A thermostat is a switch that turns the heating on and off depending on the room temperature. Thermostats are often mistaken for a heat dial, that when turned up high, quickens the time it takes to heat a room. However, when used correctly, thermostats eliminate energy waste by overheating.
Balancing an underfloor heating system involves timing how long it takes for a room to heat up and cool down. You can then use this information to devise the optimal heating schedule for your home. Use the tips below to balance your heating system.
It is best to place your thermostat in a location where it can receive a free flow of air to establish an accurate reading for balancing your heating system. It is also crucial that household items do not obstruct the thermostat; therefore, it is best to fit it in a clear space away from wall decor and furniture. Lastly, ensure that your thermostat is not near any other heat sources like log burners or gas fires.
