Yes fit away but don't put one where there is a room stat(that's IF they fitted one)
Put inhibitor in after fitting too.

WTF Indeed.

Table 2 on Page 15 of the Domestic Heating Compliance guide is quite clear that they SHOULD have been fitted. Has the Inspector seen it? If he has he should have spotted it and there would be no need to complain.

Coupled with the other thread on a similar subject I'm starting to wonder if Warm Front are now specifying that their installers should provide their own horse! LoL.
