Extra valves to avoid overheating? What do you think?
Good day all, I hope that you are well.
I just started with Tado. I have the smart thermostat as well as 2 smart radiator valves. My heating system is water based heated by gas (if that makes sense?)
At the moment, I installed the wired Tado thermostat in my living room . I installed one of the radiator valve in the bathroom and one in the office (see below).
I set my living room/kitchen (which is one big room basically) to 20°, bathroom to 19° and office to 21°.
After two days of use, I realise that my home is currently overheating. Indeed, the temp is gradually rising to 22°, 22.5°, …
What I believe is happening is that, to keep the desired temp in bathroom and office (which are not well insulated), the heating system needs to go on regularly. However, given that all the radiators are linked together, when it goes on in one room, it goes on everywhere, resulting in the overheating. At the moment, what I have to do is manually close the radiators in all other rooms but office and bathroom.
I'm thinking of buying an extra two valves. One for the hallway, and one for the kitchen. (bedroom and living room radiators are permanently closed).
Do you believe that this will help with my problem? Can you think of another solution?
Thanks very much for the help!
