simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab Figure 1. Most likely original circuit. If you were really fortunate the live feed to the thermostat would have originated at the original switch. You could then have connected it directly to your new controller.

The Flair line of thermostats are designed to control a Flair damper that is allowing more or less air into the room. The Open and Closed Signals move the damper in that direction. I believe the Flair is an variable system, ...

This article provides excellent information about maximizing thermal mass: Phase Change Materials (PCMs): There is growing interest in the use of PCMs as a lightweight thermal mass substitute in construction. All materials require a large energy input to change state (i.e. from a solid to a liquid or a liquid to a gas). This energy does not change ...
