: Is there an advantage to using a mixing control like the Tekmar 360 when heating with slant fin baseboard heaters?
: Or is a control like the Tekmar only useful when using in only In-floor heating or combination In-floor and baseboard?
One advantage of baseboard is that it can surround the entire room's cold walls at the base with warmth if it is installed wall to wall. A mixing valve can reduce the temperature of that baseboard to approach the heating need according to the weather in the same fashion as infloor, while keeping the cast iron boiler temperature high enough to prevent condensation and/or provide tankless hot water.
