Hi, is there such a thing? I currently have a wired programmer and no thermostat. The house will be vacant for a while and I want the heating to come on when the temperature drops. I know I could pay for a frost stat to be fitted, but could I do any of the following cheaper options?:

1. Replace the programmer with a combined unit using existing wiring?
2. Replace the Programmer with a froststat using exsisting wiring? (I could manage without a programmer when the house is vacant) as long as the heating kicks in when the temperature drops and I could drop the temperature on the froststat if I needed instant heating.
Advice appreciated.
