If you've never installed or serviced one, i wouldn't recommend taking this on. They are a specialist piece of kit, especially when fitted with the weather comp sensor and room controller.

Op is better off getting Viessmann to do it directly.

Thanks for recommendation Steve, but as you know i don't get my hands mucky these days, and we haven't installed Viessmann for ages.

Awesome boilers though, especially the vitodens 200. Way too advanced for the uk market. People need educating first, and in 10 years time if we've caught up with the Germans, then there will prob be a market for it here.

Installed about 5 some years ago after completing there training course also serviced a few never actually been out to fix one yet, I think veismann were the first in the uk market to offer 5 year warrantee, I agree with you that they are over complicated for the uk market. Also fitted a few the atag 203c they are pretty much the same in terms of over complicatedness you even have to ring technical to set them up as per the instruction ! I also seem to recall veismann originally having a supply issue with parts i would think that is sorted by now though !!

50 here as well. That included a full service of the boiler and a full safety check and certificate on a rental property.
The cost for our own boiler was 45.

Take a look at the British Gas service options at
http://www.britishgas.co.uk/products...ing/cover.html

Homecare 100 from 9 a month includes an annual service and breakdown cover on the boiler too

We've been with them for years and always found them excellent

Hi all, wonder if you can help me. I've just moved into a new house. My last place had a combi boiler, so when I turned on the shower the boiler would fire up, regardless of whether the heating was on. Simple.

In this new place, to get a decent hot shower I have to have the heating turned on for about 10 mins. At the moment I'm just using the thermostat to heat the water (as heating is usually on anyway), but if I only wanted to heat the water, what would be the most cost efficient way to do this?

Excuse my ignorance, I have only ever had combi boilers!

Hi not sure without looking but have you got zone valves or 1 3 port
valve.
Maybe a zone valve fault but like i said would need to
see the system in action.
After the heating has been on for just 10mins does the shower run
fine?
Its defo a mixer shower is it?
Cheers jon at JB Heating.

Hi, just had a new boiler fitted 24kw, to replace old one (10.5kw).
The CH radiator water temp is set to an 'e' on the setting dial which is apparently the most economical temp. However the water for the rads is a bit hot and seems to give a lot of 'overshoot' in room temp. (Wall stat switches off but there is still the hot water in rads chucking heat out).

It appears from reading I could do with a wall stat with 'heat Anticipator'.
Which do you recommend please? My old one is wired & I could use these wires & site.

This one from Honeywell will do the job. You can use the wires but needs to be 3 wire to feed the heat anticipator. Nearly all are a fairly straightforward swop over,

I called in plumbworld yesterday, they didn't know what i was on about. Think I saw the one you suggest, but couldn't see heat anticipator mentioned. See it has one from your link.

My ancient Honeywell one has 3 wires all live when fused spur is switched on.

THANKS!

its the one you need. you have live, switched live, and neutral. Its just a straight swop over (isolated at the mains of course). all modern thermostats have heat anticipator built in.

or you could install the Honeywell DT90E. a little more expensive as its digital but has the anticipator built in.

2 wire install so you would isolate the live and run the common / switched live and neutral from it.
