I would like a modern, easily wired, reliable but not too expensive, digital replacement for my

CH thermostat and need suggestions.

Literally loads on the market, not one size fits all, terminate any unused wires safely or disconnect at the other end.

When selecting; bear in mind that there are 'thermostats' and 'programmable thermostats'.

Programmable thermostats allow you to select different temperatures at different times of the day. Incorporating time and temperature control in the same unit avoids the need for a separate programmer / timeswitch.

Basic Thermostats provide temperature control only [as per the one have now, and the example posted by denso13] and do require an additional programmer / timeswitch.

You can still choose a programmable thermostat, but if you do, the existing programmer should be set so that the heating is permanently on 24/7 and the programmable thermostat will then take over full control of the heating.

I should have said that we had the unit shown alongside fitted 6 months ago. 58600516-882D-4202-9CB0-1D6238E9D6BF.jpeg

At the moment, the Drayton LP722 provides the time control, so if you replace your existing room thermostat with another basic room thermostat then it will continue as is.

If you fitted a programmable thermostat instead, the heating should then be set to be permanently 'on' at the LP722 and the new programmable thermostat would control both the time and temperature of functions relating to the central heating. The hot water would continue to be controlled by the LP722 as now.
