Eff of your boiler. The lower the return water temp, the more it condensates and the higher the eff. is.
So if you run it the way it is at 180 degrees for a year, your eff. for the year will be maybe 88% eff.
Now if you install the out door controller , the water temp. will be 180 degrees at outdoor temp. of 0 and
below. If it was 70 degrees outside , your water temp would be 130 degrees. So your water temp. will modulate between 180 hi to 130 low depending on how cold it is out side. So if you are heating at lower water temps a lot of the time your boiler will condensate a lot more and your yearly eff. could be 97% eff. So the object is to keep the return water temp a low as possable. gottja,,,
So you bought a hi eff. boiler to save on heating bills, so do you want no outdoor control and 88% or use outdoor control and and 97% eff.??? I think I should probably put the outdoor sensor out side tomorrow,,Gottja, Did i explain this good enough.  YEP YoU sure as hell did,, I understand that I should keep my friggin hands in my pockets,,RIGHT????Later Paul
