Zoned Heating

We have worked on different heating systems to make them smart. It doesnt matter if you have a combi-boiler or a system boiler and a water tank. We can make either of these systems smart and save money and energy.

We provide simple heating solutions eg a single thermostat that is in one location - typically in a hallway, to more advanced solutions where we can control indiviual rooms!

We can also created different modes and have timings and temps set depending on what mode we are in, what season we are in, even set it to what month we are in. The possibilities are many.

Examples include:
 
  • Hive Thermosat
  • Nest Thermostat
  • Z-Wave Thermostats
  • Z-Wave TRV Valves


Below are a couple of completed works we have done:

Simple Heating
 
We replaced an existing non-smart thermostat to a smart thermostat. This meant that the heating system can then be scheduled to run at the times we specify and temperature set to the clients requirements.

We then programmed the system for weekdays and separate for weekends. We then created a holiday schedule so when the clients went away the heating came on as frost protection only and therefore not wasting energy by heating up an empty house.

 
Multi-Zonal Heating System
 
Our client has 2 zones of heating, ie upstairs and downstairs. We replaced them with Nest thermostats. The client also wanted to control the indiviual rooms as not all rooms are occupied all of the time. So we added in Z-Wave TRV to all the room radiators.

We then created simple Virtual Thermostats for each room so that the temp can be set for the rooms indivually. The code also accounted for any movement in the room with the already installed multi-sensors, (these measure temperature and motion), so combining all of these we created a heating system which only heated the rooms that actually needed heating!

This has saved both money and energy by only heating required rooms. The minimum temp set also allowed us to provide frost protection.
