Thanks Harold for the information. It is quite a bit to absorb so I will try to read through it and get back to you with any questions we have concerning it. Now for just a couple other questions.
In a heating system such as ours is it cost effective to turn down the heat at night (also for sleeping comfort) and turn it up during the day while we are at home? Before we lived in a much smaller homw with forced air and would turn the heat down to 60 at night and up to 68 for a short period while we got ready for work and then back down again. When we returned from work we turned the heat back up to 68 again. I can't see us turning the heat up and down as much here because of the longer time it takes to heat up the house with the hot water heat.
Can you use an automatic thermostat that you set to turn down the heat at night and up during the day with this type of system and if so by doing this does this end up costing more in the long run?Right now we just have one of those regular round Honeywell Thermostats.Thank you for your fast response to my earlier question. Any help or advice will be appreciated. Karen
