Any idea how long it runs per cycle? Once per 24 hours can be deceiving, does it run for an hour or for 23 hours?

Sometimes it's for 1 to 2 hours, sometimes it's 4 to 5. It all depends on the temperature swing outside most times. I got the new thermostat but didn't hook it up yet. I have the batteries in it and noticed there is a 4 to 5 degree difference in the room temperature. I'm going to get it hooked up today and see if anything changes. If not I may send you a pic on my install to see if anything stands out.

Oh wow, very well insulated it seems. Ideally, for max efficiency, the pump would run 24/7 at the minimum water temp required to heat the space but that's unreasonable in most cases. Although 95* SWT is considerably lower than most already, your cycle times say it could be lowered further yet. Very impressive
