Do I need to hire a local heating control and SMART sensor specialist?

Heating controls and SMART sensors are intelligent heating systems that remember your day-to-day energy consumption habits. They automatically control the heat output to match your daily routine. Even before you get up, your home will be heated to the desired temperature. When you leave the house, the SMART sensors will shut down your heating and reduce the heat in all rooms. Once you head back home in the evening, your heating system will have already heated each room to the perfect temperature, saving you money on bills while also keeping you comfortably warm.

If this sounds like something you want in your home, then you’ll want to speak to some heating control installers near you. Similarly, if your heating controls and SMART heating sensors start to malfunction, you could experience uncomfortable temperatures at home and costly heating bills. The same experts will be able to quickly assess what the issues are affecting your system and provide cost-effective solutions. You can use HaMuch’s quick and simple three step process to find the perfect local tradesman for the job.

What do central heating control and smart sensor specialists near you do?

A system of smart heating controls has many parts and functions — to name a few there’s a timer, a programmer, motorised valves and thermostatic radiator valves, and that’s not even going into the individual room thermostats around your house. A heating engineer that specialises in controls and sensors will check all these parts to ensure that your boiler’s SMART sensors are correctly installed and maintained. Their work includes:

  • Heating control installation: A heating engineer can install a new boiler that operates with a heating control or SMART sensor, from lone gas boiler units to full pipework systems.
  • Heating control repair and maintenance: A heating engineer can offer a full service of your heating controls to identify any issues, then perform maintenance tasks to ensure they are working correctly.
  • General boiler diagnostics, assessments and safety Inspections: Heating engineers are qualified to carry out checks and inspections on all the parts of your boiler and central heating system, including SMART controls and thermostats. When a heating engineer comes to perform an installation or undertake boiler maintenance, they can carefully inspect the system and diagnose any issues that require repair.
