Understanding Fan Coil Actuators in Condo HVAC Systems

In a condo fan coil system, the actuator is a motorized device responsible for controlling valve operations. Working harmoniously with the thermostat, it regulates the room temperature by managing the flow of hot or cold water through the coil. Actuator failures are one of the major reported reasons for service calls when it comes to condo fan coil repair no heat or no air conditioning situations.

How Do Actuators Work In Fan Coils?

When the thermostat calls for heating or cooling, the actuator receives the command to open or close the valve, allowing the hot or cold water to enter the coil. Actuator malfunction can result in no heat or no cool situation. In addition, faulty actuators can cause overheating or overcooling in the condo space.

Voltage Considerations: 24V versus Line Voltage 120V

Choosing between 24V and 120V actuators is pivotal. The rise of 24V actuators gives us more versatile solutions connecting different parts of the fan coil units with each other. Hence, allowing manufacturers to improve performance, safety, energy efficiency and adaptability in modern HVAC systems. They are more customizable, offering versatility. In contrast, 120V actuators are typically found in older fan coil units, representing a traditional approach to HVAC systems.

Please note that You can not install a 24V actuator in 120V configurations.
