Multi heat / multi zone thermostat control

Posted by mbx5 (My Page) on

I am replacing an old oil burner with a brand new HS Tarm pellet boiler, will be running it in parallel with a wood boiler (so I can burn some wood, but that I can bypass), and also a heat pump system (heat pump for backup, and a/c) in 2 zones (upstairs and downstairs).

The boilers will be split into 4-5 zones, one of which will be a dump zone.

My question - what is out there for a thermostat system to control all of these? I don't want 300 thermostats all over the place - hoping to find something to keep it to 1 thermostat per zone.

I saw the www.networkthermostat.com site - anyone ever try those?

Not sure the Nest thermostats will be enough - might need something more elaborate..

Thanks in advance.

RE: Multi heat / multi zone thermostat control

I have something similar -- furnace/ac system and separate HW heating system.
I have 5 zone valves controlled by 5 t-stats for the HW BB heating system and one furnace/AC thermostat(house is a ranch+ basement)
Installation was cheap and works well. Furnace is only for backup backup.
Not sure if I would spend the money for a more elaborate electronic system and sacrifice reliability. I think the the old standard 24 volt electrical is more reliable.
