"Very easy to install, looks good and does exactly what it says! Has the benefit of an additional back panel incase more space is required for wires."

Warm again

"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.

Cheap and cheerful
10 Jun 2014
By
, Luton
"Well, it is basic device so you cannot expect miracles. Easy to install and does the job. I have used it for gravity fed heating system but it is designed to work with Combi Boiler, and manual is designed to replace thermostats connected to combi boiler.
If you know what you are doing, you can use it with any system it is for you, but if you are basic DIYer and looking to replace like-for-like for gravity fed system, then find some other option"

"Called Drayton to complain that the thermostat was not acurate (it read 15 when room was 20). They said it was one of their simplier thermostats and should not be at fault. \they did offer to replace it but in the meantime what shall we do - freeze? What a con!!!!!!!!"

Buyer beware

"I have now had two of these, first one went wrong after two months the second has gone wrong just as the heating was turned on for winter, lasted 8 months but it was turned off for a few months.
It is now being replaced with something else.
If you are reading this then do not bother, buy another with a bit more cash."
