Is it possible to get HC3 to controll the temp proactive instead of reactive?


Kouzco

Question

Hi!

 

I have my house stuffed with electrical heated floors. They are all controlled by HeatIt Trm3 thermostats.

I use the floor sensor in all of them as I found that the room sensor was not good enough (the temperature varied too much with room sensor, even after calibration).

 

The trouble is now that the temp outside is getting colder, so is inside. The floor it self is always 22,5 degreees, but the room temp is 20.

Is there a way in HC3 to make a compensations for the temperature outside?

So the lower the temp gets outside, HC3 will compensate and add a little heat to counter it.

 

thanks!

as i can see you have HC3.

so simple create temp sensor QA

make calculation what you want for example calculate avg (mean) temp with room sensors + outdoors 

and use this value for this QA

than use this QA sensor as main sensor for your thermostat.

  • Not sure what a QA is, but..

     

    I've spoke  to Thermofloor which is the manufacturer of the Heatit Z-trm3 thermostats, and they say the thermostat can not use any other sensors other than the three built in ?
