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.

Heating Controls - timer, programmer, motorised valve, smart controls, thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs), room thermostats

SPONSORED BY Danfoss

What is a Programmer?

Programmers control the timing of the central heating system and are compatible with most boiler types. Programmers switch heating on and off at pre-set times. This keeps homes more energy efficient. Programmers are compatible with room thermostats and thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs).

How to choose a Programmer?

Programmers range in single-channel or two-channel. A single-channel is for combi boilers and a two-channel for heat only boilers. Programmers are offering 3x different types.

  1. One-day programmer – choose during the day when heating should come on but all week (Mon-Sun) is the same set times.
  2. 5-2 programmer allows 2 patterns, 5 days set to one pattern and 2 days set to a different pattern.
  3. 7-day programmer – most advanced, allowing each day to have its own independent set of heating requirements. New programmers also feature an override button allowing you to give heating a boost.

What is a Room Thermostat?

Room thermostats work by sensing the air temperature in a home and communicating with the central heating system. When temperature dips, the thermostat instructs heating to switch on. Once the room has reached a desired temperature, heating switches off. Thermostats keep heating costs down while home is kept at a comfortable temperature.

How to choose a Room Thermostat?

Room Thermostats range from basic wired dial controls to digital, voice controlled models. Three main styles are;

  • Smart (internet enabled) - controlled via apps while you away from the home,
  • Programmable - preset temperature settings
  • or Manual - basic and does little to save energy so best suited for areas of little use, eg garage.

Be sure to choose the thermostat based on your heating system as some are underfloor or radiator only.

What is a Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV)?

A thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) is a self-regulating valve that is fitted to a radiator on a central heating system. The TRV allows each radiator to be set at a different temperature therefore having some rooms warmer than others. TRV's are normally positioned on the side of a radiator with one per radiator.

How to choose a Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV)?

Standard pipework is 15mm but some homes run the radiators on smaller bore pipe, check the size of your pipework for the thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) to be fitted. Again standard homes have copper pipework but if your home is on plastic you do need to check if a brand of TRV can be fitted or if you need to first fit some copper pipe for the TRV. Different brands offer features that range from fully reversible meaning TRV's can be fitted on either the flow or return and perfect for horizontal or vertical installation. If you are after lockshields as well, some TRV's come in a combo pack with the lockshield valve. Modern TRV's have a liquid sensor which is more effective than wax and may feature a frost protection.

What is a Motorised Valve?

Motorised heating valves are designed to control the flow of water between the central heating system and hot water system depending on the demand. They are electronic controlled valves.

How to choose a Motorised Valve?

Check the size of your pipe work to determine if you need a 22mm or a 28mm diameter motorised valve. Check your central heating system as motorised valves are in both configurations of 2 or 3 port. 3 port motorised valves are either a diverter valve or a more commonly found in central heating systems is a mid-position valve which not only allows flow one way or another but also simultaneously to both hot water and radiators.

What is a Smart Control?

Smart Central Heating Controls work via Wifi allowing you to control your home from a Wifi enabled device such as a tablet or smartphone without you needing to be present. They are clever enough to learn the central heating routine - how long the central heating system takes to warm up a room including when heating is usually asked for in each room.

How to choose a Smart Control?

Decide between a multi room control where you can set different rooms to their own unique temperature settings or a whole-home thermostat which controls all of the radiators together as one unit and is easier to install. Depending on how confident you are for DIY if you are just replacing an existing thermostat, some smart controls come with self-installation for easy do it yourself set-up. Invest in a thermostat that can detect your location via your phone to switch off heating when you are away from home. Some systems have motion sensors that detect movement in the home and keeping heat on when bodies are detected despite the primary user being away from the property.
