We had a Vaillant eco tec plus boiler fitted in May 2013 together

Resolved Question:

We had a Vaillant eco tec plus boiler fitted in May 2013 together with a VRT350f controller. We are now on our 4th controller due to various faults. Our latest controller is set at a desired temperature of 22 degrees. At a room temperature of 23 degrees + the CH is still on.
Is there a substitute for this controller please as we have had enough ?

Hi , there is no new replacement for this model yet.
That doesn't stop you from having another wireless controller wired into your system . you would just need a heating engineer with controls experience . that way you could choose any number of controller/ programmers , i would recommend Honeywell which are reliable and simple to use.

Thank you for the email. I am not heating savvy - please explain " another wireless controller wired into your system " and please give the Honeywell types that would suit and an idea of the cost ( excluding labour of course ).
