You are correct. The piping to my living room with the present hermostat and the other comfortably heated rooms is shorter than the piping to the family room (room that does not heat up properly). Compounding this problem is that the piping to the family room is 1/2 inch. This room was an addition (approximately 1970) The piping to the other rooms is 3/4 inch. (original house built in 1952). I bought the house in 1996.
Two years ago my plumber put in a ball valve in order to restict flow to my living room (room with thermostat). This helped a little. But my family room is still very uncomfortable.
If there will be "one" zone valve directing water to the family room when it is needed, how will flow to the other rooms be stopped?
Wouldn't two zone valves work better than one? One valve would release water to the family room. The other zone valve would release water to the other three rooms. The piping could be "easily" adjusted for this soluton. Zone Valve 1 would work off the new thermostat in family room. Zone valve 2 would work off the present thermostat.
