Time Delay Switch Inquiry
I've seen some posts referring to this as a workaround to short cycling. That said, most replies refer to adding main vents and/or adjusting the Heat Cycle Rate of the thermostat (which i believe addresses a slightly different issue)
Right now, after the first cycle, subsequent cycles average about a 1 minute on / 1 minute off until the thermostat is met. Concern is mostly during the morning and eventing recovery periods. The house is kept cold at night and during the day so it has to climb in temperature a quite a bit.
Given my oversized boiler (55K needed with 145K supplied by a Weil Mclain EG-50 boiler), supply lines being only 3/4", and that I've adjusted the thermostat and added sufficient main vents (2 Gorton #2 & 1 Gorton #1 on a 30ft 2" Main pipe), the only solution that I've read about and seems to make a lot of sense is installing a time delay switch. That way, after it runs for a 1 minute and the radiators are hot, there can be a built-in delay of some kind (e.g. 10 minutes), before kicking in again.
Any recommendations on alternate solutions? If the above is the way to go, any recommendations on what to purchase, installation guides, etc.?
With short-cycling such a common issue, i would think there would be some common work-arounds (given that sometimes, as in my case, fixing the actual root cause cant easily happen).
