In the Coronavirus Pandemic and the disruption it continues to cause, we know many are glad to see the back of 2020. The New Year is finally here and for some it’s about setting goals and maybe some resolutions for the next 12 months. It’s a great opportunity to make both small and significant lifestyle changes, perhaps to benefit your well-being, your bank balance or even the environment.
Did you know you could achieve some of this with smart thermostats and other devices? Here are some resolutions that smart heating systems can help you with, and some ideas to help bring some domestic comfort and control in a post-COVID world.
1. If you don’t yet have smart thermostats, it’s time to future-proof your home!
In building the home of the future, experts agree smart heating is essential when maximising energy efficiency and comfort for decades to come. This makes installing them a great lifestyle and home enhancement, a New Year’s resolution all on its own.
2. Lower your utility bills with Wiser’s enhanced schedule control
If you’re aiming to reduce household expenditure, try reviewing your heating schedules for 2021. Adjusting them to suit your lifestyle when it changes can lower your bills significantly; smart radiator thermostats go even further by allowing you to fine-tune multi-zone schedules, reducing energy use in rooms you use less frequently.
If one of your goals is to become more tech-savvy, a smart thermostat might be perfect for you! For example, use IFTTT to turn your heating off when you leave, or set up voice commands with Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant. You’ll find yourself linking up devices like a natural with Wiser’s intuitive control, and you’ll enjoy the convenience it’ll bring. You can dive into the advanced features, or dip into them one by one, and our tech support online or by phone is there to guide you every step of the way.
3. Go greener (and save money)

4. Make home life easier in 2021
2020 has been a trying year that’s made many of us appreciate home life a bit more. That’s why, next year, any aim to make the home more comfortable should be encouraged. It’s your sanctuary, and technology from smart plugs to multi-zone heating systems can help you gain full control, maximise comfort and save money in the long run for the more important things in life.
