A typical room thermostat just lets you change the temperature in your home using a dial or control panel. So a smart thermostat gives you more efficient, more user-friendly and more accessible control over your home’s heating using three basic components.
The first component plugs directly into your boiler and can wirelessly talk to the second component, the in-home device that is the thermostat and main control.
When the third component is an app that is downloaded to a smartphone (or tablet). Users remotely control the thermostat/main control device via the app, allowing them to adjust their heating from wherever they may be.
This is the basic makeup of most smart thermostats. Some smart thermostats offer more, such as ‘learning’ your schedule by detecting when your smartphone is in the house, or even taking it step further by detecting when you’re on your usual route home, and preparing your home to the desired temperature.
At Ability, we can offer you a full service from a dripping tap to a toilet that will not flush or a boiler that needs a service, from a radiator not getting hot to a ball valve overflowing.
