Central heating is usually controlled by a thermostat and the boiler working in conjunction with one another. It can be put onto a timer to work around your day and your needs. However, there is now another option – controlling your heating from your phone.
If you have a smart thermostat installed, you will be able to switch your heating on and off, and control the temperature, via you mobile phone. It is usually quite cheap, or even free, to have one of these thermostats installed, as energy companies want to promote them.
What are the benefits? The main one is the flexibility it gives you. This is the perfect option if you work shifts or irregular hours, so you may be at home at different times each day. They’re also good for busy people, or if different people within the same household prefer different temperatures when they are setting the heating.
