Smart thermostats let you adjust your Bolton home’s heating simply and easily using your mobile phone or any other remote device. Smart thermostats provide key details into your energy usage patterns, revealing the exact amount of energy it takes to keep your home cosy in winter and cool in summer.


What’s the difference between a regular thermostat & a smart thermostat?

A regular thermostat allows you to adjust the temperature via a control panel on the wall of your home. A smart thermostat gives you opportunity to use the touch-based interface on the device, whilst helping you to control so much more. Not only can you control the temperature of your Bolton home, but with a smart thermostat you’ll control heating from afar, whether you’re in another room, travelling home from work or even in another country.

With great customisation options, a Wi-Fi-enabled smart thermostat learns your household’s habits and preferences over time before developing a schedule for you over a few weeks. Too hot or cold? You can easily adjust your smart thermostat’s schedule to fit your requirements.

Many people adjust the temperature with conventional controls as they become more familiar with the smart thermostat’s app, and this function will reassure you and your Bolton household of continued heating and hot water in case you ever lose connection. Need flexibility in your schedule? You can program the smart thermostat to turn on and off based on your schedule, the weather, and even when you have a certain number of people in your Bolton home.


How will a smart thermostat installed by BHE help your Bolton home save on energy costs?

Heating your home needs energy, and as the cost of living continues to rise, smart thermostats are really beneficial in helping you and your family to save energy costs in your Bolton home.

Based on your set temperature and daily schedule, the smart thermostat ensures that your home is comfortable for when you get home, whilst saving as much energy as possible until then. Smart thermostats have a safety or holiday mode, meaning you’ll save energy when you’re on holiday and only heating your Bolton home if the temperature drops below a safe limit – to stop a potential boiler breakdown or to prevent your pipes from freezing, for example.

Need to see how much energy you’re using? Your smart thermostat will let you track your energy usage, creating a home energy profile that tells you how your energy consumption has changed over time, how that may affect your energy costs, and how you can adjust your heating and cooling preferences to reduce energy costs further.
