Default Another heating problem question!

Got mine after the same tip - works a treat (although I'm not supposed to
use it yet 'cos it's a Christmas present)!


That's fine. You only need to balance the DHW coil if it is to be on
simultaneosly with the CH, but I think a better system uses only one
system at a time, then each gets the full boiler output.


Not easy to achieve with most programmers which use the same on/off periods
for CH and HW. The only way I can think of to do it is to use the main
programmer for HW, setting CH to constant and actually controlling the CH at
different times with a programmable room stat. Is this the accepted way?
