aquastat set temps
I have a three level 2800 sq foot house with a four zone hydronic heating system. The boiler is a New Yorker FR-122-W with a Honeywell LB124A aquastat. I have a summer/winter hookup.
The house is a converted barn structure. When we built the house we were unable to find vintage cast iron radiators on our budge, but recently I acquired some for free and so I changed the main living zone from fin tube to radiator heat. Everything went OK and my wife and I love the change.
My question is can I or should I lower the aquastat settings? Last heating season I had them set at 180/160. Is there any saving to be had by lowering the set points?
One other zone in the lower level (finished at a later time) is also cast iron radiators. The two other zones are much less frequently used and are fin tube.
