    Viconics thermostat

    Is there anyway to override or hack the thermostat? It is always to hot in my room and I'm not able to change the temperature and sometimes the heat gets stuck on and gets over 80 degrees and I have to turn the breaker off, it's alittle split system from what I can tell.

    Yes, I assume someone is controlling the temp remotely but just does a poor job

    There is a very easy way to get rid of BMS control.......but I don't think who ever has control would be ok with it.

    Are you sure it's overheating, and not undercooling? The purpose of BMS systems is to save money. If it is overheating, it is wasting money. This could be an equipment issue that needs addressing. Or BMS has an issue. Have someone look into it.

    You need to check with the building engineer.
    It's not if your doing it right it's whether your doing the right thing that is important.
