    Hello,

    I am trying to get quotes for a new gas central heating and hot water system. I want to replace boiler and hot water cylinder with a system boiler and unvented cylinder and would like a fully modulating boiler to work with a Honeywell programmable modulating room thermostat (Opentherm protocol).

    Is there an easy way to find out about boilers which will work with Opentherm protocol? Can anyone recommend any? And if so which are the best makes/models?

    Thanks

    Which Honeywell Opentherm controller are you talking about? There are some listed in their catalogue, but they don't seem to be in the shops yet.

    Remeha make very good boilers which work with Opentherm and they also do their own Opentherm controllers, Celcia 20 and iSense.

    Think about it O .P , in these time's of economic crisis , ask your self what can you do for your country ??? answer Buy made in Britain !!! safeguarding british job's , british manufacturing , U know it make's sense !!

    Johnson & Starley ( made in britain) do opentherm .

    :) do you really want a boiler made by some dutch fella , bombed out of his ead on dope ??? & wearing wooden shoe's ????? :)

    one thing you have to take in to consideration the boiler will have to determine, when to use the open therm for central heating. and not hot water.

    I doubt very much if J&S contribute as much to the British economy

    J&S are made about 4 miles from me in Northampton, I might have to go and see this Reno you keep banging on about. What does it actually offer over other makes?
