Pulsacoil Timer help?

Post  paulmreed on Thu Nov 22, 2012 9:10 am

Hi,

I am hoping someone can help, I am a tennant who has recently moved into a property with a pulsacoil 2000 bolier. I have searched to find an answer to my query but nothing seems to fit the bill.

I have downloaded and read the user manual but i have a question regarding the timer unit and when i should be programming the boiler to come on.

We have a single timer unit on the wall adjacent to the bolier. Can i ask does this timer control both the Economy 7 (bottom) element and the boost (top) element?

IE should i be setting the timer to come on through the night to utilise the off peak electricity to warm the main tank and then using boost when we require it?

Sorry if this seems a daft question but i was wondering if the bolier would have its own built in timer to utilise the off peak elec and i just use the on wall timer to boost this.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

All depends on who fitted it and how.
Read the user book
And the manual.
Or post some picture of what you have.
Best to heat the unit up OFF PEAK.
The boost will be ON PEAK.
Asked any neighbours what / how they deal with theirs?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply.

I have read the user book and the manual before posting. I cant find any reference to a single control unit. Presumably as you can use many different control units?

Having asked our neighbours they all seem to have the boiler on the day which puzzled me.

We will look at using the timer off peak and see if that works. I have an energy meter so i can check whether it has been drawning elec over night.

Thanks again

Reading the manual will / should give you an idea as to how they have connected your unit up.
As there are many choices / ways. And it does depend on location etc etc.
You can have one time clock, with a boost option.
You may have an off peak supply (E7 or E10)
And an on peak supply.
Any decent electrician should be able to advise you.

Confirm with your electricity supplier when your lower rate tariff is on and then set your timer accordingly.
