Heating Controls

Controls are the brain of the system; they control all the sensors and valves. There are several controls attached to a heating system.

Our promise is to always be fair honest and open on pricing. Heating controls vary from one device to another, based on manufacturers it would be unfair of us to mislead you with an ambiguous price.

Heating Controls

Central Heating Controls

Boiler Thermostat Controls

This controls the temperature pumped around the system in your home. You will find this as a dial with degrees shown.

Programmer and Timer Controls

If fitted to your system, this will control the on off function to your heating, as well as the flow of hot water to your radiators to heat the individual rooms in your home.

Individual Room Thermostat Controls

These are placed in individual rooms to measure the air temperature in each room. You set these to the desired temperature in your rooms. If the temperature drops below the set temperature it triggers the heating system to turn on. These controls are not as popular in modern heating systems.

Thermostatic Radiator Valves

You will find these on many heating systems as they are a popular choice to control your radiators. The TVR regulates the flow of water around the radiator as well as controlling the on/off setting on a radiator, depending on stings. These do not control the boiler directly.

Smart Controls and Thermostat

As we have told you before, SMART stands for “Self-Monitoring Analysis & Reporting Technology”, but what exactly is it that makes a ‘smart’ thermostat smart?

Well, while a standard mediocre boiler thermostat offers some basic functions like switching the heating on and off, timer settings and some rudimentary temperature controls, a SMART thermostat lets you manage every minute of your home’s heating schedule from the palm of your hand, through a tablet or smartphone.
