ESI Wireless Programmable Room Thermostat Boiler Plus Control ESRTP4RF


My name’s Allen Hart and today I’m gonna
look at a new control for boiler plus so this is a new control that will comply
with your boiler plus regulations and this is the ESI control so what I’m
gonna do is I’m going to open it up and I’m gonna have a look inside see what I
think to it now this is the first one I’ve seen I’m not open the box yet so
I’m gonna open it up and I’m gonna give you my first opinion of it and then what
we’re gonna do then is we’re going to starve it onto this foxy 600 boiler here
and then we’ll say up and see what would think of it now I do welcome feedback
from anybody who is installing these already so if you’re already installing
these I’d really be grateful add some comments below and let us know what you
think to it so that’s a lot now so first of all I’d like to thank Spinks in laits
the plumbers merchants they’ve provided this control for me to do a review on
rather than so let’s have a look inside the box so what do we get
instructions some more instructions the controller some batteries not in there the receiver
looks like it’s got a standard style back plate I’ll have a look at that in a
minute salt fixing screws and then I stand so
that must clip on the stand so as always I’d advise you to read the instructions
if you’re gonna be installing quite a few of these then if you read the
instructions first time then least you’ll be fitting them right from
Dearborn so yeah read the instructions most important
thing of all so if we have a look getting instructions here it just tells
you we need to be 1.5 meters high so I’ve undone the two screws have the
battler lift the back plate off I’m just going to fit the ballot on here so this is only for demonstration
purposes I’ll be taking this back off afterwards so we’ve isolated the boiler
we’ve done as electrical checks so always make sure that you’re competent
if you’re gonna be working on gas and also if you go take the case off a
boiler you need to be gas there Freddie stood so let’s look inside now so at the
moment in this box here 600 we’ve got it connected via open firm so we’ve got a
nest thermostat on this at the moment so I’m going to disconnect this and then
we’re gonna connect our new control into this so if we have a look here we’ve got
live I’ve got a neutral on God’s earth and then we’ve got switch wires here
then switch way is we’re gonna put in here because this control works off CPI
so what I will cut that now so I’ve got that end there so that’s for as neutral
well that’s for us live and then we’ve got common there which is number one
that goes back to polar you can link these in some cases I always try and
feed it directly from violife if I can and then you got number two which is
normally open and then this is just a mess at the
moment cuz this is gonna be getting taken back out and a few minutes after
we finish this video but that is to those two ways there which the number
one and the number two there so that’s just you normal link that you have in a
combo and then in this case we’ve got as live and God neutral we’ve got Earth
from the boiler as well so there’s a cut out section it bomb up here for the
wires and then the receiver just clicks on to there and then for purpose of this
video I’m going to put the clock here so just come with a stand as well but I’m
just going to put it on the wall here and then we can see it working together
when we all fire it up so the programmer that’s wireless and it gives the option
so you can you can fit on till stand or you can fit it on the wall if you like
and then the color batteries so I’m just go put these batteries into here now so
we’ve put the berries in there now and then we’re going to send the power on to
this so first glance we’ve got time and dear we’ve got
program off manual and Artur so I’m just gonna have a little look in
the instructions now I’m just grab a little read up and then we’ll come back
and we’ll we’ll have a lot of play with us so if I put on to time and date there
we can adjust the time so is the time is correct so we’ll just leave that also
the day is correct as well but we can do that with settings on here
and then if you do across on the bottom there which is a little bit faster it’s
okay we can do we can do tyre program to say program and then off so if you short
turn it off and then manual you put on some when you’re aware we can turn it up
and down with those so if you see there it says what what the setpoint is what
we want to say – and that tells us what the temperature is in here at the moment so if you had that pipeline and that is
firing it’s already too warm in here so when you first look at this the cover
doesn’t stay down so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got
to pull that cover our front of it and then it goes down there but this is this
is a the ESI wireless programmable room thermostat and it’s about five pound for
forty pound it also complies a pilot plus okay I don’t think you can go wrong
with it five pound to be honest it looks it looks okay and obviously it will
depend on how reliable they are going forward but this is TPI as well so yeah
it looks good I’m quite impressive it to be honest some of it feels a little bit
cheap like that BAM there it’s got like a little line there which is a little
bit hard to see but for five pound you can’t fault a DA think to be honest
so that says ESI programmable room thermostat which is Wireless and it
complies with boiler plus so all in all my opinion
fire obviously I’m not installed them on customers houses yet so don’t know how
reliable they will be going forward but I think they look good they look okay
they look value for money and I don’t think there’s anything on the market
that’s anywhere near that price for the functions that this does it also has
advanced settings in there as well which I’m going to play with a bit later but
thanks for watching hope this video was of some use to somebody thank you
