Are battery-operated thermostats an option?

    off the grid thermostatts

    Have a client that we did a radiant heat job for. This house uses PV for all power. They have radiant heat in skinny slab, several zones. They have asked us to install programable thermostatts.

    I wanted to see if anybody out there could recommend a thermostat that will not require a lot of power. Thanks for the help. todd

    Any one of our VisionPro ...

    Programmables, and FocusPro Non-programmables can be either system or battery powered. Some use AAA, some AA, regular alkaline batteries, available anywhere. Those stats are available from any Honeywell distributor.

    zone valve power

    I'd be more concerned about the power the zone valves need?

    I guess I'll jump in here since offgrid/power system is my hobby. they may have to add more generation capacity to cover additional load. They probably should have designed a TRV based floor/room temp control going into this.(Oventrop)..I see this senario all the time where 2 differant bodies missed the boat on design and Later are pursuing a Fix. Sorry for sounding a little harsh but Off grid applications and design require a somewhat outside the box thinking on all fronts.. Your right J-P ..What about the power robbing zone valves. Paul
