    Hi want to connect new hive into heating replacing a horstmann channel plus h37xl.
    I have attached a pic. My current setup on right and hive diagram on left. The the HW on is wired into the live. Is this ok on the hive? It looks like to like for me

    Good evening,

    I’m struggling to see why the hw on is just linked to Live? How do you currently heat the hot water?

    Yeah this was wired in before I was in the flat. HW is heated when heating is on. It heats radiators and water. If we need water quick we have immersion heating but try not to use that much

    Personally I’d say you don’t need it, I don’t understand the heating off terminal either, it’s what normally turns the heating on? Do you have any other programmers or anything?

    Found out it was just set up as a normal “switch”. Anyway I got a mate in from trades to be safe and all sorted. Thanks for the info.
