    hi, i was advised to put an 832 boiler in my bungalow, 18 months ago. i have fitted the vsmart controller but the rads are on or off never warm as i understood it would work. i have been reading lots of posts - could my boiler be too powerful? i have 8 radiators, if possible can i reduce the power output?

    Your boiler has a maximum of 24 kw to the heating and automatically modulates to the heating load, the 32kw is needed for hot water generation, if your rads are running hot you should speak to the installer about adjusting the heat curve( if it’s possible with the vsmart)

    vsmart is meant to do the heating curve automatically. but can be done manually
