Room Thermostat


Postby Agricola » Mon Jan 11, 2010 1:20 pm

My room thermostat needs to be replaced as it has developed a fault (it is about 9 years old), it is a Lifestyle ETS1, can someone please tell me what is the new replacement product code number and also who is the maker of lifestyle stats?

Drayton! I would imagine the new RTS 1 is a replacement.

On the subject of thermostats I have the following problem. I have just had an Ariston CLAS HE SYSTEM Condensing gas boiler installed. There is seperate control of water heating and space heating. I am having trouble with the room thermostat. Basically there is a large 'dead zone' on the thermostat. For instance if the thermostat is set to 18deg, the heating will come on until the thermostat switches it off at 18deg. The room temperature will then fall and the heating will not come on again until the temperature drops to about 13deg. This means that the house is getting cold again until the thermostat reactivates the heating at 13deg.
On my old boiler the thermostat had a very tight control on the boiler which was regularly switching on and off to maintain room temperature.
Is this a faulty thermostat or something to do with the system?
I suspect the engineer will replace the thermostat. If he does so it will be the third thermostat fitted to the system.

Some thermostats work by using a bi-metal strip.
Often they have a screw to enable adjustment.

:D With regard to my previous post on Jan 20 it seems that I may have an answer. I have been talking to my central heating engineer and it seems the problem is with the thermostat. As the temperature rises it seems that the dead zone gets larger, which would cause the effect which I have. The engineer is fitting a thermostat of a different make.

improvement?

The engineer has fitted a Danfoss thermostat which has solved the problem for me. I do not know the model number. The dead zone is now down to about 1 degC.
