We fit a wide range of heating controls to make your home or business more energy efficient and investing in modern heating controls can help you to save money on your heating bills. You have a more precise indication of the temperature inside your home and can control it more accurately. Turning down the thermostat or scheduling your heating and hot water to go on or off more easily means that you can save money and reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
Some controls also allow you to select different temperatures in different areas of your home or office, rather that heating the whole building to the same temperature. Again, this can reduce your energy consumption.
Smart heating controls are connected to your wifi network and are operated using an app on a smart phone or tablet. This means that you can adjust your heating and hot water settings when you’re not at home (or work). This is ideal if your plans change, meaning that you’re not heating an empty building if you get delayed. Alternatively, you can turn on the heating when you’re on your way back so that it’s nice and warm when you arrive.
Smart controls are compatible with all new heating systems. We install popular brands of heating controls such as Nest or Hive as well as many others supplied by boiler manufacturers. Contact us to ask about what will best suit your needs.
We recommend installing weather compensation controls to increase energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption and provide a more even temperature within the property. They enable the boiler to respond to temperature changes outside and adjust the heat output to the radiators. This prevents the inside of the building getting too hot or too cold. Although weather compensation controls are not commonly used in the UK at the moment, they are widely used in mainland Europe.
