[access-uk] Re: talking central heating thermostat

Thanks very much Ibby. We have always had gas central-heating, and have our timer set to go on twice daily to heat the water. But when it's really cold we know how to put the heating on manually. When the clocks change, we switch it off exactly an hour before the timer is due to go on so that the time goes in sequence.


There will come a time when we will have to have a combi boiler installed, and when that happens, we'll try to get ours set up in a way you describe. Because ours is council property, there is no telling when they will decide to replace the system. We get it serviced twice a year and all seems ok with it at the moment. It isn't a job I'm looking forward to anyway because it'll be messy (smile.) We live in a flat as well, but it's big and airy, with no prospect of a dream house on the horizon (grin.)

Thanks again.

Jackie

Hi Jackie,
I purchased the 7 day time stat so that I could have the heating on at
different times at the weekend to the week.

Whilst we live in a small flat and the time stat in in the living room and
out boiler is in the kitchen it does very well in controlling the
temperature even around the flat.

I would still have the time stat when we move to a dream house I have in
mind but one thing to keep in mind is that the time stat has to be placed in
an area where ever you want as long as there is no direct sunshine hitting
the stat.

If it helps you, I secured my stat box on the wall using T shaped picture or
mirror plates. All I now have to do is just leave it alone and it just comes
on and turns off to the time set.
If you have Skype installed, I would be happy to talk with you further.

Kindest Regards,

Well Ibby it's food for thought when the old boiler in our home goes, and
hopefully that won't be me (smile.)  But seriously it's very nice for a
change that someone actually went to the bother of doing their homework so
that Chris could benefit from the Cobolt timer.  We all complain like hell
when people don't deliver, so it's nice to hear someone went the extra mile.

Hi Jackie and Chris,
We had a new boiler approx a year ago and I myself purchased a Cobolt
talking time stat and whilst one of the leads are quite short, I had my stat
mounted on a wall and the lead extended to the boiler by the electrician and
all works like a dream.

I must say Chris that's very impressive for an engineer to do that.  Talk
about give credit where it's due.

Hello,

I had a new boiler for the central heating system
installed last Thursday, also using a grant from
Warm Front.  The heating engineer who did the
assessment suggested putting in a mechanical
timer, as he said that I wouldn't get any help
from a digital timer.  However, when they arrived
last Thursday, they brought the Cobolt talking
timestat with them - I hadn'ttold the engineer
about this product, so he must have done some good research.

The electrician removed the plug and socket from
the timer and connected it up permanently to the
boiler.  It works well, but because the lead that
takes the current to the boiler is so short, the
timer has to stand on a worktop, which is not an ideal place for it.

Hope this helps.

Christopher

Hi all

I think this has been covered on here before, so apologies for repetition.

I had a quick look on Google, but didn't find anything.  Is there such a
thing around?

We just had a new combi boiler installed, with a fancy new digital
thermostat control.  My partner hates manuals,  and I can't operate the
thermostat on my own.

Any help appreciated.

Also, I'm sure a lot of you may already be aware, but for those who are
not.  We had the boiler fitted free of charge, which would have cost just
under £2500 if we would have had to of paid for it.

We applied to the warm front grant scheme, and the rest was easy.

The main eligibility for the grant is, certain benefits, e.g. dla, etc, and

you either own the property, or rent it privately.  They will also carry
out insulation work.

Its worth knowing about, as we were about to spend £2500 of our own money.
It doesn't matter if you are working, as its not income related.

Best wishes.

Terry
