    What height do you folks mount Room Stats at?

    The Hitler from Building Control NI has flagged one I have installed (1.5M) as being too high and wants it dropped to 1.2M to top of it:001_9898:. Never have had this as issue before and as far as I can recall manufacturers recommend around 1.5M!

    I'd normally go about 1.5m but I hardly do any new build. I suppose you could claim that if a light switch has to be accessible to mini me then so does a stat but who knows. That building inspector sounds like a real fun guy.

    This old chestnut... 'M' regs verses common sense

    It is not always appropriate to place a heat sensitive switch at waist level, often due to little fingers tweaking them as well as drafts etc....

    Never came across him before nor has the builder. He's not making things easy!

    Will have to look at see which make I have fitted there, the only instructions I have to hand are from Salus and they say 1500mm

    Its different building regs in Northern Ireland which will complicate things a little as most here are England/Wales based. In general they are the same, just all jumbled up letters wise!

    Thanks, has been fitted as such, although need to confirm specific manufacturers instructions. Building control can be a bunch of idiots at times though so may have to lower the blooming thing to get them to pass it...which would make the job ok with building control but not BS 7671, insane!

    Imagine if building control and the implementation of building regs was carried out by ex-builders instead of jumped up, brothel bred, little neo nazi jobsworths. The building game 'd be booming

    Practically all thermostats I've ever fitted have said 1500 high so a bit contradicting when building regs say pretty much anything between 450 and 1200...always fitted them as per manu instructions :)

    And if the say it has to be at 1200 then hit the ball back as that will increase the carbon foot print of the building as heat rises so it will take more heat and burn more fuel to switch off the stat !!!!
