Customer Question

I live in France and I have a Vaillant ecoCompact LPG gas boiler VSC 196-C 150 which has a 100 litre hot water storage tank this is approximately 6 years old .There is no programmer or room thermostat fitted only TVR rad valves . The recommended wireless programmer is VRT 240F which I understand are no longer available .Could you recommend a replacement for the VRT 240F or another compatable programmer .

There are many different room thermostats you can use with this boiler. You just need to wire it into the room stat circuit on the boiler. a programmable room thermostat will work also which means there is no need for a programmer.
Let me know if you like the look of a couple and I will tell you if they are compatible.

I would like a wireless programmable room thermostat and would this also control the hot water?.

I have been looking at Delta Dore Tybox 137 and also a Honeywell ,not sure which model . If these are not compatible could you suggest one that will be suitable.

You would need to fit a cylinder thermostat also to do this.
Most transmitters and receiver kits will work with this boiler also.

Honeywell and Danfoss are good makes
