Grundfos Alpha "fighting" a Honeywell SmartResponse?
Looking to set up a primary / secondary heating system. Primary loop comes from an outdoor "boiler" (i.e. GARN). Secondary loops feed upstairs and downstairs radiant loops. I was going to have a thermostat (Honeywell) make the call for heat and turn on the pump (one thermostat / pump for each secondary loop). The primary loop was going to be a Grundfos Alpha 15-55. My question is whether the AutoAdapt feature of the Grundfos will conflict with the SmartResponse feature of the Honeywell? Both features "learn" about your heating requirements and make adjustments. My concern is that they are both trying to hit a moving target as they are constantly trying to adjust based on the adjustments made by the other system. Throw in the variable heat output of the GARN (different temp of water coming out) and my system may never stabilize. Any suggestions? Disable SmartResponse (if you can) or get a thermostat without that feature? Looking for a programmable 7-day thermostat.
