Boilermate OV comparability

I’m looking at getting Tado but I’m unsure how my current heating setup would integrate. I have a Boilermate OV which controls the heating and hot water. There’s a separate boiler but that seems to simply fire up based on the timings set on the BMl and room thermostat. Does anyone have experience of using Tado with a Boilermate?


  • Hi there,

    I have a Boilermate OV and have today installed a Tado for the central heating, which seems to be working fine.

    Note that you can’t control the hot water function as it’s a heat-store and should be left on at all times for best efficiency.
  • Excellent thanks for commenting. Which Tado kit did you purchase as I’m unsure if the extension kit would be required.
  • Purchased the basic kit and it’s all set up and working. Not yet convinced it’s worth the investment, as the radiator thermostats seem to kick the heating in for the rest of the house.
