Thermostat settings on my back boiler

Postby ukrob65 » Thu Feb 21, 2008 11:11 am

I have just moved into a cottage which has solid fuel heating. It has a Dunsley Superclean 400mm back boiler and a Dunsley Enterprise 16" fire box. There is a pump fitted to the system and a thermostat on what appears to be a return pipe from the hot water cylinder to the back boiler. I have the operating instructions for the fire and back boiler but there is no mention of any guidelines to set the thermostat temperature. It is a Honeywell thermostat and has a marked range range of 10 to 40 degrees. Can anyone help me with what this thermostat should be set at and would it ever need to be changed at all? When I moved in it was set at around 25 degrees. Many thanks in anticipation
