Discuss Hive thermostat recently installed. Ideal h15 boiler ..heating working but hot water is off in the Plumbing Forum | Plumbing Advice area at PlumbersForums.net

I have got Ideal Heat H15 boiler and got Hive thermostat active heating installed recently by electrician. After multiple rounds the electrician managed to get heating on from the Hive thermostat. When the heating is on, boiler fires up and passes to the radiators. Pressing the Hot Water to On or Booster in Hive makes no difference to the boiler and the status is 00 in boiler. I have got hot cyclinder tank in airing cupboard and also immersion heater. The electrician is saying it is no fault and this boiler is only for heating. I believe now my hot water is due to the immersion heater and it is consuming electricity instead of gas.

Need some help on this and where the fault could be ?

Thanks..

I hope you didn’t pay him, or if you did then not much. What was taken out? Can you post any photos of cylinder cupboard, wiring center and hive wiring?

The hive - is it dual channel? If yes, then it doesn’t have a wire in hot water on terminal, if it’s only a single channel, you need a dual channel. Also not zones for heating will come on together.

:D your missing wires in there

Ideally you need a twin zone eg heating and hot water and a single heating one aswell

Yes. I didn't want to go for multi zone hive thermostat (zone 2) with all the issues . So at the moment only zone 1 (downstairs ). and hot water I went for hive to be put.
