "cooling demand" for zone is 1°F. (77°F
minus 76°F.)
Comfort Zone allows owner or installer to set ranges for comfort
setpoints along with maximum and minimum temperatures which
can be used by system.
Comfort Zone allows both heating and cooling comfort setpoints
to operate in a 14° span. The heating and cooling temperature
"spans" can be set to allow for a selected range of operation.
Rotary switch position 9 sets base temperatures for both heating
and cooling spans.
When switch is set to 9, both heating and cooling base temperatures are displayed and each can be modified by using up/down
setpoint buttons. The base temperatures are the same for all 4
zones.
If cooling base temperature is set to 68°F, then cooling comfort
range will be 68°F to 82°F. If heating base temperature is set to
54°F, then heating comfort range will be 54°F to 68°F.
5. Insert 2-conductor wiring through 1 of pre-drilled holes in side
of back plate.
6. Connect sensor to 2-wire conductor using provided wire nuts.
(See Fig. 16 for connection to Comfort Zone Center.)
Step 7—Install Dx Coil Sensor
The Dx coil temperature sensor is recommended for use in heat
pump with fan coil applications only. The sensor should be
installed between Dx coil and electric heaters. It measures Dx coil
temperature and adds extra protection for high/low temperature
limits. The range is from 30°F to 180°F. The Dx coil sensor
interfaces to Comfort Zone Center on terminal TB-1. (See Fig. 16.)
To activate Dx coil temperature sensor turn T-27 on. When
activated, the Dx coil sensor has built-in LAT setpoints of 50°F
and 45°F in the cooling mode, and 105°F and 110°F in the heating
mode. This is non-adjustable.
Step 8—Install Four Zone Controller
The Four Zone Controller is the zone 1 thermostat. It is recommended to locate this in the zone occupied as the living room or
family room for maximum comfort.
DO NOT locate controller where supply air can blow directly on
it. Avoid locating controller where heat from any lamps, appliances, or direct sunlight will affect temperature sensor on controller. Do not locate on an outside wall or next to a return air grill.
1. Separate base plate from main body of controller.
2. Pull 3-wire cable for communication bus and 5-wire cable for
controller through 3/4-in. round hole on base plate. Three-wire
cable and 5-wire cable must be separate jacketed wiring. Do
not use one 8-wire cable. (See Fig. 17.)
NOTE: Insulate or seal field wiring feed through hole to reduce
draft.
3. Mount base plate using provided screws, starting screw in
round hole first then second screw in slotted hole. On drywall
it is recommended to use provided plastic wall anchors.
NOTE: If mounting controller using an electrical box, mount base
plate using pair of horizontal holes.
4. Level base plate and tighten screw in slotted hole first, then
the screw in round hole.
5. Connect the 3 wires for communication bus and the 5 wires for
controller to base plate terminal screws. (See Fig. 16.) Ensure
that there are no excess or bare wires exposed.
6. Plug base plate connector into back of main body and ensure
it is secure into connector located on back of 4 zone
controller’s main body. Ensure connectors and main body are
secure.
7. Align main body with base plate and snap into place.
Step 9—Install Remote Room Sensors or
Smart Sensors (Optional)
Comfort Zone may have up to 4 zones. The 4 zone controller
controls zone 1. Remote room sensors or smart sensors control the
other 3 zones. If using a smart sensor, a smart sensor power pack
must be used. The remote sensors should be located 5 ft above the
floor and must be less than 200 ft away from Comfort Zone Center.
DO NOT locate sensors where supply air can blow directly on
them. Avoid locating sensors where heat from any lamps, appliances, or direct sunlight will affect temperature sensor on room
sensors. Do not locate on an outside wall or next to a return air
grill.
1. Separate the 2 parts of sensor and mount back plate with
provided flat-head screw.
2. Pull a 2-wire conductor through hole on right-hand side.

set the Base Temperatures prior to programming the system
schedules.
First, Comfort Zone will select a reference zone in the system. The
reference zone will be zone with greatest demand. The zone
damper serving reference zone will be forced fully open and will
remain fully open as long as that zone is used as reference.
Comfort Zone also uses a minimum temperature and a maximum
temperature for comfort setpoints. The minimum and maximum
temperatures are the same for all 4 zones.
As long as any zone in system has a demand greater than or equal
to 1.5°F, then Reference Zone will be selected by zone with
greatest demand. Once all zones have a demand less than 1.5oF,
Reference Zone selection will not change until demand in that
zone is below 0.5°F. At this point Comfort Zone will re-select
Reference Zone and position that particular zone damper fully
open.
The Maximum Temperature is only used for cooling. It is set by
selecting Rotary Switch Position S-2. The Maximum Temperature
setting is used when a temperature above the 14° span is selected.
If Cooling Base Temperature is set to 68°F and cooling setpoint is
82°F, any attempt to raise cooling setpoint will select Maximum
Temperature.
The objective of Reference Zone is to ensure that zone with
greatest demand is receiving as much conditioned air as system
will allow. It also gives Comfort Zone system a point of reference
in observing response of zones to equipment operation.
The Minimum Temperature is only used for heating. It is set by
selecting Rotary Switch Position S-3. The Minimum Temperature
setting is used when a temperature below the 14 ° span is selected.
If Heating Base Temperature is set to 54°F, any attempt to lower
heating setpoint below 54°F will select Minimum Temperature.
PRE-POSITIONING DAMPERS AND STARTING
THE SYSTEM FAN
Both Maximum and Minimum Temperatures are intended for use
with schedules or setpoints which are extreme compared to normal
building temperatures.
In order to minimize noise and enhance system operation, Comfort
Zone maintains all zone dampers full open prior to starting system
fan or heating or cooling equipment. The intent is to provide
HVAC equipment with unrestricted duct work and reduce pressure
surges. Comfort Zone also fully opens dampers whenever a
heating or cooling cycle is completed and system fan is shutting
down. If Fan Switch on 4 zone controller is set to Auto, then all
zone dampers will remain fully open until next heating or cooling
cycle.
Comfort Zone also has one additional set of temperature settings.
These are Vacation Setpoints. The Vacation Setpoints are heating
and cooling setpoints to be used in all 4 zones whenever 4 zone
controller rotary switch is turned to "Vacation." The Vacation
option is used to place entire building in setback during long
unoccupied periods without danger of freezing or extreme
heat/humidity.
The other reason for opening dampers is to provide unrestricted
duct work to other equipment which is not directly controlled by
Comfort Zone. One example may be Heat Recovery Ventilator. If
Comfort Zone is not actively controlling HVAC system, then it
must not impose any control influences (i.e., closed zone dampers)
on system and prevent proper operation of other devices.
SEQUENCE OF EVENTS FOR A NORMAL HEATING OR
COOLING CYCLE
Given Comfort Setpoints and space temperature for zones within
system, Comfort Zone will determine if active heating or cooling
is required. If so, Comfort Zone will perform the following:
For Fan operation, switch settings on 4 zone controller and system
configuration can change actual operation.
1. Select a reference zone.
2. Make sure all zone dampers are fully open.
If Auto Fan Off For Heating option (Rotary switch position
number T-9) is ON, then Comfort Zone will only energize fan for
cooling cycles. This option is intended for furnaces which will
control their own fan internally.
3. Energize HVAC equipment fan.
4. Energize heating or cooling equipment. The equipment may
be a compressor, furnace, strip heater, etc.
8
The damper positions in table are also used during a Float Mode.
A zone with a demand of 0.5°F will be set to position number 5.
If Fan Switch on 4 zone controller is set to ON instead of Auto,
then system fan will run continuously. Any time Comfort Zone is
operating fan, it will be in active control of system.
The actual control of zone dampers by Comfort Zone system can
be modified using 3 configurable options. These are Maximum
Damper Position, Minimum Damper Position, and Ventilation
Mode.
NOTE: If Auto Fan Off For Heating option (rotary switch
position T-9) is ON, and Fan Switch on the 4 zone controller is
ON, Comfort Zone will operate fan full time.
Operating fan continuously will place Comfort Zone in a Float
Mode any time no active heating or cooling is taking place. During
Float Mode, Comfort Zone will position zone dampers based upon
demand in each zone. Comfort Zone will check air temperature in
duct work and allow air into zones if it will help zones reduce their
individual demands. For example, if temperature of air in duct
work is 65°F, cooling comfort setpoint for a zone is 72°F, and
space temperature is 73°F, then Comfort Zone will open damper
servicing that zone and allow cooler air into space.
These options apply to all zone dampers simultaneously. Any
dampers servicing Zone 1 cannot be configured differently than
those servicing Zone 2. The options are as follows:
Ventilation Mode is only in effect when temperature of supply air
is between 65°F and 80°F. Ventilation Mode establishes minimum
position of zone dampers and is intended to help air movement
throughout zones and reduce chance of having areas which are
stagnant or have high humidities with respect to rest of system.
The changes to dampers are detailed in the next section "Controlling the Zone Dampers."
2. The Minimum Damper Position (rotary position number
S-5) sets minimum open damper position for all 4 zones. The
allowable range for this option is damper positions number 0
through number 7. The factory default is number 0 (fully
closed). If Ventilation Mode (rotary position T-25) is turned
OFF, then minimum damper position will be an absolute
minimum regardless of operating mode. If Ventilation Mode
is turned ON, then minimum damper position will be minimum position during a Ventilation Mode only and dampers
will be allowed to fully close at any other time.
1. The Maximum Damper Position (rotary position number
S-4) sets maximum open damper position for all 4 zones. The
allowable range for this option is damper positions number 8
through number 15 (fully open). The factory default is 15. The
only time zone dampers will exceed this position is if system
fan is off or zone dampers are being calibrated.
CONTROLLING THE ZONE DAMPERS
The zone dampers have a total of 16 possible positions or
increments which are numbered 0 (zero) through 15. Position
number 0 is fully closed and position number 15 is fully open.
While damper servicing reference zone remains fully open, all
other zone dampers are positioned by selecting a position equal to
demand of space in tenths of a degree. (See Table 2.)
3. Ventilation Mode (rotary position T-25). If Ventilation Mode
is turned ON, then any time air inside supply air duct work is
between 65°F and 80°F, system will be in a "Ventilation
Mode". During a Ventilation Mode all zone dampers will have
a minimum position which is set by Minimum Damper
Position (rotary position S-5). The zone dampers are not
allowed to fully close as long as supply air temperature
remains within the 65°F-80°F range. If supply air temperature
falls outside the 65°F-80°F range, then zone dampers may
fully close.

NOTE: If Ventilation Mode option (rotary position T-25) is
turned ON, and Minimum Damper Position (rotary position S-5) is
set to position 0, there is no difference between Float Mode and
Ventilation Mode. In other words, Ventilation Mode option has
no effect on system.
OPERATING THE HEATING AND COOLING EQUIPMENT
Before any heating or cooling equipment is started, Comfort Zone
must first choose between heating or cooling. For most of the year
there is little question as to the need for heat or cooling. But for
portions of the year, particularly during mid-season, a building
may have simultaneous needs for both heating and cooling.
The first step in selecting heating or cooling is the determination of
a Reference Zone. If there is a single zone which has greatest
demand, then it will become the Reference Zone and Comfort
Zone will start equipment based upon needs of that zone. If 2 zones
have same "greatest demand" but in different modes (1 needs
heating and the other needs cooling), then Comfort Zone will
select mode which has greatest number of zones which require
same mode.
For example, a zone which has a 1.0°F demand will have damper
set to position number 10 while a zone which has a demand of
0.5°F will have damper set to position number 5. A demand of 0
(zero) will fully close zone damper. Any zone which has a demand
greater than 1.5°F will remain fully open.
CONTROL STRATEGY FOR HEATING / COOLING STAGES
The Comfort Zone system will attempt to minimize use of
additional stages of heating or cooling equipment. In an ideal case,
building conditioning needs can be supplied by first stage cooling
or first stage heating alone.
Notice that positions are based upon tenths of a degree Fahrenheit.
If Comfort Zone has Celsius Temperature Display option (rotary
position T-2) turned on, the damper control is still based upon
Fahrenheit scale.
For most heat pump applications, there may be only 2 or 3 stages
of heat depending upon type of emergency heater present. For a
heat pump, secondary heat source will generally be an electric strip

For cooling applications, the second stage of an air conditioner is not necessarily more expensive to operate than first stage. But additional cooling can drive down the
efficiency of a 2-speed air conditioner and longer use of first stage alone tends to deliver better humidity control in moist climates. Again, because of these advantages,
Comfort Zone will attempt to minimize use of second stage cooling. This is not as great of a concern for a heating application, because the majority of small air
conditioning systems sold today (5 tons and below) are single-stage cooling only.
For cooling only applications with any type of heater, Comfort
Zone will only control 2 stages of heat. If system uses a heat pump,
then Comfort Zone will control 3 stages of heat. The additional
stage is heat pump compressor contact. The auxiliary heat is still
2 stages. If system uses a 2 stage heat pump, then Comfort Zone
will control 4 stages of heat, 2 stages for heat pump and 2 stages
for auxiliary heat.
heater. The electric strip heat is much more expensive to operate
when comparing cost per unit of heat. Because auxiliary stages of
heating tend to be more expensive to operate, Comfort Zone
attempts to keep number of stages at a minimum.
CONFIGURATION OPTIONS FOR EQUIPMENT
OPERATION
Comfort Zone has several configurable options which allow it to
control different types of HVAC equipment and change the
manner in which the equipment is controlled. This first group must
be set given the type of HVAC equipment installed. These include:
The Comfort Zone Relay Pack outputs are shown in Table 4. The
Y1 and Y2 contacts are used for compressor contacts only.
Comfort Zone operates heat pumps by energizing compressor
contacts and controlling reversing valve through Reversing Valve
(RV) relay output. The W1 and W2 contacts are always used for
heat sources. These are heating only units such as furnaces, strip
heaters, etc. The relay outputs for Comfort Zone 1.4 are shown in
Table 4.
1. Heat Pump Operation (Rotary Position T-6).
2. Two-Stage Heat Pump (Rotary Position T-26).
3. Dual Fuel trip temperature (Rotary Position S-7).
4. Auto Fan Off For Heat (Rotary Position T-9).
The second group modifies the way the HVAC equipment is
controlled. These include:
Under no circumstances may the W1 and Y1 contacts on the
relay pack be jumpered together. This is a common practice
for many heat pump installations but will cause improper
operation of the Comfort Zone (1.4 or greater) system.
1. Comfort Trend Staging (Rotary Position T-8).
2. System Mode Reselect (Rotary Position T-22).
3. High/Low Temperature Limits Enabled (Rotary Position
T-10).
4. High Temperature Trip Limit (Rotary Position S-6).
STARTING THE HVAC EQUIPMENT
5. Dx Sensor (Rotary Position T-27).
Once Comfort Zone selects a mode, controller will use configuration options to modify control of HVAC equipment. The
controller first selects number of stages of heating and cooling that
may be applied to building load. The "available" stages are
determined by Reference Zone temperature demand and are shown
in Table 5.
6. Smart Start (Heat Pump Strip Heat Economy Feature)
The first options which must be set are based upon the type heater
or heaters used. These are shown in Table 3. The only option
which appears to impact cooling operation is Two-Stage Heat
Pump which implies the availability of 2 stages of cooling. In
reality there are no changes to cooling control scheme.
Using Table 5, if Reference Zone has a 2.3°F demand, then
Comfort Zone may use 2 stages of cooling or 2 stages of heating.
The HVAC equipment may not have 3 stages of heat or even 2
stages of cooling. The table is only used to determine what
equipment Comfort Zone is allowed to turn on at any given time
during a heating or cooling cycle. Actual operation of stages
depends on other variables as well.
Comfort Zone assumes that there are always 2 stages of cooling
present. These are connected to the Comfort Zone Relay Pack on
the Y1 and Y2 contacts.
RELAY PACK TO HVAC EQUIPMENT CONNECTIONS
Given system configuration, Comfort Zone can determine number
of heating stages that it will actually control and which relay
outputs will be used to control each stage of heat. Comfort Zone
can control up to 4 stages of heat depending upon system
configuration.
10
Normally Comfort Zone will start equipment operation when it has
a demand of 1.5°F or greater. In some cases, Comfort Zone will be
facing a demand greater than 1.5°F when a mode is starting. This
can occur when user changes setpoints in a zone or if a schedule
change has reset the Comfort Setpoints.

heat and switch into a cooling mode. Once cooling demand is
satisfied (or System Mode Reselect dictates a switch), Comfort
Zone will revert to a heating mode in order to try and satisfy that
demand.
The need for System Mode Reselect usually indicates some type of
system problem. Common use of System Mode Reselect may be
caused by poor or improper duct work, open windows or doors,
HVAC equipment failure, improper equipment sizing, etc. The
need for System Mode Reselect usually occurs in larger installations where zone use or occupancy may vary widely. For residential application, the need for System Mode Reselect is normally not
frequent unless the building has unusual architectural features or
problems with HVAC system.
NOTE: Comfort Zone uses a 3-minute timer to delay start of
second-stage (heating or cooling). This timer is started whenever
first-stage heating or cooling is energized. This delay cannot be
overridden or disabled.
High/Low Temperature Limits is an option that allows Comfort
Zone to control equipment stages and position dampers based upon
temperature of supply air leaving HVAC equipment. As the
Comfort Zone system operates through a heating or cooling cycle,
zone demands and damper positions will change. This changes
actual tonnage or BTUH that is applied to HVAC equipment. The
tonnage generated by HVAC equipment must equal tonnage
placed into zones. If zone’s airflow decreases, cooling equipment
will tend to drive down supply air temperatures. Conversely,
heating equipment will tend to drive up supply air temperatures.
STAGE CONTROL DURING EQUIPMENT OPERATION
As shown earlier, Comfort Zone has 6 configurable options which
help govern equipment operation. They are:
1. Comfort Trend Staging (Rotary Position T-8).
2. System Mode Reselect (Rotary Position T-22).
With High/Low Temperature Limits turned ON, Comfort Zone
will detect this condition and take corrective action. The first step
taken by Comfort Zone will be to start turning off extra stages of
equipment. this will continue until either the Leaving Air Temperature problem is corrected or system is operating on first-stage
heating or cooling only.
3. High/Low Temperature Limits Enabled (Rotary Position
T-10).
4. High Temperature Trip Limit (Rotary Position S-6).
5. Dx Sensor (Rotary Position T-27).
6. Smart Start (Heat Pump Strip Heat Economy Feature)
If system is operating on first-stage heating or cooling, Comfort
Zone will begin to gradually open zone dampers. This can continue
until system has become a fully-open constant-volume system if
needed. The objective is to provide required heating or cooling as
best as possible prior to shutting off equipment. In practice the
control tends to match equipment capacity to zone demands and
will seldom revert back to a fully-open system.
Comfort Trend Staging and High/Low Temperature Limits
control the use of extra stages of heating and cooling. Both can be
turned off by the installer but the use of these options is highly
recommended.
Comfort Trend Staging is used by Comfort Zone as an aid to
decide if second-stage (heating or cooling) is needed. The system
must have at least 1 zone with a demand equal to or greater than
2.0oF to allow use of second stage. Comfort Trend looks at
temperature inside zone and watches trend over time. If zone
demand is being lowered by first-stage operation, second stage is
not energized. Stage 1 would remain ON and Stage 2 would
remain OFF as long as temperature and trend continued to
improve.
The Leaving Air Temperature control can also indicate problem
zones within a system which are not receiving sufficient airflow. If
1 area (or zone) within a building has difficulty becoming satisfied
then there may be a sizing problem or an obstruction in duct work
supplying that zone.
To use the Leaving Air Temperature Control, 3 options must be
setup properly. They are:
Comfort Trend Staging uses a 6-minute timer and a record of the
Reference Zone demand to control second stage. When Comfort
Trend Staging starts, demand in Reference Zone is recorded and
temperature in zone is continuously monitored. If demand in
Reference Zone is reduced (temperature is approaching comfort
setpoints), then 6-minute timer is restarted and new demand is
recorded. If 6-minute timer expires and demand is the same or has
grown greater, Comfort Zone will start second stage.
1. High/Low Temperature Limits Enabled (Rotary Position
T-10).
2. High Temperature Trip Limit (Rotary Position S-6).
3. Dx Coil Sensor For Leaving Air Temperature Checking
(Rotary Position T-27).
First, High/Low Temperature Limits Enabled must be turned
ON. This is the ON-OFF switch for the control option. The
temperature used for this control is measured by Remote Duct
Sensor and (optionally) the Dx Coil Sensor.
Comfort Trend works for all stages of heating and cooling
operation.
Comfort Trend staging will be used if rotary Position T-8 is turned
ON. If T-8 is turned OFF, then second stage will be energized
whenever Reference Zone demand meets or exceeds 2.0°F and
after 3-minute delay.
The High Temperature Trip Limit (Rotary Position S-6) is
supply air temperature for heating that the Leaving Air Temperature control uses to detect a problem during heating modes only.
The Comfort Zone thermostat will display a number between 05
and 55°F. The actual temperature is 100°F greater, such that the
actual range is 105°F to 155°F. Comfort Zone cannot display the
100’s digit.
System Mode Reselect allows Comfort Zone to switch between
heating and cooling even if current system demand has not been
satisfied. For example, if Comfort Zone is providing heat, System
Mode Reselect allows Comfort Zone to look at any cooling needs
which may also exist in the building. If cooling demand exceeds
heating demand for 20 minutes, Comfort Zone will stop providing
Selecting the Offset Temperature picks the temperature when
Comfort Zone will start taking action to correct the Leaving Air
Temperature. If limit temperature is between 105°F and 109°F,
11
Table 6—Programmable Options-Settings
then temperature at which first stage will be shut down will be
offset 5°F above limit value (110°F to 114°F). If limit temperature
is between 110°F and 155°F, then temperature at which first stage
will shut down will be offset 20°F above limit value (130°F to
175°F). For Cooling modes the temperature is fixed at 50°F (10°C)
for starting the control and 45°F (7.2°C) for turning off first-stage
cooling.
The heating value must be set given the type of heater used in the
system. This is for the final heat source. So a heat pump with
strip heat would use a temperature appropriate for strip heaters. A
furnace application may have a setting in the 130°F to 155°F
range. Strip heaters may fall into a 115°F to 130°F range. Heat
pump only systems may use 105°F to 115°F. Check equipment
manufacturer recommendations and verify setting is in accordance
with UL, NFPA, or any applicable Local or State Building Codes.
If there is any question about what may be an appropriate
temperature setting, use conservative (low) temperatures.

To set address of a Smart Sensor, rotary switch position 1 on
Smart Sensor must be selected first.
Dx Coil Sensor For Leaving Air Temperature (Rotary Position
T-27) allows Comfort Zone to use a Dx Coil Sensor in addition to
Remote Duct Sensor for Leaving Air Temperature Checking. The
Dx Coil Sensor is used in heat pumps with fan coil applications
and will be located after the Dx coil and before any strip heaters.
This sensor is only active during heat pump operation. The
temperature setting for this sensor is fixed at 105°F for initiating
the control option and 110°F for shutting down first stage.
2. Maximum Cooling Setpoint (S-2)
This is the highest temperature value to which cooling setpoint
can be adjusted. All zones will use same value. The maximum
cooling setpoint can be programmed from 80°F to 95°F. This
allows cooling setpoints to be programmed above normal
range.
Example: Maximum cooling setpoint is programmed at 92°
F. The temperature range for cooling setpoint is 70° F to 84°F.
When the COOL setpoint up button is pressed to adjust
cooling setpoint above 84°F, setpoint will jump to 92°F.
Heat Pump-Strip Heat Economy Feature (Smart Start). This is
an automatic control within Comfort Zone and not a selectable
option. The Smart Start feature is used whenever primary source of
heat is a heat pump. As such, the Heat Pump toggle (Rotary
Position T-6) must be turned ON. Smart Start is designed to help
minimize use of strip heat or emergency heat whenever a large
heating demand occurs due to a scheduled setpoint change. Smart
Start looks at scheduled comfort setpoints for the next hour. If
scheduled setpoints will make system provide heat, Smart Start
will start heat pump an hour early. Smart Start will operate until
zone demand is brought within 0.5°F (0.28°C) of the next hour’s
heat setpoint or setpoints change due to the schedule (the hour
expires).
3. Minimum Heating Setpoint (S-3)
This is the lowest temperature value to which heating setpoint
can be adjusted. All zones will use same value. The minimum
heating setpoint can be programmed from 34°F to 64°F. This
allows heating setpoints to be programmed below normal
range.
Example: Minimum heating setpoint is programmed at 56°
F. The temperature range for heating setpoint is 66° F to 80°F.
When the HEAT setpoint down button is pressed to adjust
heating setpoint below 66°F, setpoint will jump to 56°F.
Smart Start assumes auxiliary heat is more expensive to operate
when compared to heat pump and it assumes that heat pump is a
relatively "slow" source of heat. Smart Start allows a zone to
recover from a setback or unoccupied period and use the most
economic source of heat in doing so. The idea of using a setback
or unoccupied schedule is to save money in operating costs. There
is little incentive to use schedules if zone is heated with most
expensive source of heat available.
4. Maximum Damper Position (S-4)
This is the highest open position to which a damper will
change. Full open is designated as position 15. Maximum
open damper position can be programmed between 8 (half
open) and 15, in increments of 1. All zone dampers will use
the same programmed maximum value.
5. Ventilation/Minimum Damper Position (S-5)
When there is no demand for cooling or heating, this is the
minimum position that every zone damper will maintain as
long as air temperature in duct work is between 65°F and
80°F. Full closed is designated as position 00. Minimum open
damper position can be programmed between 7 (half-open)
and 00, in increments of 1. All zone dampers will use the same
programmed ventilation value.
Step 11—Configuring Four Zone Controller
PROGRAMMABLE OPTIONS-SETTINGS
Turn zone selector dial to position S. (See Fig. 18.) The controller
display shows setting number and its value.
The upper 2 digits show the setting’s number and the lower 2 digits
show the value of setting.
6. High Temperature Trip Limit (S-6)
Press the COOL up or down setpoint buttons to change setting
number and the HEAT up or down setpoint buttons to change
value. Refer to Table 6 for settings and their definitions.
The trip temperatures limits are duct temperatures used to turn
HVAC equipment off to prevent damage to equipment.
Temperature values are measured by duct temperature sensors.
1. Zone Controller Bus Address (S-1)
This setting establishes the identity of the 4 zone controller on
the Carrier communication bus.
The low temperature trip limits are 50°F (turn off second-stage
cooling) and 45°F (turn off first-stage cooling) and cannot be
changed.
NOTE: Remote room sensors do not require addressing.
The second-stage high temperature trip limit can be programmed from 105°F to 155°F.
If using optional Smart Sensors, they must be addressed as
follows:
12
Table 7—Wiring Diagram Reference
For Fig. 19 and 20
If a value of 105 to 110 is selected (second-stage heating is
turned off at this value) then the first-stage high temperature
trip limit is the programmed value plus 5°F (first-stage is
turned off).
If a value of 111 to 155 is selected (second-stage heating is
turned off) then the first-stage high temperature trip limit is the
programmed value plus 20°F (first stage is turned off).
Example 1:
High temperature trip limit selected is 105°F. (Shown as 05 in
controller display.)
Second-stage heat will turn off when duct temperature sensor
measures a temperature greater than 105°F.
First-stage heat will turn off when duct temperature sensor
measures a temperature greater than 110°F.
Example 2: High temperature trip limit selected is 140°F.
(Shown as 40 in controller display.)
Second-stage heat will turn off when duct temperature sensor
measures a temperature greater than 140°F.
First-stage heat will turn off when duct temperature sensor
measures a temperature greater than 160°F.

This option is used with a system that has a heat pump and
another heat source (possibly gas) that should not run at the
same time as heat pump. When any heat pump is on, all
auxiliary heat will be off, and vice versa.
NOTE: The auxiliary heat must always have greater heating
ability than the heat pump at low outdoor temperatures for this
option to have any value.
NOTE: If Dual Fuel setpoint is set to 0, then this option is
disabled. If Dual Fuel option is used, an outside air temperature
sensor or refrigerated air sensor must be used.

When dual fuel setpoint variable is set to outdoor temperature
(10°F to 60°F) that is the crossover point between running
heat pump or using auxiliary heat as the preferred method of
heating.
The setpoint is used only when the first stage of heating is
brought on. If outdoor temperature is above setpoint, heat
pump (Y1) is energized. If outdoor temperature is below
setpoint, auxiliary heat (W1) is used. If heat pump is started
and outdoor temperature goes below setpoint, dual fuel option
is not used for that heating cycle.

Exit program mode by pressing SET TIME/TEMP SCHEDULES button.
Overriding Programming
The display shows zone number in the upper left digits, and the
lower right digits show damper position. The left hand setpoint
buttons will toggle the zone number (1-4) and also to 5 where
collective damper position is programmed in for bypass. When it
is toggled to position 5 and annunciator is toggled from OFF to ON
with right hand buttons, controller totals all damper positions and
stores them. While displaying 1-4, the damper for that zone can be
directed to any position with right hand buttons. The collective
damper position that is programmed at position 5 is the minimum
total damper open position. The largest minimum open position is
60 (4 zones with 15 positions each). The number that is programmed in will be the minimum total damper open positions that
bypass will try to maintain. The bypass damper positions are 1 for
every 3 that the total needs. (Example: The maximum total is 60,
but only 3 dampers are open. This is only 45, so bypass takes 60,
subtracts 45, comes up with 15, and divides this number by 3. The
result is 5, so bypass goes to position 5.)
To override time programming, press any setpoint button. This
will also adjust setpoints for override period. Once setpoints are
adjusted, they will not change until the next programmed time
period for that zone.
If HOLD TEMPERATURES button is pressed, then current
setpoints will not change with time, but remain at last values
entered for as long as hold mode is active.
To release hold mode, press HOLD TEMPERATURE button a
second time.
The controller display will show the word HOLD whenever hold
mode is active.
Temperature Sensor Calibration
NOTE: Temperature sensors are factory calibrated; however,
field calibration is recommended.
The setpoint display shows actual temperature (Fahrenheit or
Celsius).
Step 15—Accessories
The upper left-hand corner of display indicates the whole number
value. The lower right-hand corner indicated the tenths.
Refer to individual Installation Instructions packaged with kits or
accessories when installing.
Pressing either HEAT or COOL button raises or lowers displayed
temperature by 1/10 of a degree.
HOME ACCESS MODULE
The Home Access Module (HAM) is designed to detect Comfort
Zone System errors. The HAM can report when system is
operating correctly, or when an error is detected. The HAM can
automatically call an ACS dealer or the ACS National Response
Center.
If temperature readings are not stable within 0.5°F, refer to
troubleshooting section for details.
Damper Service Mode
The Damper Service Mode can be selected to check full operation
of each zone damper independently. The controller display shows
zone number in the upper left digits, and damper position in the
lower right digits. The left hand setpoint buttons will toggle the
zone number (1-4) and 5.
NOTE: No. 5 not used for damper service mode, see below for
details when setting motorized bypass damper pressure relief limit.
NOTE: The HAM must be programmed via Report Logger or PC
Command Center Software prior to installation.
SMART SENSOR AND SMART SENSOR POWER PACK
NOTE: These 2 accessories must be used together.
The Smart Sensor provides the ability to view and adjust setpoints
in zone where sensor is located.
When this mode is selected, all 4 zone dampers are activated and
opened to position 15. (See Table 2.) Fan will energize. Use right
hand setpoint buttons to toggle down from position 15 to position
0. This feature can verify that each zone damper is operating
properly by manually opening and closing each zone. When rotary
switch dial is moved onto another position, Damper Service Mode
will be cleared and controller will resume normal operation.
The Smart Sensor replaces a Remote Room Sensor and requires a
single 5-wire conductor instead of a 2-wire conductor.
OUTSIDE AIR DAMPER
The outside air damper allows fresh outside air into building.
16
When any zone cannot maintain room temperature within 5°F of
desired setpoint for a period of 20 minutes, a comfort trend error
is declared. This error is transparent and will not be shown on
controller display. If a Home Access Module (HAM) is on the
system, the ACS dealer or national ACS response center will
receive a call identifying this error.
OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR
The Outside Air Temperature Sensor must be used whenever an
Outside Air Damper is installed. An Outside Air Temperature
Sensor must also be used for dual fuel applications.
Step 16—Troubleshooting
This section contains information to assist you in troubleshooting
problems and errors associated with the Comfort Zone System.
The most common operating problems and different types of errors
associated with the Comfort Zone System are:
Operating Problems—No display, flashing display, and flashing
HEAT or COOL annunciators. Comfort Zone controller selects a
system mode but does not energize heating/cooling unit.
Hardware Failure (HF) Errors—Occur when Comfort Zone
controller detects a problem with 1 of its own components or an
associated device.
Storage Failure (SF) Errors—Occur when Comfort Zone controller detects and replaces faulty data contained within its memory
with factory selected default values.
Transparent Errors—Occur when Comfort Zone controller detects a system or zone operating problem.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
For continuing optimum performance and to minimize possible
equipment failure, it is essential that periodic maintenance be
performed on this equipment. Consult your servicing contractor or
User’s Manual for the proper frequency of maintenance. Frequency of maintenance may vary depending upon geographic area.
Leave system manual with homeowner.
Explain system operation and maintenance procedures outlined in
User’s Manual.

NOTE: 38YD – with dual fuel, use the 38YD “Furnace Interface” and
“Balance Point” feature on the heat pump control to operate
dual fuel option. Configure the 4-Zone controller to act as
if it were controlling a single speed heat pump. Turn (T-6) ON.
Turn (T-9 & T-26) OFF. Set (S-7) to 0. (Let the 38YD perform
the dual fuel optimization).

In addition, lock furnace into “low fire”. This may help prevent over
conditioning during the back-up heat (furnace) mode. This will also
allow the furnace to stage between low and high fire. Before using
this feature read furnace Installation Instructions for two-stage
operation. Connect “W2” from the Comfort Zone Center to “W2” on
the furnace control board.

38YDA – with dual fuel, same as above, however in addition if
(T-26) is turned “ON”, and stage 2 latch pot is set to zone position,
4 stages of heat are possible.
