100% valves, passive thermostat

Post by tomschwarz » 02 Dec 2018, 21:55

hello friends,

almost done with 100% valve coverage on 18 radiators. then i would like to put the house into "comfort priority" mode, and take boiler-control away from the thermostat: only a radiator can request that the boiler turn on and only a radiator can accept the resulting hot water/or not, based on that room/radiators' thermostat temperature measurement.

am i correct in understanding that the only way to do this is to set the thermostat itself on frost control (low temp)? or is there a setting that i missed so that only the valves/valve thermometer can turn on the boiler?

thanks,
tom

Hi Tom,

Yes what you wrote makes sense. Under "Comfort Priority" mode if you set the thermostat at a low temperature you will be able to control the boiler only via the valves.

Best,

In your scenario is better solution to assign thermostat to one of the rooms with valve. In this case will room with the thermostat consider always 2 temperatures and maintain room temperature more accurate.

I can propose you my solution. I installed thermostat to boiler room connected to boiler (thermostat switching boiler and relay is in better position for WIFI and also RC signal).
Now I get 2 important improvements:
1. I have one more room I am able to monitor (heating room)
2. If I open Heating room graph, I can see cumulativee time that my boiler was requested to heat.
