    If you're anywhere near West Sussex you're welcome to borrow mine for a day or two.

    Wind (especially when combined with rain) will exacerbate any heat losses even without draughts.

    Wet your hand and then blow on it. Now imagine what that would be like for a large single-skinned...

    A FLIR is brilliant at helping you to find the cold spots, but it doesn't really help with quantifying the losses.

    Just updated to the latest dev build and I can see the new 'devices'. I confirm that the values match what I see through the Intergas InComfort interface (which I also feed to Domoticz).

    Thanks...

    Nope. Without OpenTherm it'll be a BDR91 cycling your boiler on and off. There's no way for it to know that the heating loop needs, say, 30 degrees to keep your house warm. So nothing that's going to...

    Why not go Intergas?

    Your landlord will love it because they tend not to go wrong, so fewer callouts.
    Your heating engineer might hate it for the very same reason though!

    Plays well with...

    Looks like there's two conversations mingled here!

    On the OTGW front, I used it (the Russian Orange Pi version) with an Intergas boiler and saw no difference in boiler temps with or without the...

    Do you have hot water? If so change the battery in the temp sensor.

    In the past we’ve seen a couple of instances of a dying HW sensor causing a fault like this.

    It may not be, but for the...

    I kind-of disagree with that one. The main install manual is pretty damned good, I reckon, with a good mix of the simple and advanced stuff.

    It'll never cover everything, and it would be a mistake...

    Thanks for the update Rameses.

    You do need a new term for Zone Scaling, whatever it is!

    Scaling has nasty connotations when it comes to water based heating!

    There's lots of new, shiny, pretty things on the market, but I've not heard of any that are as good or as reliable as Evohome.

    All depends what you need, I guess. But for me comfort and...

    Much of the Evohome 'logic' is contained in the TRVs.

    I suspect that artificially messing with the boiler flow temperature will cause havoc with that learned data.

    I've never had cause to think...

    Agree with all of that, but I would point out that Evohome is no longer Honeywell - it's now Resideo. And I think *some* of the lack of attention to the product lineup has been caused by the focus on...

    In the app select the zone, then click the temperature. Then the black clock at the bottom. Then click cancel.

    You don't need to set the default temp.

    But that red cancel isn't intuitive. It...

    Heat pumps and underfloor heating (especially when heating a slab) are a bit like night storage heaters, but perhaps even more laggy. You need to predict when cold or hot days are going to happen and...

    Perhaps the dead HR92 died when the room was last heating up, and just after sending a 100% heat demand?

    It's a replacement for the exiting Yahoo! group, so one in one-out.

    I don't think it'll affect here.

    Might be worth using a fan heater - on the cold setting - just to redistribute the air around the room and mix things up a bit. Only needs to be a small one, and you could hide it away. Put it on a...

    I find that (even good quality) tape tends to go yellow and leave a hard dry coating when used close to a heat source.

    Horses for courses. I guess it depends on just how destructive the particular...

    Yeah, but Earth is there for safety. I wasn’t convinced that “there’s no alternative” was a good reason to use it for power.

    I also suspect the switches would be destroyed next time an electrical...

    I was never happy about how Den lights witches were wired. They used Earth as Neutral.

    Other manufacturers *could* do that, but they don't. For good reason.
