Get Smart with Smart Controls
Save money and take control of your heating bills with Smart Controls – we install Smart Controls so you can control your heating by your smart device.
Smart Central heating and hot water Controls
Smart Controls connect wirelessly to the internet via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth so that you can control your heating and hot water system where ever you happen to be as long as you have access to the internet via your PC tablet or smart phone.
Will a Smart Control work on my set up?
The answer is yes! Almost all systems can be made to accommodate Smart Controls in one form or another. All you need is wifi and electricity!
Can Smart Controls save me money?
Yes! Smart controls will save you money short-term and long-term and depending how frugal you are with them.
You have the power to control your heating system room by room, at any moment of the day or night which means you have more control over your heating consumption and therefore your heating bills.
Smart Controls Know When you’re out
For example, if you are staying out for the evening, the central heating can remain off. Equally, when you’re on your way home, you can switch the heating on in advance so that your home is warm on your arrival.
Smart Controls have optimisation which means it works out how long the heating needs to be on to reach your comfort heating level, taking into account outside conditions and temperature, which means it predicts an earlier or later start up times.

What else do I need to know about Smart Controlling my heating?
There are new efficiency standards which were introduced in April 2018 with the objective of reducing the amount of fuel we consume to heat and produce hot water in our homes.
It is now a requirement for every new boiler installation to be fitted with a programmable room thermostat.
For central heating or hot water systems additional energy saving measures have to be included.
There are 3 requirements now made by building regulations:
- Every boiler installation must have an ErP efficiency of at least 92% (not to be confused with boiler efficiencies which are 89-94%
- All new boilers must be fitted with a programmable time and temperature controls like a programmable room thermostat.
- An additional energy saving measure must also be installed for combination boilers from the ?
a. Weather compensation control?
b. Load compensation control
?c. Smart control with automation and optimisation functions scheme?d
d. Flue gas recovery unit – this sits above the boiler and recovers heat from the flue. It is reported to reduce gas consumption by up to 4%.
It just goes to show that with today?s technology, you really can save money on your heating system with these very clever organised Smart responsive systems.
What They Say
Tony has worked for us twice, the last a difficult job replacing an aged boiler that was in a confined space. He was very well organised and professional and he and his colleague Taylor always courteous. When replacing the controller, there was a particular problem created by our old programmer?s wiring and he worked on it relentlessly until the system was working perfectly. Definitely recommend.
Tony and Taylor were very efficient and friendly. We went out and left them to get on with the work of installing our new boiler. When we came back the job was done: very much to my satisfaction. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
