Updating Backboiler Controls

Postby mantamark » Mon Dec 27, 2010 9:42 pm

Hi all.

We have recently moved into a house that has a Baxi back boiler fitted in 1998, and we would like a bit more control over the room temperature.

We currently have a vintage Honeywell T6060 analogue wall thermostat which is bang in the middle of the wall, we would like to move the stat to a corner of the room, there are no radiators or doors in that corner, so i assume it will be ok to change & move to there. Have traced the wiring & happy to chase it to where we want it.

We also have a Glow-worm RWB2 Programmer & would like to fit a programmer that has more than two timing settings, ideally one we can program for mon - fri then sat & sun seperatly with at least two programs per day.

I know these systems are poor efficiency, but we are a bit strapped for cash with just moving & there are more inportant things that need doing. We will get round to updating to a combi boiler eventually.

Any reccomendations would be appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Simply Build It

Do it, if it gives you more control then it's better for you and slightly more efficient.

The Danfoss TP9 or similar is a programmable thermostat, so you don't need the other room stat - if you have somewhere to site it baring in mind wiring and thermostat location.

The Danfoss FP975 is pretty similar but isn't a thermostat.

You'll need an electrician though, or RGI.
