In the apartment I am at I am just wondering how the boiler system works between all the units. Apparently its one water pipe going the whole perimeter of the floor but each apartment has it's own thermostat with the fin type baseboard heaters. So if my apartment is between two apartments with their baseboards off, how do I get flow to my apartment? I would assume the switch for these baseboards would open or close a valve to the whole pipe feeding between all the units. So I believe I am missing something.
Also what kind of thermostat can I use. Does any digital thermostat rated for 24V work? Not to sure whats actually going on when you turn the thermostat on. It's also only two low voltage two wires so it's not a bunch of coloured wires like other thermostats have. Thank You.
