Boiler and Heating Controls
Boiler Controls, Saving you money!
Heating and boiler controls are as important as a New boiler itself, we offer the most efficient, advanced and user friendly controls available. We are experienced with Honeywell Evo Home, and Honeywell smart controls, Tado Smart controls, Hive and Nest just to name a few !
Are the old dial thermostats destined for the scrapheap?
For most of us, the room thermostat is a simple dial on the wall that allows you (in theory at least) to control the temperature of the home. These old style thermostats are not the most accurate of controls and now there are far more advanced ones available , the point being the new ones can save you money and fuel!
Honeywell Evohome, Hive and Tado
These systems ensure you’re always in charge of your home heating & stored hot water – wherever you are.
These controls have a simple to use control panel that lets you set the temperature in every room in your home – from anywhere in your home or elsewhere , The Honeywell Evohome can have up to 12 zones per control and as many radiator valve heads (HR92/90 ) as you want per zone , it can also control underfloor heating , The Hive and Tado now also have individual radiator thermostats that can be controlled via their Apps
With ever increasing fuel bills and the need to be as eco-friendly as possible, it’s important that we all look for ways to save fuel and carbon emissions – and money!
But there is a way to save even more –with just a simple outdoor sensor and some very clever Weather Compensation controls, now available on all manufacturers of combi condensing boilers.
For a relatively small investment you’ll not only save more fuel each year but you’ll also enjoy an incredibly comfortable home – with a pleasant indoor temperature – whatever the weather.
Heating – the basics
Our homes need heating, to replace heat lost through the walls etc. The colder it is outside, the more heat is lost and the more we have to heat the building, to replace that heat, especially in the winter when the heat loss is at its highest level.
This basic explanation is fundamental to understanding how an outdoor weather sensor can help to heat your home in a more efficient and cost-effective way.
Weather compensation controls work by ensuring that the boiler burns the exact amount of fuel required to match the heat lost from the building. The house will always be warm (at the desired temperature) and will never be too hot or too cold. Weather compensation significantly improves
efficiency under partial load conditions and is especially relevant for the UK climate, as for two thirds of the year the boiler will provide only a fraction of its maximum heat load, which means the boiler temperature is reduced for the majority of the year, while still maintaining a constant room temperature of 20ºC.
