Underfloor Heating Thermostat

Hydronics heats the floor, and hence the building, through hot water piping. The water in this pipe must be regulated to keep the room at a constant set temperature, as determined by the occupant. The device that regulates this temperature is the thermostat.

 

The thermostat is a component of the hydronics system that senses the rooms temperate and keeps it at a set point by making any necessary adjustments. It does this by switching the heating device accordingly.

 

The thermostat is the main control for the hydronic room heating system. The home owner sets the desired temperature and the thermostat regulates the valve and heat. This is a feedback system, a self-regulating way for a heating mechanism to be controlled. Old fashioned techniques, such as an open fireplace, required the heating element (i.e. the fire) to be manually increased or decreased in size in order to increase or decrease the temperature. Self-regulating systems automatically make this adjustment, in a manner faster than a human operator could. The temperature is set and the heating automatically changes to maintain this temperature.

 

A well-designed thermostat is an essential component to a well operating hydronics heating system.
