ok then but can I get the temperature a bit lower to say 45?
10:36 am, Thursday 10/10/13: Wondering if this question was answered. Oil fuel is costly where we're located, the boiler older and I'm asking if there is a way to adjust the thermostat below the reading on it to say, 45. This is 13 degress above freezing and I don't see why this wouldn't guarantee the pipes won't freeze.
I will need to contact my contractor who maintaims the home which is out of state. I'll try for an answer by tonight or tomorrow depending on reaching him. I'll be as quick as posible to wrap this up for the both of us.
Thanks on the thermostat, the contractor will look at it. I go found out the upstairs is 2 zoned, 1 for the 3 bedtrooms,1 bathroom in the back of the rancher, the other for the rest of the home, the small hallway one bathroom LR, Kitchen and Dining Room. I want to shut the bedroom thermostat off, is this advisable or once again do I neeed to run it at a minimal temperature. As a reminder, we have a oil burner andbaseboard heat?
I perhaps wasn't clear on this, the first floor is 1 zone, 4 rooms, and is rented and will be heated by the tenant. the whole house runs off of the same oil burner. The 2nd floor with the 2 additional zones is where I want to shut one zone for the back rooms and run just the one zone for the living areas at a 45 degree temperature.
Thanks for your patience and responses.
I believe I have a handle on it now.
Thanks for your help.
