House is not heating up fast enough
I just moved into a house with radiant floor heating and found the house is not heating up fast enough. When the thermostat,is calling for heat, the pump comes on and then the boiler fires up. The temperature on the boiler goes from f 130 to f 200 in about 7 minutes and then it shuts down. Before the boiler shuts down, the pump turns off (Is this right? How does the pump make the hot water go to the loop when it's off?) So the boiler and pump stays off for 20 mins before the pump starts going and sending the cold water back to the boiler and then the boiler fires up and runs for another 7 mins until it reaches f 200. So the cycles go on like this. It seems like the there is only 2 cycles in an hour. Could this be the reason why the house is not heating up fast enough? The thermostat constantly calling for heat from 7 AM to 6 PM but the room temperature goes from only f 64 to f 69!!!!!!
