Backpressure protection seriously over-cools my room

    Some additional context here: I have 7 flair vents (out of 9 total vents in the house - so 2 non-smart vents that are permanently open). I have an Ecobee thermostat with Flair acting as the set-point controller. Every room has an Ecobee sensor and 4 rooms also have a flair puck. We don't require much heating (we live in Southern California), so our system is set to cool only.

    We actually have two different back pressure algorithms - one that uses inactive rooms as dump zones and another that always sends extra air to active rooms.  It sounds like you'd like the former which is not the default.  I'll flag this with the team to take a look and reach out.  That said, if a room is getting way over conditioned there might be something else at play so it will be good for the team to take a look through the data.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Thanks, Dan, yes it sounds like this alternative algorithm may be exactly what I need. How can I enable this for my home?

    Thanks for the reply Dan.
    I didn't realize there was an alternative to the "inactive as dump zone".

    Thank you James Clarke and Daniel Myers for your responses. The team got the alternative algorithm activated and it has made a huge improvement to our house.

    It would be great if these different algorithms were described in the online documentation, and if there was a way to select which one we wanted through the app (maybe in an "advanced configuration" window?)

    Thanks again, you guys are awesome!
