New(ish) home... new things to try....

So, getting started on doing some decorating and changes on the new home means that it's also an opportunity to try something new...

Idratek "Intelligent Automation" hardware.

The initial intention is to use this to provider greater control in the conservatory -- a room which we prefer not to heat on days we are not using it, but when we [i]do[/i] want to use it, we want it heated & maintained at a correct temperature. Whilst the rad has a TRV on it already, the proximity of the TRV to the radiator compared to the overall size of the room means it's really not very effective. And the position of the radiator on the circuit currently makes a zone value impossible to fit without completing re-plumbing the system.
