I installed radiant pex tubing underneath my kitchen floor which is tiled. It's a separate zone from my baseboard heating in the rooms next to the kitchen. I have 2 thermostats on that floor, one for the baseboards in the living/dining room and one for the pex tubing in the kitchen. The thermostats are *edit-->10 feet apart mounted on the walls. I'm thinking they will cause a problem for me due to the different type of heating styles they both do. The tubing will need more time to heat but the baseboard may trigger the kitchen's t-stat to shut off prematurely.
I'm hooking this system up in it's final stages within the next couple of weeks and would like to know if there is a different type of controller I can use for the kitchen radiant system. I may need a timer of some sorts if I'm thinking about this right. Right now the 2 t-stats are installed but not controlling anything until final install, but I can see the temps are the same on them. Could I have used both rooms as one zone? The whole area of that floor is only 800 sf.
