Just installed a heat manager on my own boiler with tankless coil. I installed both sensors one for heat and one for domestic. My hot water for domestic gets a little chilly untill boiler comes on any suggestion thanks John :thumbsup:

Get rid of that deluxe timer you installed.
They admit, it doesn't work well(do much to save fuel) when the outdoor temps are low.

You would save more, by installing an aquastore tank. And not maintaining as high of a boiler min temp.

Damn it! I went to pick up a 1:1 out door reset astat for my boiler last year, and the guy at the counter told me about this heat manager. ok, so he sold me. I've had it sitting around since last spring. i finally put it in and seems to work ok. if what you guys are saying is accurate then i will be one pissed off Joe! What have you guys found to be the issues?

Don't work if you have a tankless coil in your boiler.
Don't work at outdoor temps below 20°F(outdoor reset does though).
Still lets the boiler temp increase too much, if you use a setback thermostat. Since it bases its temps on length of heat call.
