How to Add a Smart Heating System to a New Build Property

Whether you have built a new home from scratch to your own exacting design or purchased a new build property from a larger-scale housing developer, it can be an exciting experience. 

There are usually lots of decisions to be made, and it can be easy to overlook some minor details that can make a big difference in improving the quality of your daily life; one of the biggest details you should consider is your new build heating system. 

While traditional systems have been the norm for years, smart heating systems are becoming more popular; with extra measures being taken to combat overheating, smart systems may soon become the standard for new home heating.

What Is Smart Heating?

Smart systems are more efficient than traditional systems; having a smart heating system as your new build heating would save money and make your home more sustainable. From room-to-room control of your heating to daily heating schedules, using smart heating in your new build will help you save energy and keep your home at a comfortable temperature, day or night. 

The Benefits Of Smart Heating 

There are several benefits to adding smart heating to your new build home before or as you move in, including:

  • Energy efficiency: new build smart heating is more energy-efficient than a traditional heating system as it can adjust the temperature based on your daily routine or occupied rooms. This approach to heating your home can reduce your energy consumption and lower your utility bills.

  • Convenience: new build smart heating systems are more convenient than traditional systems as they allow you to control the temperature from your smartphone, even when you’re not at home. 

  • Simple to use: new build smart heating interfaces and apps like the Wiser Home app are user-friendly and intuitive.

  • Straightforward to install: smart heating systems for new builds tend to have a similar installation process to traditional new build heating systems, meaning you or your housing developer can easily arrange for a smart system to be installed.

 

How Much Does A New Build Smart Heating System Cost?

Short answer – probably not as much as you think!

Whilst smart heating is slightly more expensive to install than a traditional system, the money you will save in the long run will ensure the system pays for itself and then some. By reducing your energy consumption, you will lower your bills and recoup the cost of the system over time, all while doing your bit for the planet.  

The initial cost of a smart heating system will depend on several factors, including how big your house is and your chosen features.

The Future Of New Home Heating

As more and more technology is created and released, and building regulations change to encourage a more energy-efficient home, new build smart heating is likely to become the norm. Having a smart heating system installed in your new build home before you move in means that you can stay one step ahead and save the inconvenience of changing your system further down the line.

The fast you install, the faster you begin to save.
