Thermostat Question.

I have a Worcester 24i RSF Combi Boiler operated using a Horstmann 425 Coronet. This timer control panel allows me 2 on/off per day, all day, 24hrs or off solutions. But no weekend setting

At the moment I have it on twice a day, but what i'd really like is a timer/control panel that allows twice per day (or more) but at weekends a different set of times (5/2 day settings)

I'd also like the heating to kick in at any time if the temperature of the house falls below a set temp...say 14c. During the day...its bloody cold.

I've read its better to heat the house constantly at a lower temperature during really cold weather than to have it going too cold and then heating from there.

Is it as easy as just changing the control panel???? I've seen some that suit my needs in screwfix for about £40

Not cheaper, but more comfortable.

You can change the timer, but I'd leave it there, or link it out, and put a programmable thermostat in place of the room thermostat - assuming you have one. If not, get one, maybe RF, which needs no wires between.

whats the difference between the two? Basically, I want a device that is programmable for set time duing the week and then weekend but will also detect if the house temp drops below a certain level (say 14c) it will automatically turn itself on to heat the house. Kind of like an emergency heating backup

How can I find out if the boiler listed above is a gravity fed or pumped system?

All i want is a more user friendly, more convenient way of heating the house.

I would like to do away with the old style dial programmer and have a single unit fitted in the hallway which allows for heating and hot water to be operated from....

Would this be suitable. Do I need to spend this much on it? :confused:
