Effortless Convenience and Energy Savings: Exploring the Benefits Of Smart Central Heating Systems

When the cold months hit, most of us would be lost without our central heating systems, and they play a vital role in keeping our homes warm and comfortable. With the advent of smart technology, traditional heating systems have evolved, offering homeowners a range of benefits beyond basic temperature control.

One of the biggest perks of these smart central heating systems is that they will help to save energy and cut energy bills down to boost your bank balance during a harsh cost of living crisis.

From remote access and intelligent scheduling to energy optimisation features, these systems offer your home a new level of comfort and efficiency.

Remote Access And Control

One of the most significant benefits of smart central heating systems is the ability to control and monitor your heating system remotely. Normally, if you’d left your heating on by mistake, there was nothing you could do about it until you got back home and could switch it off. Not only is this a waste of energy, but this simple mistake will unnecessarily drive your energy bill up.

If you want to save energy and cut energy bills, a smart central heating system will eliminate the chance of this costly mistake.

With a mobile application like the Wiser Home app, you can adjust temperature settings, turn the heating on or off, or even set up schedules from anywhere using your smartphone. This level of convenience means you can still have a warm and cosy home before you arrive without excessive energy being used to provide it.

Intelligent Scheduling and Zoning

Smart central heating systems provide intelligent scheduling options that adapt to your daily routine, which ultimately save energy and cut down on energy bills.

By programming heating schedules based on your preferred temperature settings for different times of the day, you can save energy by avoiding unnecessary heating when you're away or asleep.

Additionally, systems like Wiser offer multi-zoning capabilities, allowing you to control heating in different areas of your home individually. This feature enables you to prioritise heating in frequently used areas while reducing energy consumption in unused spaces, helping you save energy and cut energy bills.

Energy Monitoring And Savings

Smart central heating systems incorporate various energy monitoring features that help reduce energy consumption and save on utility bills.

By using advanced smart heating features like Wiser’s Insights+, your heating system can build up a picture of your energy use over time, which it can use to give personalised advice to help you save money.

With Wiser it is easy to manage your energy use, predict your spending, and set your own budget. You can also see significant savings with multi-room control, you can save up to 19% on your energy bills. With smart features like Away Mode, Eco Mode and room-to-room control, you can save an additional 16%. On average, Wiser users save up to £575 per year* on their energy bills.

Integration With Smart Home Ecosystems

Smart central heating systems can seamlessly integrate with other smart home devices, creating a cohesive ecosystem that enhances your home’s convenience.

Integration with voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant allows you to control your heating system using simple voice commands, making adjustments even more effortless – in short, you don’t even have to leave your sofa to adjust your heating.

Selecting A Smart Central Heating System

To get the maximum benefit out of your heating system and cut down on energy bills, it’s imperative that you choose the right smart heating system for your home.

It’s important to consider your home’s unique requirements; how big is your home, how many rooms does it have, and do you have any specific heating requirements like underfloor heating?

Your heat source and the boiler type will also influence which heating system to go for. We’ve created a handy product selector to make choosing your smart heating system a breeze. Still in doubt? Simply get in touch with us to chat about your needs.
