Temperatures around zero have us blasting the heating at this time of year, but overheating your home will make your energy costs spiral. Fortunately, smart heating controls allow you to make sure your home is warm and cosy, while keeping your bills in check. 

Here are five reasons why upgrading to room-to-room heating control is a very smart choice this winter.

1. You can zone your heating

Smart thermostats on every radiator in your home allow you to control each heating zone individually and schedule the heating for each room, based on how you use it. You can keep the living room at a comfortable 20°C throughout the evening, dial down the temperature in the bedroom just before you go to sleep, and make sure the bathroom is warm enough for your morning shower.

2. Supply according to demand

An extended home is likely to have different levels of insulation in old and new areas. This means setting one thermostat temperature for the whole home will lead some rooms to feel too warm, while others are still a little draughty. Smart radiator thermostats give you the freedom to boost certain rooms as needed.

3. Safe control for children's rooms

Controlling the temperature of a baby’s room is very important, but ask any parent and they will admit they aren’t keen to risk waking their little ones to check the heating. A smart-app controlled radiator thermostat lets you set a heating schedule and then monitor the temperature from your mobile phone.

4. Adapt your heating controls over time

Think your family might grow over the next few years? If you find you need to extend for more space, or put an old home office into use as a nursery, it is good to know that you can adapt your heating system accordingly. The latest wireless heating controls can be extended too, so you can add thermostats to any new radiators in new rooms, as required.

5. Use only what you need
