    Default Where do you buy Evohome kit?

    I got my base kit from EvoHomeShop due to a good deal, but apart from that I always seem to find JTPlumbing is cheaper. e.g. EHS are doing a special 16xHR92 deal but the per-unit price is slightly more than when just buying a 4-pack from JT.

    Where do people buy their kit from? Does anywhere offer further discounts if you ask nicely or at least offer flexibility e.g. if I need 5 HR92s price them on the 4-pack price?

    The good thing about Evohome Shop is that the owner is a regular contributor here, offering fantastic support. You won’t get that from a normal plumbing supplier.

    Sometimes it's about more than just price....

    So I can't get support here if I buy the exact same part from someone else? On that topic, I left a short question on a product on JT's website and got a friendly, helpful, thorough phone call shortly after advising me of various options.

    Will EHS let me build my own bundle and give a bespoke price, or is it just "buy off the shelf"? Since I bought from them before it'd be easier but it's not a big deal.

    Why should you get a "bespoke price"?

    Of course you can. I was just making the point that Richard is so much more than a typical box shifter.

    Probably best to ask Richard himself with a list of what you want and he would give you a price.

    Don't really know what you mean by flexibility. Just sounds like you want something for free lol

    If you don't need any service at all. I got my HR92s from amazon in Germany. Cheapest I could find a week ago, 4xHR92s @ 210 euro incl shipping.

    Bought all mine from EvohomeShop, was a little bit cheaper elsewhere, but not that much in it and they were helpful on the phone when I was doing the research and I used their website for info ie deciding which donor TRVs to buy for my new central heating system. Also like to think that I could phone them up at any time and get help with any issues when I CBA reading the manual or doing my own diagnostics. I had some Comms problems a few weeks after purchase and they sorted it out in a few mins without me having to faff about interpreting the instruction book. At the end of the day, No1 priority is you just want your central heating to work NOW, all the other flowery stuff is just for shizzles, they did that for me in a few mins over the phone.
