We’ve have spent the last few months finding out how British Gas’s new technology can save energy and money. We had the British Gas new digital thermostat installed.
The thermostat works via wireless technology, meaning that I can control my heating using the British Gas myhome app on my smartphone, which has really had unexpected benefits. It was great being able to check the temperature of my house while I was on holiday recently – it was a bit chilly as we were coming home, so I turned the heating on via my phone while we were driving back. I’ve also been able to turn the heating off if the sun’s come out unexpectedly.
In terms of interface, of course, this is fairly simple; drag a slider to move your heating programme from on to off to automatic. Much more sophisticated options are available via the website. To can adjust the temperature with a simple slider.
