Boiler smart controls are the latest and most efficient way to help cut your energy prices. Combined with a modern condensing boiler these energy efficient controls can boost your heating system’s overall performance.
What are the benefits?
The standard controls for your boiler will be fairly basic. They will allow you to programme in the time of day you want your heating to turn on and off over a 7 day period, and will heat to the temperature set on your thermostat.
If the boiler is particularly old it may not even have these basic controls. Building Regulations state that domestic heating control systems must be upgraded when installing a new boiler to include time and temperature controls.
There are a huge range of domestic heating controls available that suit all heating systems, requirements and budgets. Just how complex your heating controls are can be up to you, but the aim of the controls is to improve efficiency and to stop money being wasted on unnecessary heating usage.
