If you would like to know whether remote a thermostat installation will save you money, the answer is yes, it could. It’s something you should explore. With the cost of living constantly on the rise and all of the current uncertainty about Brexit, rising costs are likely to accelerate.
So, if you are looking to reduce your outgoings, having a remote thermostat to control your heating may be a good way of keeping your heating bills low. It would also be good for the environment too.
Ecobee or Nest?
There are several so-called “smart thermostats” on the market here in the UK today including Ecobee and Nest. Ecobee claim that their devices can save an average of 23% as regards heating and cooling bills. Nest split their claims down saying they can save 10-12% on heating bills and 15% of cooling bills.
You do, however, need to be a little bit careful with manufacturers’ claims. Remember that they are out to sell their products in the first place. It means that the information they advertise is slanted in their favour. According to “Which,” the savings the makers profess assume you leave your heating on most of the time. This may or may not be the case.
If you are considering going for a remote thermostat installation, Ecobee and Nest are probably the two you will want to check out. There are other systems, but these two are prominent in the UK. There are however more Nest installations than Ecobee. According to the Gadgescentral.co.uk website, the Nest third generation remote thermostat is the best option.
Will a remote thermostat installation work with your heating system?
Remote thermostat installation is becoming more popular. However, as the technology is relatively new, many people are unaware of the compatibility requirements. For example, if you have an older style HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning) system installed, a remote thermostat may not work.
