    My central heating system doesn't have a room thermostat at present. I'd like to add one as it will be more efficient than just having the boiler blasting for the three hours or so that the heating is on. Are these easy to fit onto an existing system, and what work would need to be done? I'm hoping to get away with minimal damage to my walls.

    Fit an RF wireless thermostat. No wiring to the actual thermostat required 'cos its got batteries.

    Er, actually, many thermostats have batteries but aren't wireless. ;)
