I have a gas boiler connected to my thermostat and everything is fine. Sometimes even with the right temp it feels a little cold because the heat did not go on that whole day and the furniture etc in the rooms are cold. Usually I turn up the thermostat for 15-30 min and it warms everything up just enough and it stays off until the morning.
I wanted to connect a hardwired timer the kind used for bathroom fans that have a mechanical switch that connects and disconnects 2 pairs of wires. Can I put such a timer before the thermostat and basically short out the wires temporarily so the heat goes on without having to remember to go back and reset the thermostat?
the timer i have is simmilar to this
