Thermostat Swing Settings
I'm using a Lux programmable thermostat with steam heat. I'm trying to follow recommendations I've read to limit cycles per hour, but this thermostat only lets me control that by temperature cut in and cut out swing, rather than cycles per hour. Settings are in .25 degree increments between .25 and 2.5. Factory default is .25. 1,800 SF house with 8 radiators, all get steam pretty quickly. I'm thinking of setting the swing to 1 degree. So, if set at 66, would come on at 65 and cut off at 67, for example. Has anyone had experience with this type of thermostat setting with a steam boiler and what are your thoughts to limit heating cycles?
