Thoughts on Outdoor reset
So I noted in a separate post (about adding a zone) that I was replacing my ~30yr old WM CG-7=SPDN with a new WM CGA-7-PIDN and like with the zones I was also getting conflicting feedback on the outdoor reset from the plumbers quoting. One was adamant that the outdoor resets are still not ready for primetime and don't heat/work to most customer expectations and recommended I not install it (actually they said they would not be willing to install it but would do everything else). Another said it works fantastic and saves a good amount of money (especially with the weird winters we are having now with temp swings we've seen).
Note for reference on weather, I live in NYC.
What are your thoughts on the outdoor reset? Any issues/concerns? Thoughts on the plumbers concerns?
On a related note, is it possible to install the outdoor reset and just deactivate it for the time being? I'm partial (for a few reasons) to the plumber who raised concerns so was thinking maybe I can have him install but not activate...I can go a season with the new boiler (and new ecobee t-stat) and see how it goes and then next season activate the ODR and see what I experience. Is that possible without much difficulty?
Thanks in advance!
