Lower the thermostat when you will not be in the room. Better to get a programmable thermostat which will allow you to set when the heat goes on for a weekly schedule. Smart phone apps have this kind of wireless control for heating, too. As Aloysius commented on, thermostat shouldn't be so low that pipes freeze and burst.
temperature in a room is simple physics. the number of joules of energy you put in, regardless of temperature or source, makes the room hotter. light bulbs, gas furnaces, candles, all add heat energy to the room. similarly, every joule you remove makes the room colder. this is usually due to heat loss through walls, doors and windows. it can be ...
There is no way to determine with any certainty what the AFUE was for the boiler in the past. A service technician can check the flue gasses with a flue gas analyzer and determine what the AFUE currently is. A boiler can keep operating near its original efficiency as long as it is properly maintained. On an annual basis, at minimum the following things ...
Every bleeder. Some may not even be on radiators (depends on system layout/design - bleeder elbows are common, but more on baseboard than radiator type systems. If there is air trapped in a radiator, no water gets pumped through it. Circulator pumps are very limited devices. They don't do well at pushing air bubbles around the loop.
The model is a "Thermostat programmable hebdomadaire castorama", as shown in the below image (found on the Internet). A closely-related manual (not the exact model, but the same functionalities) is available: 810203_a1.pdf
My experiace with these is the fan is not pushing enough air, thus the overheat after several minutes, taking the cover off actually created a higher fire danger since the airflow is not being directed across the coils . With the power off spin the fan if it stops in less than 5 seconds the motor needs oil, a light penetrating oil like WD40 will help if you ...
What is the cover doing that could be causing this unit to keep tripping off? The cover is holding in heat and the reset you are pushing is tripped by heat. Usually, the reset trips because the unit is drawing too much current which creates heat in the thermal trip device. Is there anything blocking air flow to the unit? The heater needs air to flow ...
