Aredwood: Glad everything is working well. This is reminding me about the extra things I need to do on my system. Main ones being installing radiators in the lounge and bathrooms. As the temp in my room currently is 24deg while the lounge is 16deg. Also need to add active water temp management to my system. So the oil feed rate into the boiler will be varied based on how much heat is needed. And then I will be able to add thermostatic radiator valves to the radiators. So this problem won't happen again

That wall thermostat is not actually connected to anything, It is there solely to monitor the temp. It's not set to the correct time either.


Wow a Chronogyr. Is it Landis and Gyr branded?

Just thought I should mention an important safety point in your system. The header tank should be metal. If the system overheats a plastic one will fail and dump the contents of near boiling water through the ceiling. This has caused the death of a child sleeping in a bed below the header tank in the UK.

Ours is out over an Eve, nothing but outside underneath it.
Made of rotational moulded plastic which was designed for hot water storage, made by my parents who owned a rotational moulding business. 

Thanks

Nice. That's going to be 15-20 years old. Probably best not to use it though. The relays on the Rev21 were a bit notorious for latching.

Good to know. Was eventually going to use it to control temp in the end bedroom via a motorised ballvalve on the feed to the radiator to that room. So the worst case of that relay failing is either the room gets a bit hot, or no heating in just that room. That room is quite small so therefore has a platform installed near the ceiling with a mattress on it. (means room can have a double bed and still have reasonable floor space). It also means it gets quite hot being near ceiling height. So the thermostat will be perfect for that.
