    condensing combi boiler temperature setting 23rd Mar 08 at 11:33 PM
    well i can control the hot water and central heating temp's on my boilers control panel

    i am happy with the water at 50 degrees as its just hot enough for a hot bath/shower, but not scalding

    however, i'm unsure what to set the central heating to. ive tried 65 and 70. but my main concern is whats best to save money? is it better to blast it out hot for a shorter time, or have it on longer at a lower temperature?

    also i have thermo valves on the radiators is it worth using these or have them all fully open ? if someone knows the most efficient way of controlling heating id love to know. for note, i dont have any room thermostats, just a heating timer (3 periods a day) and the rad valves.
