In years gone by you had to control your heating via the central heating controls in your home.

1, People Forget Smart Thermostats Don’t
People, in general, are very busy and their minds are cluttered there are times when you will forget to switch your heating on making you cold and uncomfortable or turn it down when your homes to warm. Homeowners usually leave the thermostat on one setting and let the central heating controls do the rest. Considering that heating accounts for nearly 50% of the average energy bill, this will waste money. A Smart Thermostat will remember your routine and preferred temperatures; they can adjust the temperatures as necessary depending on if you’re at home or if you’ve gone out.
2, Intelligent Heating
A Smart Thermostat will save you energy and money by utilising intelligent heating. The thermostat will analyse how your home heats up and use every bit of heat optimally. For example, the thermostat will work out how long the heat from a radiator can keep your room at your desired temperature after the heatings turned off and will switch your Boiler off at the exact right time. They also monitor outside temperature and take into account the effect this will have on indoor temperature. Milder mornings will mean the boiler’s switched on later for example. Smart Thermostats offer the ultimate in heat optimisation.

When at work or away on holiday you can always check your heatings running smoothly at the correct temperatures.

Whatever your circumstances you can set up alerts so if the temperature drops you’ll know immediately.
