Underfloor heating systems are usually controlled by a room thermostat per room each. Smart Thermostats replace existing wired room thermostats in such setups and allow you to control each room individually. You can replace all underfloor heating thermostats in your home with tado° Smart Thermostats or only some of them.
You can enhance this setup by installing an Extension Kit to control the boiler.
1. Smart Thermostats control underfloor heating rooms
Smart Thermostats control rooms with underfloor heating independently but do not turn on the boiler.
The boiler fires on demand, based on the flow temperature, or a schedule set on the boiler controller. Rooms without Smart Thermostats remain controlled by conventional room thermostats.
2. Smart Thermostats control all rooms with underfloor heating and an Extension Kit controls the boiler (recommended)
tado° turns on the boiler when any room calls for heat and heats the individual rooms.
This setup allows ideal temperature control of every room and ensures the boiler does not turn on in vain.
3. Smart Thermostats control some rooms with underfloor heating and an Extension Kit controls the boiler
tado° will turn on the boiler when any of the tado° controlled rooms calls for heat.
The rooms not controlled by tado° only receive heat when one of the tado° controlled rooms requests heat.
