Well in your case,if the central heating was working before you change the defective thermoatat.Phaps you have done the wrong connection of the thermostat,if you look well at the connection of the thermostat, how will you recognise the earth borne is that it is fixed to the body of the part,so this means that the thermostat 3 cores are (1) common,(2) normally close,(3) normally open.With a multimeter it be very easy to determine the core that you have to cannect.

Probably put your family at risk of electricution . By connecting the live cables to earth you have effectivly made all the metal light fittings live. It is amazing that the fuse has not blown, This in itself is dangerous and you should have an electrician look at the wiring.
The correct wiring should be as follows.
Identify cables there should be 2 twin and earth (red black & copper earth) cables and 1 twin red and copper earth. (or 2 single red wires)
connect all copper earth wires suitably sheathed in green/yellow sleeving to earth lug.
Connect 2 black cables to neutral block.
Connect either single red (0r 1 of 2 reds) into live block.
connect remaining 3 reds into loop block.

Live goes to live as normal earth to earth as normal, and the neutral is probably a comonj terminal, in other words it probably has a lnk joining the 2 neutrals together.
