How Does a Smart Home Heating System Work?

There’s nothing worse than sitting at home feeling chilly. You don’t want to be wrapped up in a big woolly jumper when you’re relaxing on the sofa, and you definitely don’t want to put a scarf or hat on. Some central heating systems are set to a programmable temperature that you may not be able to adjust, but smart home heating systems are different.

You don’t have to go over to the boiler and turn the dial hoping that you instantly find the perfect temperature, as smart heating systems can be operated from an app on your mobile phone. If you’re sat on the sofa watching a film with friends and family you don’t have to miss a second of the action as you can crank the heating up in just a few seconds without even having to stand up.

With wireless heating controls you can adjust the central heating inside your home – in any room – at the touch of a button giving you complete control over the temperature in each and every room in the house. This means that you don’t have to compromise your own comfort for that of your partner or children any longer, and therefore you won’t be sat on the sofa in shorts while your partner is wearing a coat!

What’s included in a smart home heating system?

Smart home heating systems work with the majority of heating systems including combi, system and heat-only boilers, zoned heating systems and even underfloor heating giving you full control over the temperature everywhere in your home.

When you buy a smart heating system like the tado Smart Radiator Thermostat Starter Kit you get a number of items and units inside the box that all provide a valuable function, making this the ideal package to choose when you first install your wireless heating.

A smart radiator valve is fitted to your radiator quickly and easily and enables you to control the temperature in that room individually from your mobile phone. Best of all with the Tado smart valve it automatically senses when there is nobody home and starts to reduce the temperature accordingly.

Then when you’re on the way back to the house from work, shopping or the school run you can set the system to come on so that you can arrive back to a toasty house at a comfortable temperature.

Overall the most important thing when it comes to smart home heating systems from a homeowner’s perspective is that there is no need to worry about whole scale changes to your home. There would be no need to replace the boiler or your existing system, necessarily, and you wouldn’t need to switch energy provider either. The whole wireless heating system can be installed in a matter of hours.
