What exactly is smart heating and how does it work? 

Smart heating refers to a technologically advanced heating system that you can operate from anywhere. It is connected to your heating system in the same way as a traditional heating control system is, with the exception that you may access it from your mobile device (phone or tablet).

So how do smart thermostats work?

 A smart thermostat is made up of three parts that operate together. The first component is a wirelessly connected control unit that is installed on your boiler. The final component is the heating control app, which you must download. 

What do I need to do to get smart heating installed in my home?

It is critical that you choose a Gas Safe registered engineer to complete the installation. Gas Safe accredited engineers like us here at Elements Heating Installations are fully trained and qualified to carry out the essential wiring safely, so we would be delighted to install a new smart control in your home so that you can save money on your central heating. 

Are your smart thermostats going to be compatible with my current boiler?

Yes! The vast majority of smart thermostats will be compatible with your current boiler. 

Do I have to use an app to operate my smart heating all of the time? 

Smart thermostats allow you complete control over your heating system, whether you use an app to control it or change the settings manually. So you don't have to use an app all of the time if you don't want to. 

Is my hot water going to be controlled by a smart control system? 

Only if you have a hot water tank can your smart control system control your hot water. 

Do smart thermostats work with underfloor heating?

Yes! Smart thermostats are completely compatible with both wet and electric underfloor heating systems.

What happens to my smart thermostat if my internet connection drops?

It is still possible for you to physically regulate the heating in your home if your internet connection breaks, so you don't have to worry about losing access to your heating settings.
