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. I say in theory, because during our home survey and Green Deal Assessments we go into a great number of homes who actually have their thermostats turned up to 300c, but the house very rarely gets anywhere near that sort of temperature.

The downsides of a classic room thermostat

Now – don’t get me wrong, thermostats are a fantastic invention, but they are pretty limited. We go into homes where the thermostat is situated right by the front door – so is exposed to an almost constant stream of cold air, which means that the thermostat is will invariably send a signal to the boiler to fire up since it is recording the ambient temperature as very low.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][box_header title=”Honeywell Evohome” type=”h2″ bottom_border=”1″][vc_column_text]evohome means you’re always in charge of your home heating & stored hot water – wherever you are.

All boilers now have to be condensing boilers and this represents a huge step forward in environmentally friendly heating, with fuel savings of up to 35% compared to conventional boilers.

But there is a way to save even more – up to 15% in fact, with just a simple outdoor sensor and some very clever Weather Compensation controls, available with the Vitodens range of condensing boilers.
For a relatively small investment you’ll not only save up to 15% 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. Only around 15% of the homes total heat energy usage is consumed during winter temperatures between -3 to -10ºC.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
