Need help choosing controls - an outdoor reset and more
Need help choosing an outdoor reset, it's really hard comparing units and knowing the ins and outs of each. Would like it to monitor both the indoor and outdoor temperatures, along with warm weather shutdown.
We have an 85% Burnham gas hot water boiler with two zones, each with a circulator, and it's controlled by a Taco SR504EXP box. The Burnham ODR module lacks the indoor sensor and the warm weather shutdown, so we're looking at aftermarket.
The boiler has a tendancy to short cycle and is oversized for needs. I've read contradicory information as to if a fuel economizer, like the Intellicon HW+, would be beneficial to address that. Also reading about variable speed pumps and other things like bypass which might address short cycling. What's the preferred choice for eliminating short cycling because of an oversize boiler? We don't want the electronics to wear out prematurely.
Thanks for your help!
