C plan link

Dead link removed

Y plan is most common using a 3 port mid position valve, with both hot water & heating pumped & temperture controlled.

S plan is most common using 2 port zone valves, with both hot water & heating pumped & temperture controlled.

W plan is using a 3 port diverting valve to give hot water priority, over heating, with both hot water & heating pumped & temperture controlled.

C plan is to control the water tempeture on a gravity hot water system with pumped heating, using a room thermostat.

Hi is it possible to change a w plan system into a y plan? is it a case of swapping the diverter valve for a mid position valve? i know there is some wiring alterations to be done.

Yes, you may get away with just changing the actuator and rewiring everything.
