Boiler controls

Boiler controls can make a significant different difference to your heating system. If installed and used correctly heating controls can boost your heating performance.

Boiler controls can be divided by smart thermostats and digital controls

Smart thermostats

Smart thermostats utilised the internet and allow you to control your heating via your phone or tablet using an app. This is perfect if for example you are away for the weekend would like to come home to a warm home or you would like to check you energy usage on the move.

Examples are the Nest controls, HIVE controls and Bosch EasyControl.

Digital heating controls

Digital heating controls are very easy to operate and there is no requirement for a smart phone. For example the Worcester Greenstar Comfort 1 is a popular choice due to its quick installation and reliability.

Drayton heating controls are also very popular, Drayton is one of the UK’s leading heating control brands.

Radiator thermostats

Radiator thermostats are another way to enhance your heating’s performance. They work by sensing the air temperature adjacent to the radiator and turning the flow of hot water to the radiator on or off depending on if the air temperature is above or below the chosen point by you.

When used properly, they will significantly reduce the energy used by the heating system through limiting the temperatures within each room and reducing fuel bills.
