Do you think its worth using an timer with an immersion? I am planning on
getting this setup;
Hopefully this will replace my existing manual divertor and basic timer
without independant water and heating? Do you think it will do the job?
Also where is the best place to put a thermostat in a house?
Is it worth using a timer with an immersion heater? Yes. electricity is
very expensive and you don't want to use it unnecessarily.
I have a "one-shot" button on the immersion heater timer. In one-shot
mode, it will heat until the tank is hot and then stop until the next
timer event. So I can have a bath in the evening without leaving the
tank full of re-heated hot water, all night. I have it set to heat
another tankfull in the early morning, which does for a shower when I
get up and the hot water I need during the day.
Will that kit do the job? It certainly wouldn't with a hopper-fed coal
boiler. But i can only guess what system you have.
The best place for thermostats, IMHO, is on every radiator. But, YMMV.
hallways seem the traditional place...
It should allow seperate controls of the HW and CH as long as you can do the
plumbing and electrics. It is the equivalent of the Y plan shown here
But is is not is a timer for an immersion. Look on screwfix or TLC for
Use a TRV on all the rads, except the rad in the room with the wall stat.
This room should have no secondary heating (ie not in a lounge with a
gas/electric fire or in a kitchen with it's cooker)
The usual place is the hallway
