Question

Do I need a floor sensor for hydronic system?


I have a Triangle Tube f35 oil-fired boiler (now discontinued). House is 1,200 sq/ft living and 400 sq/ft garage. Each on separate hydronic zones. There is no mixer valve installed and I have the hydronic water set at 110 degrees F.

Will installing a new thermostat with a floor sensor save me fuel? OR should I do something else entirely? I'm looking for ideas here.

My current room temp is 68 F. For the last 34 days I consumed 200 gallons of heating oil for a wonderful $650 per month heating bill. I need to do something to try and offset this. House is a 5 star home built in 2007.

Any help would be much appreciated.
