Simply Build It

As far as I know, all heating systems can have a room stat installed. Just how this can be connected depends on how your system is designed and wired.

You say you have no separate control for heating and water? Well, I find this difficult to understand. Assuming you need hot water every day, you are suggesting the radiators would be hot 365 days a year? I am not sure that is right.

I think you should find somebody who can show you how the timer works because I suppose, it could be faulty.
