"An easy to fit, easy to understand, direct replacement for an existing dial room thermostat. Please bear in mind that it doesn't come with fixing screws and it needs extra long ones to reach through the housing, backplate and into the electrical box."
"Nice product as direct replacement for old thermostat. Easy to fit and works well looks nice and modern. No problems at all and would recommend. Very good price and requires no batteries unlike the digital ones."
"RTS8 Room Thermostat. Does what is says on the box. Straight forward swap for existing RS1 types installed by BG. This Drayton model feature more run of the mill design in that it operates via bi-metallic strip function as aginst the latter resistor based model which though more modern by design, just does not peform with confidence. RTS8 model is easy to fit with comprehensive guide covering schematics for 3 typical installtion scenarios as well as compatability listing against current boiler variants."
"Central heating didn't work. The boiler was working so the most obvious problem related to the room thermostat. This is a very basic model having basic features. The old thermostat was the same make with similar settings. Fitting the replacement was so simple. We now have a nice warm house."
