Another thermostat question for one pipe steam system
This probably will be the millions thermostat question on
this board but I need some help selecting a new thermostat and specifically the
right CPH setting.
I have a two family house (two floors) with a one pipe steam
system. However, instead of cast iron radiators, the system has iron/steel
(black pipe) find tube convectors. I
want to replace the old original Honeywell round thermostat with a digital one.
Almost all of the threads I read here recommend getting a Honeywell Vision pro
series thermostat with adjustable CPH and set it to one cycle per hour. This
setting would probably do well with cast iron radiators, but I am concerned it
might not work well with convectors since they get hot and cold at much faster
Could anyone please advise on a correct CPH setting
for my system?
Any advice is appreciated.
PS. I read somewhere
( I think on this forum) that select White Rogers thermostats have an option to
select the type of radiators in the system but I can’t seem to find a model
that does it. Did anyone hear about such a feature on their thermostats?
