Quick question as we get in to colder temperatures. This is my first winter in this house (brand new home build), and so I don’t have any data from last winter.
Originally I configured my AUX to turn on at 35*, and it kicked on this morning for the first time, however I noticed that the heat pump was still heating up the house, so I set it down to 20*.
But that brought up a question, if I were to leave my AUX at 35*, how will Beestat determine what my Balance Point is? Won’t the heat from the AUX mess up Beestat’s ability to say ‘at 30* outdoor temperature, the heat pump will produce 1*/hr’ or something like that?
I’m including screenshots for reference. You can see when the AUX turned on, then I turned it off (set it to 20*). Also you’ll notice on the Temperature Profile there is no ‘current temp’ because the current temp is 31*, and is off the chart, even though I’ve done the Solar Gain regenerate trick. I assume this is due to not enough samples. Not a big deal, it will fill in eventually, just wanted to note.
