UK cities embracing Smart Thermostats & eco upgrades

UK cities are rapidly embracing eco-friendly home upgrades, including Smart Thermostat Installation, as demand for green technology continues to increase.

Why are Smart Thermostats in demand?

Smart Thermostats have been Growing in Popularity for Some Time Now, with an expected annual growth rate of 20.5% globally. This is largely down to changing attitudes on environmentalism and a desire from many to Save Energy and Reduce Household Bills. Moreover, encouragement by Governments has also helped, with initiatives such as the Green Homes Grant Scheme helping push energy-efficient home upgrades.
