Control your heating system remotely
Perhaps the most significant advantage of smart thermostats is the ability to control them remotely, no matter where you are in the world (provided you have an internet connection).
You can use the dedicated Vaillant app on your smartphone to see what the temperature is inside your home and make changes to the heating schedule.
If you have a loved one that doesn’t have a smart device to control their heating, you can download the app on their behalf to ensure their home is at a comfortable temperature. You will also be alerted if any faults with the heating system were to occur.
This gives you the convenience of being able to leave the heating off until it’s actually required, requesting a heating “boost” on your way home so that energy consumption is reduced, resulting in lower energy bills.
Because you can activate your central heating system anytime and anywhere, you never have to be concerned about heating an empty home.
If your plans change and you’re not returning home at the time you expected, simply open the app and adjust the schedule remotely.
Not wasting energy on heating when you aren’t at home will reduce your overall energy consumption, which has the additional benefit of saving you money on your gas bills.
