New House - No CH programmer or Controller - Is a Controller Needed?

Postby iandb » Fri Feb 14, 2014 2:22 pm

Hi All

We've recently moved into a new house and there is (not that I can find) a controller for the CH and HW.

In our old place we had a controller similar to the one below to set heating and water for what ever time we wanted etc.

This is the boiler in the new house, the old boiler was not a combi boiler ... c4e4ba.jpg

Is it simply that this boiler / heating set up does not necessarily require the controller?

Can one be fitted easily into this set up?

Many thanks

Simply Build It

I,m not sure exactly which boiler you have there, but there must be something controlling it. There could be an analogue timer already fitted. there is a model that fits underneath the boiler in a plastic holder. have a look, it's not obvious !
