Hi there
My brother has had a new combi boiler fitted but it has not been wired up and the plumber has gone.

There are 2 silver boxes attached to the pipe work with wires, but no red pump.
I am guessing these boxes are some sort of electric valve things.
My question is how are they wired up as I don't have them on my system so don't really know.
Are they wired into ring circuit from a fused spur?

Cheers

Hopefully your brother hasn't paid the guy yet.

One assumes they are motorized valves for the heating zones if he doesn't have a cylinder.

Standard information required about the system, boiler make/model etc. ideally with pics.

I'll try get photos on later.

It's an ideal vogue c26

The boxes are Honeywell and are on the 22mm pipe one before it goes under ground floor and same pipe going up to first floor

Have they been added new or leftover from the previous boiler

Hmm didn't think of that.
The old boiler was a back boiler behind fire

No cylinder just a straight forward combi boiler.

They are two motorized zone valves, which control, separately, the heating downstairs and upstairs.

And, no, they are not wired into the ring circuit via a fused spur. They need to be wired to programmers/thermostats (e.g Honeywell RF2 Pack 5) and to the boiler. The installer, if Part P qualified, or a competent electrician will be required to wire them correctly.

Why did the installer leave the job unfinished?

The red pump is built into the boiler (may be grey).
