Modern heat pump systems are supplied with modern controls, so that you can set up your heating and hot water exactly as you need them – to make sure that the house is warm when you’re getting up, and that there’s plenty of hot water for showers and baths when you need it.
It’s also possible to have smart controls, with wireless connectivity and a smartphone app. This means that you will be able to control your heating very accurately, using a recommended ‘set back’ temperature for optimum efficiency. Smart controls can be used to schedule times when the system will be in setback mode (for example when you’re out at work or at night-time). Scheduling of controls should be considered at design stage as your installer will be able to offer the best advice and help you set up your controls.
