Please help me. I am a bloke who actually has to live with his mother in
I've recently fitted a woodburner in my lounge. It is proving to be very
efficient heating for the room. I have gas central heating with rads
throughout the house including the Mother in Laws 'quarters' upstairs. I
have fitted Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) on all her rads. Most of
the downstairs rads have normal valves.
The problem is the central heating thermostat is in the hall downstairs and
appears to be influenced by hot air from woodburner and radiator in hall (
normal valves). This turns off the central heating leaving Mother in Law in
danger of chilblanes ! (and unable to ride her broomstick)
At present I'm turning up the thermostat to compensate for the extra heat to
maintain a comfy temep for M in Law. I'm concerned that this will waste my
hard earned cash.
I've considered installing TRVs on all rads but have heard this is dangerous
and some rads should be left with normal valves.
I've thought of relocating the CH thermostat to the 'witches lair' for her
convenience,or it possible to fit another thermostat in parallel thus
enabling M in law to override the system when her core temperature drops.??
Any central heating Gurus can offer me advice on how to keep everybody happy
please feel free.
