Keeping this in view, do I need a room thermostat with a combi boiler?
By regs, it should have had a Room Thermostat Fitted to act as a boiler interlock. If the system is left to rely on the boiler stat then it will cycle when the system gets to temp which means it will keep going on and off. This isnt as efficient as having a Room Thermostat. The answer is yes.
Also, how does a boiler programmer work? The programmer means that the boiler will only fire up as per the times set, however if the house reaches a certain temperature the thermostat will instruct the boiler to turn off. Working together, thermostats and programmers and TRVs compliment each other to help you tailor your heating demands.
Also question is, what power supply does a combi boiler need?
All combination boilers require a power supply. This is usually provided by a 3A switched fused spur adjacent to the boiler. A 3 core flex connects to the boiler terminals, which will be the standard L N and E.
Can I use a hive dual channel receiver on a combi boiler?
The single channel version of the Hive is for combi boilers and provides control of the heating only. The dual channel version of the Hive is for heating systems with control of the heating and separate stored hot water.
