Use is normally predictable, because we use it as a dining room. Heating system is fairly standard, and conservatory rads are just extended off main house heating circuit,
Can I put a motorised valve at the flow into the conservatory, and attach it to a timer (plug-in or otherwise) to let the water through only when it's in use?
This is all new to me. I assume something like this would do it ("normally open" version)... http://www.honeywelluk.com/Products/Valves/Motorised-Valves/V4043-Motorised-Valves / ...but the reference guide says "Note: Continuous operation of the valve motor at the fully open position is not recommended." What do they mean by continuous - seconds, minutes, hours, days?
I was going to hide this in a box on the wall in the conservatory which can be easily opened when it breaks down. Otherwise it would be under the floorboards under laminate flooring which would be a real pain!
Would this work? Any model particularly suited to this (i.e. simply use with a simple timer)?
