    Hi all
    Just wanted to run this past you lot first before I sign up to anything
    I am looking to have a new combi boiler fitted shortly. Its basically a like for like installation replacement in the same location. I already have a DT90E thermostat control wired in downstairs.
    As part of the quote I see that I 'need' to have a 'Boiler Plus' recognised/ conforming control fitted by the elecrician at around £150 before the installer can sign off the job with the local council?


    I know regualtions have changed considerably in the last few years but we are on a very tight budget .Can anyone please confirm if this is truly the case and I cannot use my existing controls?

    Best way to comply would be to have an Intergas Rapid boiler with a Honeywell T4M controller.

    Or even cheaper. Use the existing controller and have a weather sensor put on the wall and it can be tuned to your needs.

    As it's a Combi you will need to comply, which boiler have you been quoted for?

    You do need a conforming control, but as Dan has suggested there are ways of reducing the cost without losing out on quality
