    How much each????? oh my, are they really that much better than a manually operated thermostatic valve, in everyday use I cant see how they will be, almost certainly more of a complicated & unnecessary faff to operate..
    Duncan Bannatyne would probably say "Totally Rediculous"

    complete waste of money imo, how long to recoup the additional cost of having a gadget?

    The sellers say about a year to 15 months.
    I like the idea of say having the living room only on between 5pm and 11pm, the bedroom on from 10pm till 12 midnight, then on again from 6am till 8.30am.
    Plus you can set 3 levels of heat.
    No, i'm not on commission.

    All they do is adjust the flow to one rad.

    The heating would still need to be running in the house for them to work.

    It wouldnt matter what times there we set to adjust. All you want to do is keep a room at a certain temperature.

    Agreed, but the living room is not used during the day Monday to Friday.
    It needs to be warm during the evening only.
    The Bathroom is always on with the heating.
    The bedrooms need heat early morning and late evening.
    Plus the heating is on AM and PM only now, and left running 24/7 during the winter.
    But the same pattern during the week.
    Plus each radiator has a remote control, so, for example, it can be turned up or down easily.
    As you say, once the TRV's are set they are normally just left alone.
    And that can lead to both over and under temperature at different times.
