Overheating upstairs zone - JAYLIN

I have the same issues. I have a hot water boiler. All replaced within the last 3 years. I have 3 zones in my home, 3 thermostats. The only one upstairs is completely off, yet heat continues to pour out of the radiators. I have had a few different people ( both friends and heat contractors) come in to look at. From what I am told, my heat pipes are one continuous loop. The hot water runs through all of the piping............including upstairs. I'm still not understanding why I can't get control of the extreme heat upstairs and try to balance it out downstairs.

Jay, I moved your post to a new thread. It's impossible to follow a thread that has more than two people asking questions. We call it 'hijacking'...

If you have one continuous loop, there is no way that you have three thermostats. There must be a way to control each loop individually. If someone installed three thermostats and somehow 'rigged' it up to work in some fashion without actually installing proper zone controls, it won't work properly.

In your case, I would suggest that you set up a free account at Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket and upload some CLEAR, IN FOCUS, WELL LIGHTED, LARGE ENOUGH FOR OLD DUDES TO SEE pic of your system. Come back here and post a link to your PUBLIC album for us to view.

In addition to any 'close' shots that you take, please step back and take a few shots from different angles of the ENTIRE system, so we can relate the various photos.
