Looking for some advice. I've replaced a bunch of baseboard heating thermostats with the Aube T209 (http://www.aubetech.com/products/pro...161&noLangue=2) which really works great. The T209 cycles the heat every 15 seconds. It has resulted in the room having very comfortable heat with a tight temperature swing (not the old wild swings of almost 5C with the old bi-metal thermostats I have replaced).
My question is this:
One room has the baseboards connected to a regular 24vac thermostat using an older honeywell relay (and older R841C1227 - http://www.pexuniverse.com/honeywell...c-heater-relay). In my research, it says that this relay will allow "4 - 6 cycles per hour".
I am installing a honeywell TH5110D thermostat to connect to the room with baseboard heaters linked by this relay. Honeywell recommends 9 cycles per hour (9 CPH) for any electric device. Judging by my experience with the Aube T209 with 15 second cycles on baseboard heat, I want the thermostat to be set for either 9 CPH or 12 CPH so there is tight temperature control and even comfortable electric heat in the room (and a higher CPH if the thermostat will allow it, but I believe off the top of my head the TH5110D has 12 as the highest CPH setting).
Will setting the CPH on the TH5110D to either 9 or 12 end up blowing the relay since it is rated at "4 to 6 cycles per hour"?
... on a further note, will there be any efficiency loss if I set the CPH this high? I can't imagine there being such with electric baseboard heat being 100% efficient, but would love to hear any ideas.
