Hi, Does anyone have any experience with this?
I wanted to fit it to my combi boiler,
I didn't see any info on it from the makers website
and screwfix don't say the model?
I fitted on in my daughter's house, It is easy to set and has good
sensitivity. However, on one occasion it kept the heating on continuously.
I thought I had a big problem but it went away when I fitted new batteries.
They were almost flat - but not quite bad enough to cause the indicator to
give a warning.
Must admit I was surprised it could fault to "on".

Not enough power left to drive the relay. Battery powered thermostats use
latching relays, as standard relays require a lot of power to stay
energised, which would quickly run the batteries down.
What sort of times can you set on this?
I am looking for a stat where I can set one temperature in the day and one
Also, another in the weekend day, and one more weekend night
The ability to change the day and night to/from times would also be nice!
Does anyone know if this one will do this?
Manufactured as Tower and/or branded as Horstmann.
The ealier ones seemed to have the Tower brand.
Sticks out from the wall quite a bit, if you are putting it in a
hall/landing/corridor then you could alternatively try this mains powered
flush(ish) mounting one -
but at twice the price.
No experience of that one but would thoroughly recommend the Drayton
range. We had one for the last couple of years (a wireless model on a
combi) and it's a priority to fit one to the CH in the new house.
Default settings were almost perfect and when on holiday you just set
it to 'night' mode which stops the house dropping below either 8 or
16C (IIRC - depends on an dip switch inside).
More expensive than screwfix but not a lot more and better looking
Interesting - i'd not heard of them before. They do a remote control
as a £16 extra which could be really useful if it was radio (stat in
hallway, remote in lounge) but unfortunately is IR so line of sight
only. Whilst not having to get up and walk upstairs to the stat might
be useful line of sight control seems pointless.
