My parents' house has a two-zone, in-floor hot water heating system, currently controlled by two separate Honeywell Chronotherm III thermostats. One of the thermostats is non-functional as the wires were cut somewhere between the garage (where the heating system is) and the thermostat.
Since the wires are cut, I'm thinking I'd like to install a wireless system like the FocusPro. However, at the moment, I'm trying to assess the system remotely (we don't live in the same area) and am trying to figure out if this is doable.
The first thing I'm not really sure of: given this is circulating water for radiant heat, what type of HVAC is this?...is it a furnace? heat pump? water circulator? I have a few photos taken of what I think might be the controllers that connect to the thermostats, and what I think is the hot water heater system.
I'll have physical access to the system next week, so I'll be able to look more closely at the units etc. But on the face of it: is there any reason why a system like the FocusPro with the equipment interface module couldn't replace these thermostats? Or, is there perhaps a better option? Thanks!
