What types of heating controls are available?

A traditional and somewhat outdated control is the Dial Thermostat. This is a thermostat that is typically kept in one room and controls the heat in the whole house. Although they are easy to install and easy to use, they are not very efficient.

Another older method of heating control is Time Clocks. Again, by today’s standard these are very outdated. A thermostat allows you to set your desired temperature in one room, which affects the whole house. Push pins on the thermostat allow you to set the time of day that you want to boiler to operate.

Digital Programmers are more common in today’s heating systems and offer a lot more flexibility. They allow you to set a 7-day cycle, which means you can have a different setting for weekends. They do allow you a lot more control, but they the interface can be a little trickier to use.

Very common in modern homes are programmable room thermostats. These allow you to not only set on-off times for each day of the week, but variable temperatures too. They are the most popular heating controls installed in modern heating systems outside of advanced heating controls.

A very popular option with more tech-savvy homeowners are Smart Heating Controls. These thermostats connect to the internet and allow you to control your heating system remotely – Usually via a smartphone app.

Boiler Plus is an advanced heating control that automatically sets the temperature based on a learned schedule of use. It learns your occupancy patterns and how long it takes to heat your house and sets the boiler accordingly.
