Best Smart Heating Controls - Compatibility Guide
How to use this guide
New installations of a combi boiler:
require a programmable room thermostat with an ‘advanced’ energy saving feature, i.e weather compensation, load compensation or smart controls that combine automation and optimisation features. (Alternatively you can fit a flue gas recovery unit.)
New installations of a heat only or system boiler:
require a programmable room thermostat or a thermostat with separate programmer. You can still opt to install an advanced control and we guide you compatibility.
Existing boiler installations:
have no minimum requirement for heating controls. You can replace your room thermostat with another room thermostat and nothing more. Again you can opt for an advanced control or may wish to have the functionality of an internet control and we guide you suitable smart products below.
