Programmers and Controls

Imagine a household heating system that provides piping hot water all day long, even though the house itself is empty while everyone is out at work or school. This would be a wasteful system because it expends energy producing hot water that is not required. An effective heating system should supply heating and hot water only at appropriate times of the day. Central heating programmers and controls help to do this by regulating the times at which heating and hot water are produced.

It is important for a heating system to use a good quality programmer. At Home Heating, we often install central heating programmers and controls produced by ACL Drayton. Drayton is an established manufacturer, and it has a reputation for high quality, reliable products. Its programmers and controls have a number of useful features. For example, a Drayton control can run twice daily ‘on’ phases, with heating and hot water activated at different times. Drayton controllers are also flexible, enabling users to create a heating schedule based on a daily, weekly or weekday/weekend cycle.

Wireless Thermostats

Wireless thermostats are a new type of product that can offer benefits over conventional thermostats. For instance, wireless systems do not require wired cables and this may mean less disruption during installation.

Intelligent Programmable Thermostats

Combining the features of a programmer and thermostat, a programmable thermostat can help heating systems run more efficiently. A programmable thermostat user can set the time at which heating is switched on and also set the temperature to which a room should be heated.

Programmers and controls are just one component in a heating system. Other components such as thermostatic radiator valves also help to regulate temperature and help to create a heating system that reduces unnecessary usage and promotes energy conservation.
