    I have a WB 8000
    I’ve installed and a Bosch easy control thermostat.

    a few questions

    1) weather dependant control is Off by default. I was told to turn it off by WB as I don’t have a temperature sensor. So with it off will it use googled or weather?

    2)what should I set the boiler target flow temp as? Does it matter given the target flow temp should be controlled by the easy control thermostat? I did notice when I set the target flow temp to 30, the heating didn’t work. Is it just the maximum?

    Sorry another question

    3)how does the eco hot water mode work. I think it makes hot water come on quicker if off.. if I turn this off does it turn off the modulation of boiler?

    No sensor on these, WC on will use local temperature provided by internet

    You'll need to turn your set point up higher then the control will modulate it down to what it needs.

    Eco off - the boiler will check itself every 20 mins to keep itself warm ready to give you hot water. Other wise it'll have to warm up from cold to provide hot water. It can conflict with the load compensation on the control though, if the control is happily plodding away at 40 degrees that's not much good for your pre heat in hot water.

    Ok so does this mean I set the weather dependant on and then it will use google? The other day when I did set it on the tempreture it said stated was 4 degrees lower then what it actually was outside. I assumed it was because the sensor was not plugged in to outside? Maybe if it was a one off reading given you confirmed the fact wb8000 don’t have a weather sensor. WB told me to turn it off and then it will use google weather. Which is wrong then.
