About this deal

You set the temperature in degrees celsius This is easier to use and more intuitive than the 0-5 scale on TRVs.

The price doesn't include installation, so it's worth getting some quotes in before making your purchasing decision. You can adjust the size of the radius around your home, with those living in more rural areas ideally wanting a larger radius, while those in towns and cities are best off using a smaller radius to ensure you’re not triggering the heating when you’re out shopping.And figuring out the temperatures that different rooms needed to be at to feel comfortable was something of an issue for the first few days. It’s definitely a more labor-intensive process to figure out the heating requirements of each room and the schedules, and we didn’t get it right for the first few days, leading to some cold evenings and hot nights.

Unlike some others, it also doesn't learn patterns of usage, or provide you details on how much energy you’ve used/saved. We liked If you have a small home, this should not be an issue, but if you have a larger home you’ll want to ensure the system can expand enough and keep the cost in mind too as it can soon mount up, especially for the systems that require a thermostat in every room as well as the valves.

ENERGY SAVINGS CALCULATOR

This was something of a revelation when we got it to work. The apartment we were testing the Evohome in is one of those properties where every room is a different temperature, and what this means is that we always heat to the right level for the living room, but then go through to a cold bedroom. Not so with the Evohome – it was the first time since we moved in that the bedroom had been warmer than the living room. Ultimately, it depends what you want smart heating for to decide if it's worth getting. Smart radiator valves offer high levels of control, but that doesn't suit everyone. Smart radiator valve pros It’s useful to have voice control, especially if your hands are full, your phone isn't available, or the thermostat is in a different room. Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRV’s) are found on individual radiators and can be used to adjust the temperature of each radiator. If you’re wondering what a smart radiator valve is (also known as a smart TRV), it’s the connected equivalent that allows the radiator settings to be controlled from a central app. This is useful for two reasons: Setting the TRV to “4” or “5 means that the radiator will turn on much more frequently than a setting of “1” or “2”.

We were blown away by how simple the Honeywell Evohome was to set up and use. The app is brilliantly designed, and all of the features are genuinely useful. It doesn’t feel like there’s anything superfluous about the kit or the app. If you have a regular schedule, you may well benefit from being able to program a heating schedule. Smart TRV’s do not work with electric radiators (use smart plugs or get a smart electric heater instead) The Radbot looks like a standard TRV, and has a simple control dial that moves from 1 to 5 – these numbers correspond to a room temperature of between 15ºC and 24ºC. It would have been easier if Vestemi had put the temperatures on the dial, to be honest. But that’s our only criticism; otherwise, Radbots are brilliant. Like what is being offered by Netatmo, an evohome wireless radiator also supports smart assistants such as Google Home, Apple HomeKit, Alexa, and more. On top of that, the functionalities can be extended thanks to IFTTT compatibility.The boiler branded heating controls are quite expensive, although the Worcester Easy comes with upto 10 years of manufacturer’s guarantee when fitted with a compatible Worcester boiler Unlike a smart thermostat, you can install a SRV without needing the help of a professional. In most cases, you simply: The Honeywell Evohome allows you to set schedules for each individual thermostat, so if you know that your bedroom is only used at night, you can set it to be cold during the day, heat up half an hour before you head to bed, and then cool down to your preferred sleeping temperature through the night.
