Good value

"Bought this to replace an old Danfoss timer for my central heating and hot water. Not exactly plug and play, but then again didn't expect it to be. Even so relatively easy to fit even for a novice and all appears to be working well so far. Give more flexibility than my old unit and is a lot more user friendly.
Can't really comment on the reliability yet as its only been fitted a couple of days and we don't need to run the central heating at all or the water much, but on test runs all seems to be ok. Hopefully it will last as long as the previous unit, but as and when it ever does need replacement, then the next time it should just be a matter of unplugging this one then plugging a replacement in its place.

"Bought this to replace a 20 year old Horstmann H525, Although the back plate has now changed it was a doddle to fit, new back plate fitted on the old holes so no drilling, wiring just as simple as the old on and no links to install. As for reliability, well I put 5 stars but only been on a few days. Easy to program too."

I didn't get a 'Series 2' C27
03-Mar-2014
By
, Hertfordshire
"This is a good quality programmer and good value compared to other brands. However, I did not receive the 'Series 2' version shown on the website when I bought it from my local Screwfix. I only found this out after I had installed it when I noticed it doesn't have a back light display nor auto adjustment for GMT/BST. If you want these features ensure you get the up to date 'Series 2' version."

Great Programmer

"Bought this together with a Centaur 7 programmable room stat. Now have total control over heating and hot water. Use this programmer to time the hot water and leave the CH on 24 hours. Then use the Centaur 7 to control the heating. Fantastic combination.
Had to get an electrician to conect both but that only took an hour.

Hortsmann CentaurPlus C27 Prog

By
, chelmsford
"Arrived in good time and was well packed.
It fits to a standard back plate, so there were no issues with replacing a broken controller.
Everything works fine and programming instructions are not to challenging.
The only minor gripe is that there is a Boost facility for the hot water ,but not for the central heating, which you need to advance when you want the heating to come on.( i have a gravity fed system) I can't yet comment on reliability as it's only been on for a couple of weeks.
Overall seems to be a good piece of kit at a very reasonable price. I'm pleased with my purchase.
