Smart heating controls: more than just convenient
Smart control technologies have become a staple in the modern home. Applied to heating systems, they allow people to find the perfect temperature with a simple press of a phone, tablet or other remote devices. However, the popularity of smart controls is down to more than just convenience.
The ability to adjust your boiler as easily as you would open an app on your phone can result in hundreds of pounds in savings each year.
According to Nest, the smart heating control provider, the average UK customer can save between 8.4% and 16.5% on heating bills by using their products.
Many smart control technologies also feature automation, allowing you to set when your boiler should fire up and how much by for when you need it most.
Working around you
In addition to automation, a number of smart control technologies offer highly customisable features to match your daily routines.
One popular feature is geolocation, which detects when your smartphone is getting close to home and tells the boiler to activate in time for your arrival, then deactivate as you leave.
Some advanced features can incur added cost and may not be necessary depending on your daily routine, which is something you should consider before making a purchase.
Log and learn
Nearly all smart control technologies can track and record your heating usage over a period of time.
This simple feature will help you see exactly where money is being spent and what you can do to improve the heating efficiency of your property.
Combined with automation, learning from your usage will enable you to set up sophisticated algorithms and get the most out of your boiler.
