Roly and his family moved in to their new home just before Christmas 2015. After receiving high energy bills since moving in, Roly thought it was time to review the control of his heating system.
After researching a range of smart heating controls, Roly decided to invest in a Netatmo Thermostat which would work efficiently with the gas combination boiler. As the boiler ensures there is hot water on demand, the Natatmo Thermostat will look after the single heating zone. The sophisticated system weather compensates though the ‘Auto-Adapt’ function using the home’s insulation and the outdoor temperature to programme when the heat should switch on.
Roly downloaded the Netatmo app on to his tablet and then followed the instructions to set up the thermostat. The relay box which transmits to the wireless thermostat via the home WI-FI was positioned next to the boiler as instructed. The installation was fairly simple, but did require some electrical assistance just to double check everything was okay.
The thermostat comes with five interchangeable colours allowing the family to choose the best colour to suite the décor of the room. From the photo on the right, you can see how neat the thermostat looks in the living room.
A week after installing the thermostat, the app e-mailed Roly letting him know that the system had learnt how the home needed to be heated. Roly has complete confidence in the Netatmo product and is impressed with how quick it learnt.
From the very first day of having the Netatmo Theremostat installed, Roly has had on-line control of his heating system and seen savings:
“Since installing the Netamo thermostat my boiler runs half as often as before and I have reduced my gas bills by approximately 35%. I am pleased with how well the system runs and the amount of control of the system I have from my tablet. The app works really well – the indoor temperature and boiler activity is recorded continuously and I can see my savings. I have full control when needed but I rarely intervene because the thermostat has already done the thinking for me.”
