Question about Heating & Cooling
Maximum Heat Setting Too Low... The developer who I bought my place from set it up to be rented, not owner-occupied, so that the previous owner could keep some control over the maximum heat. (No AC in unit). The heat cannot be set above 70F. My other heating zones will often be set at 60F (this works OK) by my choice, so that I would like the heat setting for this zone sometimes to be 73F or above. Added and Summary of Details - SimpleComfort 2010; Heat and no AC in unit; I have already replaced the batteries, so that there are now good quality fresh new ones in stat of course. I have looked for manual or for other posts asking same question online; I will appreciate any ideas.
Make sure stat is in heat mode if it only heats in cool mode then wrong wires were hooked up to furnace also try pressing the hold button and see if that gets you anywhere

Testimonial: "Thanks for the idea about the 'Hold Button' There is not a manual anywhere for the thermostat that I have been able to find. Does anyone have an idea where that button is on the SC2010? The system does work fine up to 70F, the problem is that the highest setting available is 70 and nothing happens when the upArrow to increase above 70F is pushed. Thanks very much for the response, Jesse!"

on an inside wall - large(est) room - near center of house - out of direct sunlight - not in or near kitchen, bath, appliance, light, or anything else that makes heat - approx 60" from floor - not close to a supply air (above a return air is GOOD)

Hello. Each zone in you home has one thermostat controlling one zone valve. Generally, when a thermostat is calling for heat the zone valve opens and the circulating pump comes on to move the water around that loop. If your other two zones are both working as they should and you now have a new zone valve on the third loop I would suspect that the thermostat is faulty. Regards, Joe

Two problems, one is a bad thermostat on zone 2. The second is the boiler. The inducer fan energizes causing a pressure switch to engage. This pressure switch energizes the ignitor. If the ignitor does not get hot enough, it will cycle again all over. The cheapest route to take is to check all hoses going from fan housing to pressure switch looking for bad connections or leaks, the second thing to do is to replace your ignitor (time for it anyway).

The zone valve when there is a call for heat opens and the lever should give you no resistance. I am curious to know if other zones are heating ok. You could have a bad circulator or a frozen zone.

Setting a thermostat has nothing to do with outdoor temperature, but more to do with what is a comfortable setting for you and your utility bill.
A common misconception associated with thermostats is that a furnace works harder than normal to warm the space back to a comfortable temperature after the thermostat has been set back, resulting in little or no savings. This misconception has been dispelled by years of research and numerous studies. The fuel required to reheat a building to a comfortable temperature is roughly equal to the fuel saved as the building drops to the lower temperature. You save fuel between the time that the temperature stabilizes at the lower level and the next time heat is needed. So, the longer your house remains at the lower temperature, the more energy you save.
Another misconception is that the higher you raise a thermostat, the more heat the furnace will put out, or that the house will warm up faster if the thermostat is raised higher. Furnaces put out the same amount of heat no matter how high the thermostat is set; the variable is how long it must stay on to reach the set temperature.
In the winter, significant savings can be obtained by manually or automatically reducing your thermostat's temperature setting for as little as four hours per day. These savings can be attributed to a building's heat loss in the winter, which depends greatly on the difference between the inside and outside temperatures. For example, if you set the temperature back on your thermostat for an entire night, your energy savings will be substantial. By turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for 8 hours, you can save about 5 to 15 percent a year on your heating bill -- a savings of as much as 1 percent for each degree if the setback period is eight hours long.
Hope this helps..........
