Smart Controls

Smart thermostats and smart home heating systems have become readily available to almost all homes over the past few years. They allow you to adjust temperature and control when the heating comes on from your phone or tablet because they’re connected to the internet via your router.

But not all smart home heating systems are made equal, and which one works best for you is another question altogether.

Hive and Nest operate using a thermostat positioned in a commonly used area such as the living room and regulate the temperature of the house to that room but if you have thermostatic radiator valves in each room these will also affect the individual room temperature.

The Honeywell Evohome uses wireless technology to communicate with up to 12 areas of your property to regulate temperature and it can also control hot water.
