At Midland Gas Ltd we are nest and tado approved installers and think both are great devises, with the IOT ( internet of things ) these can also be integrated with other smart home appliances like Alexa, Apple HomeKit etc We have installed over 50 smart heating controls over the past 12 months and have been given excellent feedback from customers who decided to go down the Smart Route

As I have 13 radiators on the 1st zone with a room thermostat, 2 Under Floor Heating circuits on overlay on the 2nd zone with a room thermostat & 3 UFH circuits in screed on the 3rd zone with 3 thermostats, I am limited a little as to the controls I can have & I strongly believe this is true of every household. The controls have to suit the system & also the person living there..... No point putting a smart controller in a house where they don't have WiFi or any experience with technology for example, they just won't understand how to use it & will always have problems!! I have installed lots of smart controllers over the years & they are all the same in my opinion in respect that they work over the internet but so different in operation. The Nest learning thermostat does wot it says with all the sensors in it for heat, light, movement etc it learns when you are in or not as well as having GPS capabilities so is probably the best 'smart' thinking thermostat & also has open therm capabilities. Atag One Controller & Honeywell T6 Lyric have Open Therm too for example. Then there are simple on/off controllers like Netatmo, Tado or Hive for example. I have a Heat Miser system in my house & it does wot we need it to do on a combi boiler. Smart thermostat really means they can work on the internet & can be controlled off a phone or with an Alexa, Google Home or IFTTT for example not that it is actually smart.....

Among the great choices on offer in the smart thermostat world there are a few that stand out. Nest, Honeywell T6, Tado are all very good offerings and are my preferred to install. They have the best technology in the smart thermostat world to enable your boiler to attempt to heat your house more efficiently.

I’ve installed several nest units and have had little problems with them. I currently use Tado° in my own house and that works perfectly. My parents have a WB boiler so use WB own smart thermostat.

Personally I’d recommend Nest, wired through OpenTherm makes it a class VI thermostat with savings of around 4% on consumption alone. That being said, The easiest Smart Thermostat to install and use is probably Hive, as it has a standardised backplate and the easiest to retrofit to an existing boiler.

There’s a magnificent choice of smart thermostats to connect to your heating nowadays, the most popular being Hive and Nest. Having installed a plethora of these manufacturers, both offer a fantastic back up service if things don’t go to plan. In my experience I’ve found the Nest to be the most user friendly, easiest to use and most reliable. To the point that I have a Nest in my own property, connected to cameras, video doorbell and smoke alarms.

Nest are probably the best thermostat on the market at the moment (tado shouldn’t be ruled out) but my go to choice for customers are the EPH controls. EPH have been developing their products so they are user friendly and are kept at a great price. When pricing our jobs we do a price with EPH and give an option to upgrade. This way the customer really gets to choose

For build quality and options it’s really good. Everyone would be impressed and pleased with this one. Honeywell T6 is easier to use but does not have the wow factor of the Nest. The other options are the Honeywell single thermostat which is just mounted on the wall and simple to use though your phone. The Hive is a simple thermostat is nice in that it can be free standing.

We at Plumb Gas And Heat Ltd believe the Worcester Easy Smart Control is the the best Phone App operated control. As it has features to add on worcester's own smart Thermostatic Radiator Values and control them from there smart App control, and if you fit it the same time with any Worcester boiler you will get the length of the boiler guarantee on the smart control as well. So it's a win win situation.

Here at j smith and sons feel the nest is probably the best smart control on the market especially with its many features and ease of control. But when we fit Worcester’s we have moved to there easy control system which can now control thermostatic valves individually which I feel is a good feature

my personal preference is the nest 3rd generation stat which is ideal for all age groups due to its capabilities to program itself & is suitable for combi & non combi systems, it's also a big hit with the elderly customers where they are used to the old dial stats & friends & relatives can use the app on there behalf if required it's a win win all round.

I recommend the Drayton Wiser smart thermostat for customers who want an easy to use comprehensive unit with an intuitive app. It is a good looking unit with a controller which would replace your existing programmer/timer and wireless room thermostats so doesn't need a great deal of rewiring. It is easily upgradeable with app controlled trv's to specifically control individual rooms and smart plugs to control electrical appliances around the house. It's also one of the cheaper units especially if your house has 2 separate heating zones. They are British built and as a Wiser approved installer I can offer a 5yr guarantee.

Honeywell lyric t6, its smart easy to use and easy to set up and it does what it says on the tin, its available as a wired version to replace an existing stat or rf version that you can place anywhere. I had a nest and had no end of issues with it, and when I connected it to Alexa it totally gave up and refused to communicate with anything.

Personally I would pick the Nest thermostat. It is easy for the user to set up and use. The green leaf feature shows when the users are saving energy. There is a sleek look to the nest as well which is pleasing to the eye. When set up correctly on certain boilers the nest can make a central heating system super efficient.

For me the Nest thermostat wins this one. It’s easy for the customer to manage & program there own settings without the need for a full day’s training on how to heat your house. Couple it with Alexa etc and you have a pretty neat selling gimmick that customers seem to enjoy as well as it’s speak design it wins hands down

The best smart thermostat currently is the Nest. Not only does it look and feel quality but the app & thermostat are easy to use. It is has Open Therm which helps improve efficiency and works brilliantly with certain boilers (Baxi 600).Allowing you to control not only the heating but also water temperatures through the Nest. If that’s not enough it also has the learning function to better understand your homes requirements making it a more comfortable place to be.

Nest is the market leader and my favourite. They are easy to install, customer friendly and the app is easy to navigate. Customers rave about how easy it is to use and that keeps me installing them. I’ve not had a bad experience with them at all. Their technical back up and support is also very good.

NEST thermostat is currently our preferred smart stat. It looks modern, is easy to use and learns to work to suit your needs. We install many thermostats and nest appears to be the most popular. It receives positive feed for its reliability and its simplicity. We have no hesitation in recommending this to our customers.

Nest is definitely the most simple to use heating controler. If your boiler has OpenTherm technology then the Nest controls will be the most effecient heating control. Unfortunately Worcester boilers do not support OpenTherm technology. In order to get the most out of your Worcester boiler effeciency wise, you must fit Worcester controls. The bad news for Worcester boiler owners is that the Worcester controls are more expensive and not as easy to use as the Nest.

We believe at Louis Gas & heating that the nest 3rd generation learning thermostat is the best smart thermostat on the market. Easy to install on all boilers and a great quality and feel of the product you know that it's well made. Also the thermostat is very aesthetically appealing. With smart features and easy to use app and the option to add smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and home security we highly recommend the nest thermostat.
