The most effective, energy efficient and money saving method of running your heating system would be to install a ‘Multi Zoned System’ with ‘Individual room control’. This would also give you individual room temperature control to suit individual needs.
Each room would have its own thermostat controlling a dedicated radiator valve, providing your current heating system is operational- for an average 4 bedroom house prices start at £2013 inc vat.
This type of System according to ‘OFGEM’ makes twice the running cost saving compared to other single thermostatically controlled Smart Systems.
