Honeywell T6360 (B1028) is a simple dial mechancial (wired) thermostat (analogue). If replacing an old, worn out T6360, the process is as easy as taking the old one off the wall, turning the power off, unwiring it, and then fitting / wiring the new model in the exact same manner at which the old one was installed. So its basically a direct swap / replacement. This model can also work as a direct replacement for the T6360B1002 The T6360 can be used with many programmers, such as the Honeywell ST7100,…

Horstmann Electronic 7 Controller (With Boost)

The Horstmann Electronic 7 is a direct replacement for the older mechanical model made for Economy 7, the Horstmann Economy 7 Quartz (newer example here).

Horstmann Economy 7 Quartz Immersion Timer

Like the Timeguard TRTD7N, the Horstmann Economy 7 Quartz has been made specifically for use within the Economy 7 time range. That is, of course, overnight when the electricity is running at a cheaper rate / tariff. Being analogue and operated by just two dials, many people who prefer an extremely easy to use timer will welcome its simple mechanical design. Pictured: The Horstmann Economy 7 Quartz However, while it does offer a simple-to-use interface, when it comes to versatility, it’s quite lacking when compared to the Timeguard TRTD7N. The…

Horstmann H37XL 3 Channel Programmer

This Horstmann H37XL “Channelplus” 7 day programmer has 3 channels. This means its capable of operating / controlling three individual zones in a dwelling.

Drayton LP722 7 Day Programmer

The LP722 Mark 4 (Wired) from Drayton is a great dual channel 7 day programmer, with mostly excellent reviews across the board. It’s very similar to another model made by Drayton, the LP522 (MK4). In fact, they are almost indentical. The only real difference being that with the LP722 the user has the freedom to set different settings – on / off times every day of the week and weekend (the full seven days can be different). The LP522 is slightly more limited, as in its a 5/2 programmer and…

Drayton Digistat 2 Replacement

Honeywell T4R Wireless Thermostat

The Honeywell T4H (110A1021) and T4R (Y4H910RF4003) both offer a great heating solution for residential properties that have a combi boiler (recommended but not essential). Reviews are widely positive across the board. Of course, while being similar in many respects, even in appearance, they are two entirely different models, and as a result they have some slightly different features. There is some confusion with this, as some people are not sure about the whole T4H / T4R model codes and have ended up buying the T4H (110A1021) thinking it was…
