The right heating controls will let you keep your home at a comfortable
temperature without wasting fuel or heat – so you’ll reduce your carbon dioxide
emissions and spend less on heating bills.

If your home is heated by a central heating boiler, whether it is
natural gas or LPG,  your full set of controls should ideally include a boiler
thermostat, a timer or programmer for heating and hot water, a room thermostat, hot water cylinder thermostat and thermostatic radiator
valves (TRVs).

How much could you save

Whatever the age of your boiler, the right controls will let you set your
heating and hot water to come on and off when you need them, heat just the areas
of your home you want, and decide how warm you want each area to be. Here are
the average savings you could make in a typical three-bedroom semi-detached
home, heated by gas:

  • Install a room thermostat if you didn’t have one before: £70 and 280kg
    carbon dioxide a year
  • Fit a hot water tank thermostat: £30 and 130kg carbon dioxide a
  • Fit a hot water tank insulation jacket: £40 and 170kg carbon dioxide a

You can also make savings by using your controls more effectively:

  • Turn down your room thermostat by one degree: save around £55 and
    230kg carbon dioxide a year.

You can upgrade or install heating controls without replacing your boiler,
and it’s a particularly good idea to think about this if your controls are over
12 years old. Room thermostats, for example, are much more accurate than they
used to be.
