Our company owns an old, not well insulated huge cottage in the mountains which we rent out. It has 6 bedrooms divided between three floors. Some of the bedrooms get ice cold and others are saunas. There is only one zone on the hot water boiler. Ideally, we would like to get each bedroom to be able to control its own temperature via a thermostat so the occupants can adjust their own heat to their own comfort level. How would you go about this? Are there small remote circulators which could be installed in each bedroom controlled by a thermostat? Would you try to run the boiler circulator continuously and have thermostatically controlled valves on each radiator? Would you try to get a different zone for each bedroom with circulators in the boiler room? Would you try to keep the temperature down in the cottage and use some type of supplimental heat for the bedrooms?
We are stumped and are finding out that the cottage is quite uncomfortable with the wildly varying temperatures in different areas of the cottage. Any help figuring this problem out would be tremendously appreciated. Please email responses also. email@example.com Thanks!
