Temperature control in a heating system is one of the most important sections for said system to be as energy efficient as possible, basing its operation on intelligent thermal regulation. First of all, we must clearly define how we can manage our heating system. For this we have some small devices called thermostats whose basic function is to keep the system on only when it is really necessary, depending on the ambient temperature.
These devices affect two key temperatures:
- inertia temperature: minimum temperature in the house.
- Comfort temperature: the one that the home must reach so that its inhabitants are comfortable.
In this article we will analyze the options available in the market…
types of thermostats
These manual wheel thermostats turn the heating on and off to keep the set temperature constant. Its temperature reading is unreliable and it has been some time since they have fallen out of use in the market.
They are more efficient and precise than the previous ones. They have a digital LCD liquid crystal display where we can see the temperature of the room and the temperature that we really want.
Also called chronothermostats. They are smart, digital and programmable thermostats. With them you can program the heating on and off throughout the week with multiple time slots, at the time you want, reducing consumption and avoiding energy waste.
Smart timer thermostats with Wi-Fi
We arrive at star in thermal regulation. With its technology they can turn on, turn off, manage and program the heating remotely through a Smartphone or tablet.
They have a built-in sensor that controls the temperature of the pavement so that it does not exceed the established limits. They are convenient to program, with precise and accurate thermal reading reliability in real time. They have a backlit screen and time reserve in the event of a specific power outage.
Being its individual installation in each heated area, this allows us perfect control of our radiant heating, which results in a high energy efficiency of the heating system.
