Trench heating control system

Posted on 17/11/2012 7:57am

What is the best way of controlling room temperature when using a Jaga trench heating system in just one room of a house. The central heating ring main flow in the whole house is controlled by a thermostat in a different room.

    You can control the trench off a separate room stat if you so wish, especially if you are using the trench to keep glazing condensation free. The one problem with having one control stat to control all units around the house is that, ideally, you would want different rooms to be different temperatures, for example a bedroom would usually be cooler (18c) compared to a living room (21c) - a house stat will switch off once the area around it has got to the desired temperature, leaving some rooms cooler / hotter than actually desired, I have the same problem in my flat and looking to replace all the units with individual thermostatic heads.

    You could use an inline valve or zonal valve for just the one room where the trench is. The best thing to do is to speak to your plumber / heating installer who will be able to assist you further.

    Kind regards.
