Choosing an underfloor thermostat
When choosing your underfloor heating, you also need to consider the right type of thermostat to ensure you are in control of your heating system at all times.
In this quick guide, we highlight the different types of thermostats available, ranging from simple to sophisticated, to help make it easier for you to choose the right thermostat for your home.
The main types of underfloor heating thermostats
Anyone with an older underfloor heating system will be fully conversant with the traditional wall mounted manual system which is controlled manually by turning a dial.
An upgrade on the manual thermostat, wall mounted programmable thermostats allow you to select when you want your underfloor heating to turn on and off as well as the desired temperature.
The next generation of smart programmable thermostats allow you to manage your underfloor heating from an app on your phone. Featuring a large LED touch screen for greater ease of use, they are great for scheduling your heating as well as boosting overall performance, helping to save users energy as well as money.
As an added bonus, they can be connected to smart home hubs such as Amazon Alexa, Google Nest and Apple Homepod to give you complete control of your underfloor heating wherever you are in the country (or the world for that matter) via your smart phone.
Whichever thermostat you select, don’t forget that underfloor heating can take longer than traditional heating systems to heat. So, we would always recommend setting them to come on at least 30 minutes before it’s time to get out of bed in the morning. Your toes will appreciate it!
