I think the issue with this 5 degree stat in the garage is because the boiler is in the garage and needs to be frost protected.
Crikey lads, it was only suggested as a solution for future thought. It works in my home and all of my neighbours have got frozen pipes. I wasnt saying it as some kind of expert, just that (As wwaswas has stated even more eloquently, it protects my garage located boiler and as a added benefit if the garage gets anywhere near to freezing, my house automatically warms up as well so no burst pipes.
It doesnt cost a fortune because it switches on and off regularly to keep a maintained temp and as i said, i can control both thermostats. I altered the garage one to 5dg just to be on the safe side tbh
