Buderus High and Low temp settings for each season

I did not opt for the climate sensing unit that reads outside temps to adjust the high and low settings on the burner.

Can someone help me determine what these settings should be for each season. I live on LI, NY and experience significant climate change all 4 seasons.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Is there an inside thermostat as well? Usually outside sensors are for #6 oil burners where there is no inside thermostat.

I have 2 inside thermostats. The Logitech unit (which I did not buy) is the unit that measures outside air temps to adjust the burner.

However, the burner has a high and low temp setting that can easily be controlled.

Can anyone tell me where these should be set for the summer? High temp and low temp.


Thanks
John

Does your boiler make your domestic hot water?

Yes, I have a small water tank that is heated by the Buderus burner. It is the same color as the burner so I am going to assume it is a Buderus unit as well. I live alone a draw very little hot water, essentially, once per day for a shower.

I also have 2 zones of heat but I keep the lower level cooler.

With a Buderus & not having a domestic coil, I don't understand having a low limit. Normally they are used only on boilers with domestic coils. I'd set the high around 160 & the low as far down as it will go & leave it there all year.

What aquastst do you have? Is it the beckett aquasmart?

IMO make it a cold start and turn the low off... The eff manager should be set to high for max savings...

Set the high limit to 180f is good. The control should vary the water temp on a call for heat and is based on thermal imaging..

That is if you have this control...
