This query might be related to the 'Electrics' forum, so I've posted the topic there too.
A few weeks ago when I turned on my hot water, the CH came on also. When I turned the hot water off, the CH remained on. A heating engineer called out, who said the electrics in the thermostat were old, in a poor state of repair and needed replacing. He advised that an electrician would need to do the work. However, when the electrician called out he said that it's a heating engineer's job. I'm stuck. I would have thought that replacing wires in a thermostat would be an electrician's responsibility. Any advice would be much appreciated.
If the heating is working, the thermostat and wiring will probably be ok. As the thermostat calls for heat which will send a signal to the actuator to open for CH. Which it is doing.
I don't know many electricians that will work on central heating controls. They tend to work up to the fused spur - from the fused spur they tend to say it is a Heating Engineer's job. I have had many jobs passed to me where electricians couldn't or wouldn't do electrical work - not sure why, incapable or lazy ??
