The Newest Central Heating Technologies
The smart technology revolution is changing every aspect of our lives for the better and the central heating industry is no different. Leading manufacturers such as Nest, Hive, Honeywell and Drayton have worked hard to bring innovations to market that are compatible with the latest smart home technologies from the likes of Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
H2 Property Services is at the ready with qualified engineers who are capable of installing and demonstrating smart central heating technologies. So, let’s see why your next property upgrade should include a smart heating device of one kind or another.
Homes with smart thermostats get two key benefits from an intelligent heating system. Firstly, you can control your heating remotely – from anywhere in the world. If you’re on your way home after work and want to step into a warm house with water enough to fill the bath, then you can boost the heating using your phone. If you are on holiday and want to check you’ve turned the system onto low power mode, you can do that, too.
Secondly, a smart thermostat will ‘learn’ your heating habits and adapt its heating patterns to suit when you are home and when you are not. This way – British Gas claims – you can save up to £150 a year on heating bills.

Smart Monitoring Device
A quick and effective warning during emergencies can make all the difference. It may not be the most fun smart technology available but it’s an essential in the modern home and compliments smart heating technologies perfectly. A smart monitor will alert you to high levels of carbon monoxide and natural gas in your home, as well as replacing your current smoke detector. Not only that, smart detectors are able to send you a push notification if the alarm sounds while you are out of the home, so you can muster a speedy reaction to any alarm at any time.

Automatic Radiator Bleed Valves
If you’ve ever had to bleed your radiators, then you’ll know it can be a messy job. Older radiators in particular are not designed to make bleeding a simple task. One clever addition to the radiators in your home is an automatic bleed valve. This will expel any air from the system, ensuring that the radiators are topped up with hot water and only hot water. They are inexpensive and have been around for a while now, but you’d be hard pressed to find them in many UK homes.
