Thermostat for Central Heating


Postby stuartn2825 » Tue Nov 25, 2008 7:51 am

Hi, I am looking at installing a thermostat in my hallway to try and control the temperature throughout my flat. Would one thermostat be enough? The problem is the shape of the flat - the gas combi boiler is at one end and the bedrooms are at the other, my 7 month old daughter is waking up through the night freezing hence the need to install some sort of thermostat system to try and maintain a constant temp throughout the house. I assume these thermostats have to be hard wired to the main central heating control box? This could cause a problem due to the location of the combi boiler and the fact that its a flat so access to lofts/underfloors is virtually non existent.
Appreciate any advice you guys can give me.

Thanks
Stuart

Wireless thermostats are available and work well. They are however more expensive than wired ones.

Better still, fit a wireless programmable thermostat. They will offer to keep the flat at different temperatures at different times of the day / night.

Provided the area is heated, a stat can be fitted anywhere - normally in a hallway. Provided the system is correctly balanced, each other room will be heated proportionally.
