Improving Your Home With Smart Controls

All Posts

It’s safe to say that life in the 21st century is inundated with new technology. Moreover, much of this new tech has a sharp focus on sustainability, environmental conscience and economic savings. Although this technology has not quite taken over yet, it is safe to say that consumers and manufacturers alike are making a real effort to reduce their carbon emissions and tackle the rising cost of living.

One effective means of doing this is through the implementation of smart controls within homes. Working alongside heating systems and efficient insulation, smart controls are a reliable means of keeping track of energy use, in turn reducing spending and cutting down on your home’s carbon footprint.

Here is our guide to these great pieces of technology.

What are smart controls?

Essentially, smart controls are a means of wirelessly controlling and monitoring your home’s heating, from anywhere on the planet. Here at UK Energy Management, we are pleased to help UK homeowners gain access to eco grants and installations of Wiser smart controls, allowing those on lower incomes to improve the efficiency of their home.

Via the installation of smart controls and thermostats in homes, individuals can control the temperature of individual rooms, set timers and adjust underfloor heating, all from an app.

How can They Help?

Opting to install smart controls in your home or property is beneficial for many reasons. Not only can it save you a considerable amount of money, it will also help to reduce wasted energy and lower your carbon footprint.

Smart heating controls allow homeowners to heat individual rooms and spaces as and when they need to. A Wiser smart control system, coupled with efficient insulation and heating is a guaranteed means of improving efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.

Free Heating Grants

What’s more, all of the aforementioned points, from smart controls to insulation, are available for free to eligible UK homeowners. Under the UK government’s new ECO4 scheme, low-income and energy-inefficient households are entitled to free survey and installation of a number of heating and insulation products.

Though it sounds too good to be true, this scheme is a step in the right direction to tackling the rising cost of living, fuel poverty and climate change. Visit our website to check if you are eligible for free home upgrades.
