Hi , just reading through your notes
Hi did you have a new cylinder thermostat fitted?
No ... does that make such a difference ?
What make/number would you recommend
Yes a hot water cylinder stat regulates how hot your hot water gets. But if you haven't got one , then it is not your problem at present. Is the boiler thermostat turned up high?
Ok that's too low .in winter you need the water temp at 80 . but if you don't have a hotvwater cylinder stat then the highestvyou can put it is 65 degrees . above this you will form scale in the hot water tank
Thanks .... What I see on the cylinder is
Honeywell l641 A1039 square box attached to cylinder ...showing temperature ranges . with a turnable indictator
Do I assume this is the hotvwater cylinder stat that you mentioned ?
Yes that is the cylinder stat. Put the boiler stat at 80 , and set the cylinder stat at about 62 . one thing to note VI's tgatvit is the same stat used on all sizes of cylinder so if not hot enough or too hot adjust it until its right
Thank you .. will try this out ... will let you know
Worked .. Excellent service .. Thank you
