Thermostat only - when does it call for heat?
First time poster - I am considering getting the Thermostat but have a crucial question. Apologies if the answer is documented elsewhere. I have searched before posting and downloaded the app,
Until recently we had an aging dial thermostat which started and stopped the the boiler solely based on temperature. If it seemed slow to react we would turn the dial until it clicked. I hope this sounds familiar to you.
We recently replaced this thermostat with a Honeywell DT90E digital thermostat. Great, we thought, we can see we the temperature is and what it should be accurately. And it does. However the thermostat has a feature we have come to loathe, called TPI https://heatingcontrols.honeywellhome.com/products/temperature-controls/temperature-tpi-control/
This feature maintains the temperature by 'topping up' on a cycle set on the thermostat. Default is every 6 times per hour, but can be 3, 6 or 12. In terms of maintaining temperature it is great.
So the DT90E thermostat now clicks 6, 12 or 24 times an hour as it goes on and off.
So, my question is how does the Tado thermostat work in this regard? Does it click ? Does it cycle on a timed basis? or react based on temperature changes? and can this be configured ?
The thermostat is outside our bedroom door and the clicking is so loud and frequent it wakes us up. We turn it off every night to shut it up...
The question probably applies for the TRVs too but that would be irrelevant if the thermostat is a non-starter for us.
