    Recommended OpenTherm 'stat for Intergas

    God the EPH is ugly... Might be worth ripping flooring up to get power to where it needs to be after all! Thanks for the replies all.

    Recommended OpenTherm 'stat for Intergas

    I've got an Intergas Xclusive 36, currently controlled by a Hive wireless stat and Intergas weather compensation. Considering upgrading to an OT compatible thermostat. It would need to be wireless both in communication and power (i.e. the room thermostat needs to run off batteries - it would be...

    Macdee dual flush AFV400100 weeping

    Hi All, Been trying to track down an ever increasing water bill, looking for leaks, dripping taps, etc. and think I've finally found the culprit. The Macdee dual flush valve in our bathroom appears to be letting water by after it closes. If i press either of the two buttons, the valve opens...

    Rads needed are much smaller than i thought

    To Muggles' point above, I did some research when replacing a number of radiators to correctly size them based on advice I'd read on here. I built a simple spreadsheet that allowed me to adjust the Delta T number by changing the flow from the boiler, such that I could see the difference between...

    External sodium floodlights - weird circuit issue

    These are brand new SON lamps in brand new fittings - I don't believe it is a lamp approaching end of life. As it has happened with this particular unit previously suggests there is something underlying. The cycle takes longer than 10-20min too. I have a spare lamp so can swap around to prove...

    Secure/sturdy/thermally efficient door recommendations?

    Thanks, again. And the actual door itself - I'm not imagining a difference between composite/solid doors and older types, am I? Our front door appears to be a solid/composite type with "pretend" panelling as part of the design; the knackered door appears to have panels fitted and held in with...

    External sodium floodlights - weird circuit issue

    When the whole circuit energises and the lights come on, all 7 lamps light up and then after a bit of time the last sodium on the run switches off for a little bit, then re-ignites. It does this randomly at undetermined intervals, whilst the other 6 lamps stay on. Sorry, PowerPoint isn't the...

    External sodium floodlights - weird circuit issue

    Some time ago I posted asking for help with our external lighting circuit (see thread here https://www.diynot.com/diy/threads/external-lights-floods-bulkhead-circuit-issues.531240/ ) Long story short, I've replaced the 3 sodium floodlights and all lamps, checked the circuit and fuses, and it is...

    Secure/sturdy/thermally efficient door recommendations?

    Thanks for that quick response - really helpful. Are there any differences in door construction from a security perspective? Are there better construction approaches and/or locking mechanisms I should look out for?

    Secure/sturdy/thermally efficient door recommendations?

    Hi all, We've noticed our kitchen door out to the garden (typical UPVC job) isn't closing/sealing as well as it should. I can see in one corner there is a gap between the frame seal and the door itself. The hinges have been adjusted quite a bit historically to counter this but there's no...

    Replacing TRVs but Unsure of Current Setup (10mm pipe but 15mm TRVs?)

    The Danfoss RAS-D range of TRV's are 15mm but come with compressible inserts for 10mm pipes. If you use 15mm pipe you use a straight olive, if you use 10mm you use the compressible insert instead. Dead easy, you only need to treat them as compression joints - I've fitted about 15 with no...

    Intergas Xclusive 36 - repeating status 1

    Not openthem, no - we already had Hive running and I didn't want to add additional expense to move to something else, especially as Hive runs more than just the heating in the house. We have a biggish semi but due to the layout and construction method (all solid walls, all but 1 room has 3...

    Intergas Xclusive 36 - repeating status 1

    Yeah, I did wonder about that... I'm not so convinced our installer had any interest in the subtleties of tuning the system after install. It's coming up to its first service - I may get Intergas out themselves to do it, unless anyone on here can be recommended who both knows Intergas well and...

    Intergas Xclusive 36 - repeating status 1

    Hi All, Since I discovered I can turn the display of the boiler on so it shows what it's up to all the time, I've noticed that now we are moving back into cooler days and it's being used on the odd occasion, it shows a status of 1 quite a lot. In the attached image you can see the set temp is...

    Reassurance before accepting a quote for a new boiler

    Speaking as a non-professional, non-qualified, slightly-above-average* DIYer (i.e. take the following with a pinch of salt!) I'd give you one piece of advice I wish I'd understood more before having our system replaced... Do a bit of proper research on how to calculate the correct sizing of...

    Grass over-seeding suggestions

    Hi all, We had our entire lawn re-turfed a couple of years ago to level it all and get rid of the widespread moss, weeds, old tree roots, etc. No idea if it was a good or bad job but we’ve been left with a lawn that is patchy at best. Most of it has a very, very fine grass that doesn’t grow and...

    Anyone? Had hoped some of the Intergas experts on here might be able to guide me.

    How to adjust heating line params- Intergas Xclusive

    Agreed - that's my thinking too. The Xclusive MI certainly seems to suggest they can be adjusted, just doesn't actually explain how or which parameters!
