Time To Get SMART!

An overview of SMART technology by Mekkmaster Heating

What with everything smart these days:

Tv’s, fridges and even cookers! it seems only inevitable that the concept of controlling your heating from your phone, would actually become a reality, and a good one at that. Several factors have led to this surge in demand as more people are spending more time at home, especially throughout Covid, which has led them to spend more time improving their living environment.

Although there is a fear that this may be just another gimmick or fad that will quickly fade away, we feel this is the way forward.

Smart thermostats can reduce heating bills by 32%

This is something to think about, Boilers providing heating and hot water account for nearly 80% of all energy consumption in the home which leads to soaring bills and a higher carbon footprint.

With all this talk in the news about the pending huge rise in energy bills looming over us like doomsday, it’s no wonder that people are seeking alternative ways to save money. By simply adding to your home, upgrades like advanced room thermostats and thermostatic radiator controls these can reduce heating bills by 32%. As smart heating systems are compatible with many boilers and also heat pumps, which I’ll list below, it makes for a seamless transition.

Differences between traditional V smart thermostats.

Traditional thermostats deliver basic functions such as: turning heating on/off, timers and temperature controls. However, Smart thermostats allow the user to have complete management of the heating schedule that they wish from their smartphone or tablets, while they are at home or even away in another country.   You can have complete access and control from anywhere. Multi zone heating is going to be a fixed feature in homes for the future. This concept is great! It allows individual rooms or zones to be heated to a specific temperature at a specific time of day, which means you’re not wasting money or energy.

What you need to know

Though it is quite daunting, using all this technology to control our everyday basic essentials. The internet of things continues to grow, connecting everything our homes and so must we. Smart systems provide much better efficiency and they take the strain and pressure off the c heating system. Also, many thermostats actually give clear information of the current status of the system, which is peace of mind really as it picks up any potential issues so they can be diagnosed before becoming serious.
