Temperature stats in each room?

    Are temperature stats needed in each bed room or is it sufficient to have them all on the one zone?

    If each room is on a separate stat, are there any downsides and will the system actually be able to have varying temperatures in rooms that are side by side? If one room is set at say 17 degrees and the room next to it is set at 23 degrees, will the heat not naturally flow from the colder area to the warmer area.

    Any feedback appreciated, currently evaluating our systems and how many stats to install.

    Go for one in each room, people have different preferences and if someone is away you can turn down the heat in unused rooms.

    Probably what not what you meant.
    Go wireless stats in each room, controllable from the phone/computer

    The feedback I got from my installer was that this was not the best route for certain heatpumps and that having a system even split into multiple small zones is inefficient and causes excessive wear and tear on the compressor.

    By all means measure and analyze the individual room temperatures, but be very careful about your system compatibility with many zones.

    My mothers house has oil UFH and we cranked all the zones up to full and control the time and temp at the boiler now. Individual zones calling for heat intermittently was not allowing the boiler time to effectively condense.

    Get as many zones as your heating system permits It is especially good to have them in bedrooms and bathrooms.

    What are the flow and return temps at the boiler?

    What are the UFH flow and return temp settings?
