Temperature controls for home heating systems

Keeping your home toasty warm

An appropriate set of heating controls makes it easy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. They’ll help you to waste less fuel and heat too – keeping your heating bills and CO2 emissions down. The installer will include the installation of heating controls in your quotation.

These will include:

Central heating programmer

  • This controls the times at which the central heating and/or the hot water turns on or off.
  • It also features additional control options including boost and override heating controls.

Thermostatic radiator valves (TRV’s)

  • These are placed on the radiators in rooms making it possible to control the temperature in the room. For instance in rooms which are not used regularly you can turn the heating down low to conserve energy.

Room thermostat

  • Every house should have one room thermostat which is normally placed in the living room or the hall. It responds to the air temperature around it and controls the boiler operations. For example if the temperature is warm enough the thermostat sends a signal to the boiler to stop.

Cylinder thermostat

  • This controls the temperature of your domestic hot water from your cylinder.
  • It allows you to set your own hot water temperature (system boiler only).
