Worked really great. The downside is if I turn on cooling during the day, it will heat despite the thermostat not calling for heat.

Lost about 8 degrees last night.

Pretty cool, and an easy mod.

xyz,

Kind of takes the "automatic" out of your automation... :p

Sounds to me like you are just forcing water through the solar panels, whether the sensor is calling for "cool" or not. ???

Right. I could not get the ET to work correctly. When I engage nighttime cooling, it would start heating even when the set point is lower than current temp. Turn off nighttime cooling, and solar works correctly.

The only think i ink I didn't try is telling it I had a heat pump. Maybe that is the trick? Till then, I can cool on the nights I want it.

Would be be nicer to be temp controlled though, like we were talking about.
