Electric underfloor heating systems are perfect to use as primary heating methods in single-room renovations and their quick installation times mean you can feel the luxury of a Warmup system in a matter of hours. Controlling an electric floor heater couldn’t be easier than by using one of our Smart Thermostats.

Will a Warmup UFH controller save me money on my energy bills? 

As we explored earlier, a Smart Thermostat can dramatically improve the energy performance of a heating system which can in turn, help reduce the running costs of your home’s heating.  

Smart controls facilitate zoned heating: this means splitting your property’s heating system into different ‘zones’ in the home – allowing you to heat specific rooms independently to each other. Multi-zone heating dramatically enhances the energy-efficiency of a heating system and will help reduce energy wastage. Want to learn more about the benefits of multi-zone heating? Read our expert blog to discover everything you need to know. 

Warmup’s Smart controls work together with our Smartphone apps to maximise on both the energy-savings and cost-savings offered. Using both the MyHeating app to remotely control your underfloor heating and the AutoSwitch app to find the best energy tariff for your home, could help reduce your energy usage by 25%;  potentially lowering your energy bills by over £400 a year.   

Can I connect a Warmup thermostat with other Smart tech in my home? 

Yes, you can. Our Smart controls can be connected to other Smart devices in a property with ease. Looking to control your heating by voice through your Smart speaker? Warmup controllers are compatible with the Amazon Echo through Amazon’s Alexa app and other voice assistants through the IFTTT platform.
