Heating controls are wonderful gadgets and they are a major part of a modern heating/boiler system. They make life more convenient and they also reduce energy bills. Illustrious Chester can recommend a range of controls accessories that will ensure that your new boiler system is as efficient as possible.
Being able to manage heating and hot water from a smart control and app is a huge perk. You can respond to the ever-changing weather, ensuring that you never have to come home to a house that is too hot or too cold. Controls accessories allow you to manage your central heating system accurately. From the upgrading of an old heating programmer to one with an inbuilt thermostat or using wireless radio frequency to program and zone room thermostats, we can offer a range of options.
Chester plumber is committed to advising you on the best options available for your needs and budget before providing a professional and fuss free installation.
Smart, or intelligent, controls track your heating system. They record your system’s habits, use live weather data and also monitor your energy usage. You can then use an app on your smart device to access all of this information, which means you can run your system in a convenient and cost effective way.
One product that has received many accolades is Hive Active Heating, which is manufactured by British Gas. It communicates with other Hive devices in your home, allowing you to manage your heating remotely using an app. This means that you will always come home to a warm house without ever having to heat an empty one when your plans have changed.
Another popular product is the Nest Thermostat. Since its introduction to the market in 2011, it’s saved over 8 billion kWh of energy in millions of homes. It learns about your daily routines and then adapts to suit your needs.
Speak to Illustrious Chester today for advice on the range of smart controls available and we can select and install the best option for your budget and needs.
Due to the fact that they need to cater for a higher demand of hot water, system and regular boilers need a hot water cylinder as part of the system. Once water has been pumped through the central heating system, the hot water cylinder uses heat exchange coils to heat and store water until it is required.
Your local Chester plumber will always seek to find the most cost effective option for you. We have an extensive knowledge of more traditional cylinders, so if it is possible to use them efficiently, then we will proceed with this more cost effective option. However, if the integrity of your cylinder is compromised due poor insulation or lime scale, then we would advise replacing it. Whilst the initial cost of the installation will be higher, you will save money on energy bills and maintenance costs in the long term.
If you want to ensure the longevity of your newly installed heating system, then we recommend installing a system filter. When this accessory is fitted to your boiler’s pipework, it collects deposits from the water being pumped around the central heating system. This simple installation prevents radiator blockages and it is easy to maintain, ensuring that you get the best out of your system, for a longer period of time.
