    I have two zones on my Burnham forced hot water boiler. It turns out that the zone 2 thermostat is poorly placed and the zone 1 thermostat could be adequate for the whole house. Is there an easy way to run both zones from the same thermostat? Is that what Zone 1 priority means?

    Hope this isn't too DIY and thanks for your help.

    You could just wire the 2nd zone circulator or zone value to the other zones so it would turn on/off at the same time.

    Beter yet, I'd just relocate the other thermostat. Nice to be able to lower bedrooms during the day, liviing room/kitchen during the night when each gets little use. (If the piping is zoned that way of course)

    Yes there is a very simple way but unfortunately It am not allowed to tell you. I would violate the rules I believe...Sorry

    P.S. To answer your second that is not what Priority means. Zone 1 Priority means that you when zone 1 calls for heat (usualley domestic hot water) you do not allow the other zones to come on until zone 1 is satisfied.
