we have a combi boiler with a timer that is always on. we then use a wireless thermostat around the house to control when the boiler fires up. if we don't want the heating on, we simply drop the temperature on the thermostat to a point lower than the current room temperature, which ensures the boiler doesn't fire up. my question is probably a simple one - is there any cost saving benefit of setting the timer on the boiler to only be "on" during the hours we want heat? or is it not doing anything anyway if the room thermostat isn't telling it to fire up?
