    Worcester Greenstar 30i Combi ErP and Worcester Comfort I RF Stat 600 001
    want to change this to the hive.
    I live in Newport
    South Wales
    Any ideas on price to have this done? I have the Hive (2 channel)
    or
    can someone let me know what has to be done - electrical tech, so work on electrical machinery nearly every day.

    Thanks

    you can use the Dual channel Hive on a combi, but not Ideal, you should use the single channel Hive, if your boiler has been wired using the low voltage connections and you use the hive dual channel you will cause expensive damage to the boiler

    the dual I take it is for a separate hot water tank - correct?

    the dual Hive is for a seperate HW system and uses 230V switching, the single channel is for combi boilers and uses switch free wiring, getting them wrong can be expensive

    You can't wire it yourself, you need a gas engineer as you're removing the boiler casing
