How do I meet the Building Regulations minimum standard for heating control?

Make sure that each part of the heating system is controlled by time and temperature. For systems with stored Hot Water make sure you have a programmer fitted and a room thermostat and cylinder thermostat. These will operate motorised zone valves to control the heat from the boiler and switch it off when no further heat is required. For Combi-boiler systems make sure you have a time and temperature control for the Heating. The Hot Water is controlled when you turn on a tap.If you have no room thermostat fitted it is easy to install one now, without chasing cables into walls. A wireless room thermostat can be sited for optimum performance without requiring any electrical connection. A receiver box needs to be connected to the other controls, this is best done by a heating professional.
