Heating controls for wet central heating systems and warm air systems allow you to keep your home at a comfortable temperature without wasting fuel or heat – heating controls reduce carbon dioxide emissions and thus lower spend on fuel bills.
What is a Cylinder thermostat?
A cylinder thermostat switches on and off the heat supply from the boiler to the hot-water cylinder. It works by sensing the temperature of the water inside the cylinder, switching on the water heating when the temperature falls below the thermostat setting, and switching it off once this set temperature has been reached.

Benefits of Heating Controls
- timer – turns your boiler on or off at set times
- room thermostat – measures how warm your room is and adjusts the boiler operation accordingly
- programmer – lets you set different times and temperatures for different days of the week
- Thermostatic radiator valves (TVRs) – allow you to adjust the temperature of individual radiators and turn them off completely.
In this modern era, you would expect the heat in homes to be at the right temperature and hot water on demand without the pain of having to wait around. Correct and sufficient heating controls do just that leaving your mind free of forgetting to switch off the heating or hot water.
