Depending on your boiler installation and heating system, you can choose to fit both a central heating programmer and a separate water heating programmer or combine them into a single heating and hot water programmer. In most cases, the latter is far more convenient and also cheaper overall. Programmers also differ in their programming capabilities, for example, some allow only a single on/off cycle while others can switch power on and off multiple times per day. Some units repeat the same programming every 24 hours while others can digitally store separate settings for each day of the week, or a different setting for weekdays and weekends (such as the Danfoss 102E7 electronic heating and hot water programmer). Another feature to look for in a central heating programmer is an inbuilt battery back-up that prevents the program timing being disrupted by a temporary power outage, (for example, the Honeywell ST699 heating and hot water programmer has this feature). Some models also incorporate other handy features. A common one is a “boost” function that can be used to manually increase the heating period without adjusting the routine program settings. Another common addition is a “pause” feature that can be used to prevent your hot water or central heating programmer activating during a holiday period. Lastly, you should consider your wiring requirements. The majority have standard wiring compatible with almost all major boiler brands. Some modules are designed to attach to a standard GP wall-plate that avoids the need for re-wiring the units in and out. It also means that the consumer can easily upgrade their programmer if they later wish to do so. If you’re unsure which programmer best suits your requirements, our friendly Customer Service team are always happy to provide further information and advice.
