    I'm curious if there are specific thermostats for boilers or at least some that will work better with a boiler. We bought a house last year and replaced the boiler, when the heat comes on it either heats ten degrees past where I set it or will drop ten degrees past where it should be before it comes on, I know little...err nothing really about boilers so maybe this is just how they work, oh and if it matters it's a commercial size boiler (house is 4200 sq ft + basement) and has two zones...any suggestions or input would be appreciated...thankya!

    Most standard ones will work with boilers. Some have a special setting for boilers that will shut them off before reaching the set point, to prevent overheating of the space.

    A properly installed heating system will provide 100% comfort......something overshooting 10 on the thermostat will not provide. Your heating system is not working as intended, have a Tech look at it and fix it.

    And by the way, 4200 sq. ft and ONLY 2 zones? That is a poor setup in my opinion. I can't amagine that comfort is possible with so few zones in a mammoth house. Maybe there is lots more zones you are not aware of.
