Boiler and Heating Controls

Your boiler can account for approximately 55% of your annual energy bill. This is because most boilers operate at a low efficiency, making your heating bills significantly higher than they need to be. Installing central heating controls and a high efficient boiler could cut your fuel bills by a quarter. A typical boiler replacement and heating controls upgrade takes less than 1 day and can save you as much as €150 per annum.

Heating controls also have an important part to play when it comes to managing fuel consumption. Newer heating controls have a number of functions including a pre-set schedule option which will help you easily and efficiently manage your fuel consumption. It is recommended that a thermostatic valve is fitted on each radiator in the property in order to ensure each radiator maintains a constant temperature.
Do I need heating controls?
  1. Can you set your boiler to turn on/off on different days of the week using a time control setting?
  2. Does your hot water cylinder have a separate set of temperature and time controls?
  3. Can you heat your domestic hot water without having to switch on your immersion or radiators?
  4. Can you use your heating without heating your domestic hot water too?
  5. Can you adjust the heat output from radiators in the each individual room?
  6. Does your boiler have temperature control?

If you have answered no to the majority of the above questions, then you would greatly benefit from the installation of heating controls.

What are the advantages?

The 4 main advantages of a boiler and heating control upgrade are:
  1. It will make your home more comfortable
  2. It will reduce your heating costs, thus saving you money
  3. It will improve your boiler’s reliability and safety
  4. A high efficiency boiler and heating controls upgrade will lead to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
