How to calculate and adjust the flow temperature
In order to calculate the maximum flow temperature, you would have to work out the heat losses for each room, and make sure the lowest flow temperature you can run all the radiators and still achieve the required heat output.
However if you don’t have calculations we suggest to adjust from the default of 75 degrees downwards a degree or two until your system continues to work properly and heat your house up. Go back up if you have gone too low and your house is not warming up.

The maximum flow temp can also be set using an engineer diagnostic level. This is usually outside the scope of a user and can cause possible risk to the boiler, so we cannot provide this information here.
