What do smart thermostats do and why do I need one?

What do smart thermostats do and why do I need one?

A smart thermostat lets you create and automate bespoke settings for your home’s heating system using your tablet or smartphone from anywhere in the world.

Smart thermostats can be programmed to react to external weather conditions and you can schedule timings for your heating to come on. They can also run automatically and learn your behaviours and self-programme to know when your heating needs to come on and off.

One of the biggest benefits of a smart thermostat is that they’ll significantly reduce your energy bills and end up paying for themselves over the course of a couple years.

In summary, a smart thermostat will:

  • Let you control your heating system from anywhere in the world on your mobile device
  • Learn your behaviour and automatically adjust your heating system accordingly
  • Save you money on your energy bills

A complete overhaul of my central heating system was done by Scott and Toby who were exemplary in their professionalism, customer service and standard of work completed. I can wholeheartedly recommend Martindales as the standard of work coupled with highly competitive pricing equals no need to look elsewhere. Thank you again Ryan and team.

New boiler installed and pipe work re-routed and now up and running within a couple of days. The guys were prompt, polite, accommodating, and worked hard throughout both days, (and in particular Scott); to ensure everything was completed on schedule. Good work ethics and team culture was recognised throughout. The boiler (a Viessmann Vitoden 100) is a Which? best buy brand, complete with a 10 year warranty, and Ryan and his team are approved installers, so I am looking forward to years of trouble free service! Price for work was competitive and within my budget. Not quite 5 stars due to a few minor points, but will definitely recommend Ryan and his team, to friends and family. Overall a good job done - thanks.

Frequently asked questions

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Reach out to our customer support team.

Can I install a smart thermostat myself?

It’s best to consult a professional to install a smart thermostat. This is because some homes aren’t wired according to smart thermostat specifications.

How does a smart thermostat connect to your boiler?

Most smart thermostat packs come with a hub that connects to your router and the receiver is wired to your boiler, which means your boiler and internet are linked, so you can control your boiler’s setting remotely.

Do smart thermostats require Wifi?

Yes, you will need a WiFi connection to get the most out of your Smart Thermostat as the vast majority of the available features are dependent on it.

Will a smart thermostat work with all boilers?

Smart thermostats will work with most boilers, but it’s always worth double-checking with the manufacturer or a professional before installing.
