    Can I turn down the central heating temperature on combi boiler if I have TRVs?

Reading up on this it sounds like setting this as low as possible is the best option in terms of reducing gas usage - to try...

    ST620WBC Thermostat temp issue

    I have a Worchester boiler and just got the Salus ST60WBC thermostat which I have connected. However, it works in reverse order. Heating only comes on when the temperature set on the RF is lower than the room temperature (instead of the other way around). What can I do to sort this issue.
