Weather compensation

Outdoor Sensor

Weather compensation can be achieved when the boiler is fitted with an optional outdoor sensor. Weather compensation works by measuring the temperature outside the home and adjusting the temperature (or flow) of the radiators inside. If the weather is particularly cold outside, the outdoor sensor will communicate with the boiler intelligently to increase the temperature inside. This process also works in reverse, as the outdoor temperature increases, the flow to the radiators too will decrease. This process allows the system to operate more efficiently by preventing spikes in heating activity. ErP Class 2, 2% additional efficiency.
