About this deal

This goes back to my previous point of checking those reviews, as well as finding forums discussing the brand and tool in question so that you get genuine, unfiltered feedback.

I'm about to fit a Hive wireless thermostat to my central heating system and have a couple of questions.Of all 28 products there were a total of 11 that were more expensive and 16 that were cheaper than Horstmann Centaurstat 7 Room Thermostat. I'm thinking that the simplest 'fix' for this is to replace the room stat cable with a short loop at the wiring centre end and identify it appropriately in case I should ever need to reconnect the wired room stat for some reason. If you are unsure or need any advice on your DIY or trade job, they are more than happy to answer your questions.

BTW, turning off the mains to the central heating system and working safely ensuring nothing is live before disconnecting etc is a given here). If the temperature deviates less than 4°C from the set temperature, the system will not heat or cool.Also, many of them are made with flimsy materials that could fall apart easily with the vibrations of usage. When/if we are happy with the Hive system I will properly isolate the old room stat wiring at both ends so that it is properly unused but can be reinstated without having to run new cabling (the cable run is a nightmare between the wiring centre and the stat location). Once you go to use it on the heavier stuff, however, you will run into an array of issues that will frustrate you. Install Hive with the old room stat temporarily bypassed rather than removed (just in case it doesn't work out for us).

When working at heights, never leave tools lying out in the areas where they could present a hazard to the people below.This is why it is in the company’s best interest to provide only quality products to ensure that no negative feedback is received. Screwfix prides themselves of impeccable service and only sells trustworthy brands, so you can rest assured when dealing with them. I believe, from looking at the installation docs for the old/existing programmer and stat, that the room stat is wired back to a central wiring point where it effectively sits between the programmer and either the pump or the three way valve. First of all, many well-known brand names tend to boast about their flagship tools in television, trade magazines and online ads.
