Considering installing some on some hot water radiators  on 2nd floor.

    What kind of piping scheme

    Does your system use, Joe? Do you know?

    I'm 3/4 of the way through a total overhaul converting my mono flow system over to a two-pipe reverse return setup and had a few zones running with TRV's when it was cold.  Very neat!

    Sort of like a living organism the way each radiator reacts to its own micro climate zone.  For instance, two kitchen radiators on either side of door.  Set TRV's to same setting, but radiator that gets the draft from our entryway will warm and the other won't need to.  Kitchen still comfortable.

    Before, they were combined on a single zone pump and both would be cooking, along with a radiator in a bedroom.

    I'm stoked to get it done...

    Buderus set-up

    I installed a Buderus panel in my bathroom with their by-pass valve on a single pipe system. Very nice to be able to control that room. I'll be doing the same elsewhere as time allows.
