    Do i need a thermostat upgrade?

    Heating Engineers

    I currently have a Honeywell programmable thermostat which is great. However, when I light my log fire it turns all the heating off so that the rest of the house is cold. Would the solution be to change to a wireless thermostat and if so which one?

    "If the thermostat is in the room with the burner then the heat from the burner will cause the heating to go off due to the rise in air temp, a wireless stat would be the easiest solution."

    "Move the thermostat to the hallway or turn it up. You could change to a wireless one if the boiler is compatible."

    You need to relocate the thermostat to a suitable position ie the hall with a radiator that has 2 lockshield valves. This would solve your problem."
