Control Honeywell Thermostats Online


Remote access to thermostats gives users the ability to monitor HVAC equipment and make adjustments when they are away from the home or building. This can be ideal for vacation homes, landlords, or simply people who want the ability to change heating and cooling settings before arriving home.

Honeywell’s RedLINK Internet Gateway works with any of their RedLINK-enabled thermostats. The gateway wires to an internet router and communicates wirelessly with thermostats using RedLINK signals (which tend to be as reliable as wires and have been successfully tested in homes up to 10,000 square feet). The Internet Gateway allows users to control thermostats online with Honeywell’s Total Comfort Connect website and apps, which require no additional usage fees. These resources give authorized users the ability to modify system (heat, cool, off, etc.) and temperature settings for multiple zones and buildings, while allowing them to provide up to six email-alert contacts. Each Internet Gateway can handle up to four thermostats, but multiple gateways can be accessed from the same online account. RedLINK thermostats work with several other wireless accessories including indoor and outdoor sensors, the Portable Comfort Control, and (on IAQ models) humidification equipment. For line-voltage applications, Honeywell offers the RedLINK-ready EConnect system.

Honeywell also offers several Wi-Fi thermostats, including select VisionPRO and FocusPRO models. Select Wi-Fi 9000 thermostats also allow voice-command adjustments to temperature settings. These Wi-Fi thermostats do not require an Internet Gateway. Instead, they connect to a building’s available Wi-Fi network. Honeywell’s Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats are accessible from the same Total Comfort Connect website and apps. They can serve as a more affordable way to gain remote access and can frequently be wired in place of existing low-voltage thermostats (note that a common wire is needed for operation).

Methods of Heat Transfer


Although many people assume that heat simply rises, it actually travels from warmer areas to colder areas in one of three ways: conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction transfers heat through physical contact, as warmer molecules shift their energy to colder ones. Convective heat transfer occurs in fluids (liquids and gases), including air. Warmer air is less dense than cooler air and rises above it continuously, creating ongoing convection currents. In radiant heat transfer, waves of heat energy travel through space from a warmer surface to a colder surface. Radiation occurs on a daily basis whenever the rays of the sun heat people or objects on the earth. Forced air and baseboard heating systems take advantage of convection currents, which allow rooms to heat up more quickly. Systems that include radiators or in-floor tubing (radiant heat) primarily use radiation, which warms surfaces rather than only the air.

Freeze-Protecting Garage Thermostats

Tom carries sophisticated thermostats that offer features including programmability, remote access, wireless sensors, and high-definition touchscreens. While these features can greatly enhance residential and commercial HVAC systems, more affordable basic thermostats probably make more sense for simpler jobs. Among these are garage or storage heating systems, where freeze protection, rather than comfort, is the primary goal. We offer a few different thermostats that are ideal for low-temperature/freeze-protection applications. Honeywell’s TH1100DV1000 (vertical) and TH1100DH1004 (horizontal) PRO 1000 Series thermostats feature a selectable “garage mode” that allows temperature settings as low as 35°F. These heat-only low-voltage models can be battery powered or hardwired, and have simple backlit displays. ICM Controls Frost Sentry Garage Thermostats can also be set down to 35°F and, like the aforementioned Honeywell thermostats, have a positive off switch. These thermostats can also lead to cost savings when buildings remain go unoccupied for extended periods, as they can be set 5°F to 10°F lower than standard thermostats and can be shut the system down completely.

Expansion Tanks: What Are They and Why Are They Important?


When water is heated, it expands, increasing the pressure in closed heating systems. Over time, these pressure fluctuations can damage the system’s components. An expansion tank is designed to alleviate this pressure and extend the life of your system. Here’s how it works.


Homeowners looking to maximize the efficiency and life expectancy of their heating and cooling systems may want to consider installing an expansion tank as an easy and inexpensive means of regulating water pressure and preventing costly damage to other components, including pipes.

An expansion tank is designed to relieve pressure in both potable water and closed hydronic heating systems. It ensures that constant pressure is maintained within the pipes so they do not get damaged from excess pressure. “An expansion tank in a heating system is an invaluable component that protects the entire system from the increased pressure and volume caused by heating,” asserts Daniel O’Brian, a member of our Tech Team at

“When water is heated, it expands,” O’Brian explains. “In a closed heating system there is only so much space in the pipes and the boiler. If the water is taking up more space and has nowhere to go, the pressure will increase and possibly damage the system, generally at its weakest points, until a leak or even a burst pipe results. An expansion tank is designed to relieve the stress, thereby increasing the life of the components in your entire heating system.”

Expansion tanks work by equalizing pressure throughout the system. An expansion tank is a small tank divided in two sections by a rubber diaphragm. One side is connected to the pipes of the heating system and contains water. The other side is dry and contains pressurized air, set at approximately 12 psi. As hot water enters the heating system, the pressure in the system increases. As pressure increases, the diaphragm in the expansion tank is pushed down. This compresses the air in the tank, creating more space for excess water to enter. This relieves excess pressure in the system and prevents pipes in the system from being damaged.


Installing an expansion tank is a relatively simple process that can typically be completed in less than an hour by a handy do-it-yourselfer. Some local building codes may require installation by a licensed plumber, however, so you should check with your municipal building department before proceeding with any installation.

Expansion tanks vary in capacity, ranging from tanks that hold as little as two gallons to large tanks that hold several hundred gallons. To determine the size needed for your system, offers a handy Expansion Tank Sizing Calculator. Use it to determine the size and model of the expansion tank that’s best suited for your system.

Prices for expansion tanks start at about $30 for small residential tanks and climb up to $800 to $1,000 for larger, commercial tanks. Leading brands include Extrol expansion tanks, manufactured by Amtrol, which are used for hydronic heating systems; the Watts ET series and Bell & Gossett HFT expansion tanks, both designed for use with closed hydronic heating systems; and Therm-X-trol expansion tanks, for use with potable water open systems.

If your home already has an expansion tank in place, you may want to check it periodically to make sure that the tank is functioning. To check if the expansion tank is working properly, simply place your hand on the tank and feel its temperature. The top portion of the tank should feel warm to the touch, and the bottom portion of the tank should be room temperature. If the entire tank is warm, it is likely that the tank has completely filled with hot water, which occurs only if the diaphragm fails. If this happens, the tank must be replaced immediately. offers a large selection of expansion tanks and accessories from the top manufacturers in the industry.

Water Heater Leak Detector


When a water heater starts to leak, it will not stop trying to produce hot water. In a worst-case scenario (a major leak with no one home to notice it), the damage can be severe. Taco’s WAGS valve senses such leaks to prevent this type of damage and provide peace of mind. The WAGS valve should be installed in a pan at the base of a water heater. All incoming supply water goes through the WAGS valve before it enters the water heater tank. When water levels in the pan get close to one inch, the valve cuts off the water supply so that the tank will not continue to refill. The valve cannot stop a leak, but it can limit damage to that caused by the water already in the tank. If used on a gas or oil-fired water heater, the WAGS valve must be used in conjunction with Taco’s GOKIT7200-1, which shuts off the supply of gas or oil to the unit.
