Smart Thermostats are a new trend that allows control over your heating wirelessly via your smartphone, tablet or computer. They’re a great way to save money on your gas bills – but it all depends on how you use them.
Here at Boiler Plan we stock two different types of Smart thermostats – the Salus RT310i which comes as standard with every boiler install, and the Nest Learning Thermostat for the more advanced user.
The Salus is an affordable and extremely easy to use Smart Thermostat. It comes with a wireless remote, and an app you can download which allows control of the heating when you’re out of the house via your smartphone or tablet.
The thermostat comes with a variety of features such as holiday mode, adjustable frost protection, and the option to set scheduled temperatures to fit around your daily routine.
If you’ve never used or owned a Smart thermostat before, the Salus RT310i is the perfect device to start you off on your journey to smarter living.

For those that integrate digital technology in your daily life then the Nest learning Smart thermostat will be a perfect addition to your home. We offer the Nest thermostat as an optional upgrade during install, and we recommend this product to the more advanced users.
One of the best features the Nest has is its unique AI learning ability. This means the more you use it, the more it learns about you and your heating habits, and as time goes by you’ll have to interact with it less and less – as it will automatically and efficiently heat your home.
Nest understands that life can sometimes get in the way and you’ll be forced to change your daily routine. Be safe in the knowledge that when situations like this arise (as long as you have a smartphone, tablet, or computer handy) you’ll be able to fully control your heating when you’re out and about, thanks to the Nest app.
If you already have Smart home capabilities, the Nest will work in tandem with other smart home kits such as Amazon Alexa, or Google Home – which means you’ll be able to control your heating with just your voice.
Smart thermostats are a rapidly growing market, with new models introduced every year to help save money, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and to stop us from wasting so much energy.
If you still don’t have a Smart thermostat, why not?
