That setting on the boiler is the water temp. I've literally never touched that dial since the boiler was installed. The indoor thermostat measures indoor air temp. It will turn on the boiler until the room reaches the preset temp and then turn off the boiler or just that zone.

QUOTE=AdamB;109213729]As far as I know, every home built pre 2006 is eligible for a home heating control grant up to €700 though SEAI. When I asked EI on the phone if having a Climote control installed by them would effect any future application for a grant they were unable to tell me.

Interesting!
I have the Nest on order with EI (not yet installed). I also plan on upgrading boiler in the next couple of years. By availing of this Nest offer, will I be then unable to claim the €700 SEAI "heating controls" grant when I eventually upgrade my boiler?
SEAI might be able to give me an answer

I don't know if the scheme they're tapping is the same as the SEAI one. SEAI one requires BER certs and Rather A Lot of paperwork; this doesn't.

Yes. All the time clock does is close a circuit like a switch. This is what NEST does too

They’d be using this one:

I think they work that smart controls save 20% and they take that off the national average household usage. That’s the credit they get.

Interesting reading. Is the consensus that eligibility to claim €700 SEAI heating control grant in the future is unaffected by having EI install Nest.

Sounds too good to be true, so I went and ordered it anyway

Scheduled for install in February, not sure if they send the Nest and Home Mini to me first, or if installer comes equipped with Nest and Google Home Mini comes seperately, after install is complete.

Some people have been known to get three Nests by creating three separate orders using the same details on each order.

Guys, quick question for you as I don't know a whole lot about central heating. I'm going to ring EI but forearmed with information first is not a bad idea:

I have an external oil burner with an on/off switch and timer in the kitchen. I have two separate thermostats (one downstairs and one upstairs). The plan would be to replace the heating timer in the kitchen with a nest and eventually replace the two thermostats at a later stage. My question is would the Nest be suitable to replace just the heating timer for the moment or would the timer plus other thermostat zones need replacing all at the same time? I'm not too worried about not being able to control the temperature in the other zones at present through Nest.

For now I really just want to be able to switch the heating on remotely through the Nest app or google home. Is the Nest suitable for this?
