Getting to Know SMART Heating Systems
SMART stands for ‘Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology’, and when it comes to SMART heating this lets you manage every minute of your home’s heating schedule from the palm of your hand through a tablet or smartphone.
You won’t even need to leave the comfort of your sofa to be in complete control!
Understanding SMART Heater Controls
A SMART heating control works a little differently and more efficiently than your typical thermostat, using three basic components to provide a more user-friendly and accessible way to control your home’s heating.
The first component will usually plug directly into your boiler and talk wirelessly to the second component, an in-home device that’s the main control unit and thermostat controlling what is going on whilst the final component is the app that you need to download to a smartphone or tablet.
How Does SMART Heating Benefit Me?
Although you may feel totally happy with your current programmable thermostat, you may not be aware of the benefits of a SMART heating controls, so here’s a few to consider –
Money Saver – You won’t be surprised to learn that we can waste a lot of money heating an empty home. We all want to come home to a warm and cosy house after a long day at work, especially in winter. Some central heating systems just can’t guarantee this, so we end up leaving the heating on all day. This can be expensive and incredibly inefficient, plus it does nothing to help to lower our carbon footprint.
SMART heating systems mean you can set the temperature well in advance and your system will work it out and get your home at the ideal temperature for when you come home.
Adapting to Outdoor Temperatures – Newer SMART heating controls have the functionality to consider the temperature outside, meaning your heating will come on earlier than usual on particularly chilly days.
