Save money this autumn with smart boiler controls
With the cost of living rising at the fastest levels seen for decades, the majority of UK homeowners will be focussing on saving money this autumn. One way you can help to reduce your heating bills is to invest in smart technology. Read on to discover how it can help you reduce your bills and make your home greener at the same time.
Smarter heating with Google Nest
Nest have been a market leader in intelligent home technology for over a decade and are now extremely popular in the UK. The Nest brand was acquired by Google in 2014 and their tried and tested smart technology has become a firm favourite for millions of users. Behind their smart home technology is a simple mission - to help your home take care of you.
Google Nest is a simple, stylish and innovative smart device that has a lot to offer - but most importantly, can save you money by optimising your heating to fit your habits. Features include voice control, remote control via the Nest app and compatibility with other Nest home products. It also boasts a large, bright display, making it user friendly for everybody. As a Nest Pro Installer, we can get your new boiler set up and running with the latest generation Nest Learning Thermostat - get in touch today to find out more.
Smart Controllers by Worcester Bosch
If you already have a Worcester Bosch boiler, then it is well worth considering their latest generation of smart boiler controllers as an alternative to Nest systems. The latest range of Worcester Bosch controls allow you to take advantage of features such as a smart, internet-connected programmable control for central heating and hot water which can be operated using a smartphone or tablet, as well as innovative programming that enables it to have an 'intelligent conversation' with the boiler and take advantage of advanced control features such as weather and load compensation.
Bosch smart home technology is also now fully compatible with Alexa, meaning that with a Bosch smart thermostat, you can now simply adjust the temperature of your home via voice command and create your very own feel-good climate. If you want to get even more specific, different rooms or ‘zones’ can be controlled independently - great if you like a cooler bedroom but a warm and cosy bathroom, for example.
Tado Smart Thermostats
If you have a Worcester Bosch Greenstar boiler, you may also wish to consider linking it up with the tado° smart thermostat, which allows you to get a smart heating system up and running quickly and easily. Available in both a wired and wireless version, the tado° Smart Thermostat helps you to save energy and maximize comfort and works with both standard central heating as well as underfloor heating.
Tado’s Smart Schedule, lets you plan your desired day and night time temperatures in time blocks based on your routine, while its Geofencing feature reminds you to turn down the heating when the last person leaves home and to turn it up in time for the first person’s arrival. Tado° also detects open windows and reminds you to turn down your heating to save more energy. Other features are also available.
