Frequent questions

What is the Starter IRSAP NOW?

The Starter is the element of the NOW System that allows you to manage the heat generator (boiler or heat pump). In addition, if your heat generator is ready for power modulation (you can check it on the boiler instruction booklet), IRSAP Starter can optimize its efficiency.

How does the Starter work?

The Starter is powered by cable, by direct connection to the heat generator (boiler or heat pump) on which it is installed, or by connection to the electrical cables of the old thermostat, in case it is replaced.

Why use the Starter, what are the advantages?

The IRSAP NOW system optimizes the management of the heat generator (boiler or heat pump) to the maximum. This greatly reduces boiler ignitions, reducing consumption. According to studies conducted by the University of Bergamo on our first version of the NOW System, the reduction in energy consumption has reached 42%.
For this new version, studies are still ongoing: we will update this section as soon as the results are available.

How can I force the heat generator to turn on?

If it is necessary to force the boiler or heat pump to turn on (e.g. for the annual control of the boiler), you will simply have to press the central button of the Starter: the boiler will turn on and the central button will flash red:


In what cases do I need the Starter?

In general, the Starter is useful for all those who have an autonomous heating system, or in any case have the possibility to turn the boiler on/off. In addition, the Starter can replace a thermostat with remote control of the boiler.
IRSAP Starter is necessary if you already have a thermostat with remote control of the boiler or heat pump (e.g. radio frequency thermostat) or a boiler control module.

WARNING: If you have a boiler with a control unit and you want to replace the Starter, it is possible that by replacing the original module it is no longer possible to view all or some diagnostic data.
Contact your boiler technician for more information.

Where should the Starter be installed?

The Starter can be installed near the boiler or where there are direct connections with the heat generator (boiler or heat pump).
