I believe the mechanical timers with rotary dials are still available. However, 
if this talking one works satisfactorily, it does have more flexibility and may 
be better long term.

Is it possible to get the timer Peter wants through the gas or elelectricity 
board? I remember having one years ago from British Gas.

Peter, I think you need to bear in mind that what you get is a 3 pin mail plug 
connected to a timer, with a socket whose output is controlled by the timer.  
It's therefore fine for turning on electrical devices which will start and stop 
when current is or is not present.  
 
If the heating system will respond in that way and can co-exist with the water 
set-up, you may be OK, although I have my doubts.
 
The other point is that, from memory, think the max loading of the unit is only 
2KW which would presumably be an issue for electric heating.  As I'm not an 
electrician, as the ads say "always read the label!"

Evening

 

Have been looking at the description of the Cobalt talking timestat with a view 
to having it fitted to control my central heating only - not the hot water. The 
description reads that it has "2 independent timers adjustable individually for 
every day of the week". Has anybody used it in this way and if so could you 
comment on how easy to use and effective it is.

 

Thanks.
