Is it legal requirement to have a thermostat on an existing boiler.
I have aVaillant ecoTEC plus boiler at my flat which I rent, it apparently does not have a thermostat, I want to know if it is a legal requirement to have one fitted or not, I would very much appreciate if anyone can help me with the right answer please. I cannot control the heating at all it's either too hot or cold and has to be done manually. Appreciated.

It's not a legal requirement to have one on an existing boiler but best to have one fitted so not to waste energy and to avoid being the tight ass landlord.
It is however a requirement to have one fitted on any new installation yes google boiler plus for explanation.
