Boiler controls make a big difference to your heating system. As our modern condensing boilers operate at peak efficiency, adding energy efficient controls can boost your systems overall performance. The control is the device designed to regulate the fuel, air, water, steam or electrical supply to the controlled equipment, it can be automatic, semi-automatic or manual. As BHL want you to be as comfortable as possible we stock the most well respected controls, the right heating control keeps your home at a pleasant temperature without wasting fuel or heat, and so you’ll spend less on your heating bills and reduce your carbon dioxide emissions. A full set of controls would ideally include a boiler thermostat, a timer or programmer, a room thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves. The timer controls either when the heating comes on or the time the hot water is available. A programmer integrates the control of heating and hot water into one unit giving you two channels so you set timings for both heating and hot water independently. Room thermostats provide temperature control, by sensing the air temperature and adjusting the heating when the air temperature falls below the thermostat setting. Finally, the thermostatic radiator valves are fitted to radiators and are used to control the temperature in the room. They work by automatically opening and closing the flow of hot water into the radiator to keep each room at a desired temperature.

Effective heating controls are a vital part of an efficient boiler powered central heating system. Clever use of controls can help you minimise energy consumption by ensuring each room is at the right temperature for comfort, whilst avoiding overheating which will keep your cosy, because BHL don’t just have cosy prices, we have cosy products. Programmers are a key component of heating control systems in the UK. Since many homes are unoccupied for parts of the day, there is little point in heating them if no one is home, BHL wouldn’t want you to waste money. A programmer allows you to specify when the heating comes on to match your lifestyle and heating requirements.
The thermostat is now also a common fixture in most homes, helping to maintain an even temperature in the house all year round. In the winter, room thermostats prevent rooms from overheating. In the summer months, they ensure the heating system does not fire up unless the temperature of the house falls to a pre-set low level. The thermostat is normally a control unit for central heating boiler that allows you to choose the temperature that you would like the house to be at via a dial or digital display on the thermostat. The thermostat then monitors’ the ambient temperature of the ait and instructs the boiler to turn on or off accordingly.
Weather compensation is a valuable way to improve the efficiency of all heating systems, but is especially useful when ground source heat pump system is installed. Weather compensators use a small outdoor sensor to adjust the system controls to compensate for changes in outdoor temperature automatically. As the weather gets colder the system work harder and produces more heat to your radiators, and as the weather warms up the system reduces the temperature to your radiators. The system runs more consistently feeding energy into the building gradually and efficiently over a longer period of time.
