We just purchased a home in NH with radiant floor heating throughout the first floor great and family rooms controlled by two thermostats. The one for the family room is near the fireplace.

we'd like to put a woodstove in the old fireplace for extra warmth in family room area, and for back up for power outage.

However, former owner says you cannot do this due to long recovery time of intra-slab radiant floor heat.

Any advice out there?

Should we move the thermostat?

Thank you for the information on the outdoor reset control.

The tekmar system we have has an outdoor reset, but I am not sure how to set it back ten degrees from the room setting.

Also, does oeprating a wood stove require an adjustment in the heating curve?

Should we ratchet the curve up or down to get a better set up when the stove is not in use?

Thank you again.
