Q: Hi...hav oil central heating system and already hav old drayton programme control but needs changing...its my mums and shes old and dont want 1 thas to complicated i need 1 in a fee weeks also for my renovated house! Which control do i need the LP711 or yhe other 1? Just wana b a able set timer to come on am & pm but like the boost or advance button it puts heating on for 1 hour is that correct? Can i do the boost or advance for heating also seperate from the heating? All info helpful
A: If you have a combi boiler, with the hot water on demand straight from the boiler, then you need the LP711.
If you have a heat-only boiler, with a hot water cylinder, then you need the LP722. The heating is separate from the hot water.
Yes, the boost puts it on for an hour.
Q: Can you use this as a timer for an immersion heater? Wondered if it had a maximum amp rating?
A: No, it is not suitable. It is rated 3(1)amps only.
Q: I have an LP 711 timer, how does / do you operate the 1 hour boost / override for the central heating. it does not make this clear in the instructions
A: If yours is the latest model with the boost function then you just press and hold the boost/advance button in. If it is the older model, then you will need to upgrade.
Q: is the LP711 compatible to replace British Gas control EMT2 & is it easy to replace or should I call an Electrician ?
A: Yes, it is a simple plug-on replacement. A 5-minute job.
Q: I have 3 separate LS711 controllers to operated two heating zones and one for domestic hot water. They are late 1988 vintage so have done well - and cease to work. What is the current replacement for this model and do I need to change any wiring.
A: You will need the LP711:
You will have to make a link on the old backplate, but this is a simple job.
