    zoning a monflow system

    Have to zone a monoflow system, but to hard wire 14 remote thermos in an old plaster wall house is a nitemare, are there "wireless thermostats available?...And how do I zone a monflow anyway, by valving the returns of each diverter?...

    Not advisable to valve a monoflow. You will kill the flow downstream of the valve.

    maybe install non-electric temp. reg. valves on each radiator w/ remote sensor

    I agree with the above, but FYI, Honeywell has a series of wireless t-stats.

    I would like to get them with belt clips, so SHE can have it warm when she's in an area of the house, but it can drop to my temp when she's not. It's not really feasible, but it beats the thermostat wars...

    I'm still trying to figure out why,at night in the dead of winter, we have the electric blanket on high, the heat set well, and the WINDOW OPEN.
    I would like to say that I know better than to ask, but the reality of it is that I am afraid of the answer...

    Re-pipe it start to finish!!! Separating it into the number of zones you want.

  • Not advisable to zone any system that highly with digital thermostats. Probably impossible with a monoflow system.

    Consider Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs). These will "zone" each emitter, but they are NOT digital (e.g. either on or off). They are proportional. In most circumstances they will be in a semi-on condition that strives to just maintain the desired setting.

    TRVs are moderately compatible with monoflow systems. Bypass lines around each emitter are required. This is NOT a DIY proposition unless you study, study, study and have LOTS of time and energy to devote to the problem. A knowledgeable pro will save you much time and aggravation.

    Note the "moderately compatible" comment regarding TRVs on monoflow systems. The present system must be carefully assessed to see if the conversion is feasible. Even in the best circumstances, the system will not perform as comfortably or as efficiently as one using two pipes. Danfoss (likely the premier manufacturer of TRVs conceeds these points in an exceptional study on just this subject). Sorry, but I don't have the link. It was posted here years ago and I printed, but cannot find the paper at their US site.
