    Hi all,

    Can someone please tell me what the opposite of a c-plan is called?

    My system only has a 2 port motorised valve on the CH side, there is nothing on the HW side. The zone valve has packed in so I am thinking about converting to a S or Y plan.

    C+? I thought just c plan.

    S plan + is more than two zones innit? Why would op go for more than 2, unless they live in a big house....

    Fookin no plan.
    A "C plan" has a valve and stat on cylinder (Gravity) and a roomstat for controlling pump on the heating.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have a fully pumped system with a timer, but no thermostat. It is a small house so a s-plan would be sufficient.

    Apart from the independent control over the HW and a thermostat, is there any real advantage or economy saving that makes the update to a s-plan worthwhile?

    Honestly honestly :oops: as I typed last night I had a picture in my head of a valve on the flow to a cylinder, that's where they'd use a cyltrol valve years ago?
