New installation in a new(ish) house and a few questions.
Hi all first time here, also first time home owner.
Last year i've bought an old house that i am currently finishing renovating. The isolation was horrendous and no heating system you could call one, the previous owner had gas heaters in every other room, yikes.
So after we redid everything properly i decided that i wanted a smart thermostat, amazon not helping. I've got myself a wireless kit and a pack of 4 trvs (for starters, those things are expensive and i have to move in soon, it costs me an insane amount of money already) for 13 radiators in total.
The boiler is a vaillant ecotec pro from 2022, it does both heating and hot water and was connected to a digital thermostat working in off/on mode. I wired the wireless kit to the vaillant's ebus, put the shunt back in as per instructions, set tado to D07 and it seems to be working. The boiler fires up when i set heat to the max and stops when i set it to zero, it also looks like it's modulating properly as i am not observing the water going higher than 39°C once the house heated up.
Now for the questions. The radiator setup is as follows: 4 Radiators downstairs, 5 on second floor and 4 on the third.
I've put one trv in the living room downstairs, it's the most stable room it has only one wall that's directly exposed to the outside and also the one with the biggest radiator.
One in the office on the second story, one in the bedroom (it has a small room adjacent to it with no door with a small radiator in it) and the last one in the extra room. All on the same floor.
The rest of the radiators are equipped with the usual thermostatic valves and all are set to 2 out of 5 (i have to check the actual temp this gives me and adapt) safe the one in the hallway downstairs which is opened full blast (cuz you need at least one open radiator to not overheat the boiler i've heard). The wireless temp sensor/thermostat is in the living room.
The idea is when the living room hits the desired temp (with the sensor in the middle of it) the TRV closes the biga$$ radiator and the room will remain at the desired temp by opening and closing it rather than calling directly for heat. The rooms on the second floor will regulate their temp individually and call for heat as needed and they do it more often than the living room, they are also set slightly colder (like the bedroom). The rest of the system will get heat when the trv equipped rooms fire up the boiler.
Is it dumb? Are there ways to improve the whole shebang? So far (in the two last days since i've put tado in) the "dumb" radiators are nice and warm, do not seem to be overly heated, their respective rooms do feel properly heated too.
The boiler seems to be on 24/7 also according to the tado app, i suppose because it modulates instead of goint into on/off cycles, or is it supposed to shut down at some point?
