We actually install more wireless controls now than hard wired ones. The picture is of a seven day Honeywell programmable room thermostat which we fit a lot of when we install combination boilers. As these type of controls eliminating the need to run and conceal cables there is no disturbance to decorations. Getting them in the optimum position for sensing room temperature is easier too without wires to worry about.
On all replacement boiler installations it is a building regulations requirement that controls are upgraded to current standards. As most old installations have inadequate controls we find ourselves doing a lot of this work. Even if you are not replacing your boiler it still makes good sense to have your heating system properly controlled to save money on your energy bill. We rewired a heating system this week in a house on a fairly new estate. It had never been wired up correctly in the first place and the frost thermostat by the boiler in the garage had never even been connected! So much for building inspectors! It was supposed to be a 'Y-plan' system but was a mish mash of controls by different manufacturers. We changed everything to Honeywell for wiring clarity and it's all working perfectly and most importantly, efficiently now. We are always happy to discuss and advise on any heating control issues you may have. With wireless technology it's less disruptive than you may think to get your system under proper control.
