Central Heating System Change - - - - OpenTherm or Weather Compensation - - - - Advice please.
My current setup is a Viessmann 050-W Combi boiler with a tado° Extension Kit (+ Hot Water control) connected in OpenTherm and 10 SRT's plus 1 Wireless Thermostat and 1 Wireless Temperature Sensor. I have 5 of the SRT's without a Zone Controller (INDEPENDENT) I have lowered the Max Flow temperature to 65° C from the tado° default setting of 80°C
I have had my tado° for over 2 years now, and I am frankly getting annoyed with the number of times that I have had to "adjust" my setup to try to achieve a "happy medium" between comfort and efficiency of operation........not to mention the annoyance that I feel every time I discover that a tado° feature either doesn't work at all or simply doesn't work as indicated by tado° (sales gimmicks)
So I have decided that once this current Heating Season is over I need to make a decision regarding my CH system.
I have noted that my current Viessmann boiler can be set up with Weather Compensation. However I'm not sure if I could/should retain any of my current tado° devices. There have been a couple of comments in other threads regarding using Weather Compensation.........however I need to know more information before I decide on a course of action.
I have already "heavily invested" in my tado° system, and don't want to " throw good money after bad" as the saying goes......but I am willing to cut my losses and move on. I could just simply wait for the (supposedly expected) next generation of tado° devices and "hope" that tado° will address all the many well known issues that their current range of devices have.........but even if tado° does manage to produce a great new product range.......what about the customer support.......??🤔 That is a complete unknown !!!
So can anyone provide me with a little guidance on what you think I should take into consideration before I tear it all down and start again........ps......I'm a Viessmann fan.
