This completely depends on the boiler and system that it's being installed into, also the customers budget needs to be taken into account, and any further additions that the customer plans to make, like smart trvs, cameras, doorbells etc etc, I know from personal experience that the nest is the most popular by far, but that doesn't make it the best.

My favourites to install and set up are the Nest and the Wiser Thermostats. Both these options are easy to install, easy to set up and easy to use. They both allow full control of heating system and smart learning. The Wiser also has additional connectable thermostatic radiator valve to fully zone each room for the ideal temperature and performance.

I prefer to recommend a nest stat. It is what I use in my own home. It offers a more attractive appearance than the hive. It also auto monitors movement in the home so it can set to auto away. Lastly it learns the customers behaviours rather than them having to set a schedule although one can be set if the customer wishes

To comply with the latest regulations, new thermostats should be Boiler Plus compliant - all smart thermostats will meet this requirement but each boiler speaks a different language. Adding a smart thermostat to an old boiler with simple 240v on/off switching will not provide energy savings. Smart thermostats should be Opentherm compatible along with the boiler. Using the boiler manufacturer's own controls will provide the best results and modulation - e.g. vSmart on Vaillant boilers as they will speak the same "language"

We personally prefer the Nest thermostat in terms of style, ease of function and will work on all types of systems from one device. It has the ability to support opentherm technology depending on boiler manufacturer. However the best smart thermostat to buy if having a new boiler installed would be the manufacturers smart thermostat, they work seamlessly together and open up another level of efficiency which third party thermostats cant do. Therefore making your boiler more efficient then any other stat on the market.

The best smart thermostat I think is purely a matter of personal opinion. We as standard fit a Hive Smart Thermostat with every installation unless the customer requests differently. They look good, can be controlled with a smart phone from home or abroad. Compared to others are easy to understand and use , they are compatible with other Hive Smart devices such as the home security cameras and lights.They are easy to set up and are available at a fairly reasonable price.

This question is difficult to answer, as there is no suits all recommendation. There are numerous differences among the smart thermostats and which is “best” comes down to what it is paired with and the end user needs. For someone looking for relatively basic feature set, but with option for remote control via a smartphone then Hive is an ok option at its price point. Some boilers are compatible with opentherm which gives the smart controls the ability to modulate the burner based on demand and other external influences (e.g. weather compensation based on outside temperature/forecast). These devices when connected correctly with a compatible boiler offer the best in terms of efficiency improvements. Unfortunately even if a device states that it is compatible with opentherm (which is a communication platform), it doesn’t always mean you will gain the full feature set offered as its implementation is not unified. I recommend that the “Best” thermostat is determined on a case by case basis with a conversation with the end user, identification of what boiler is present and assessing what would be the best suited for the individual circumstances.

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.

It is easily upgradeable with app controlled trv's to specifically control individual rooms and smart plugs to control electrical appliances around the house.

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

At DRB Gas Services I fit Tado smart thermometers and Trv,S. I have one fitted at home and can see the savings over the years its been installed. All my customers have noticed the reduction in fuel costs since fitted. The ability to control from your phone, via Google & Apple makes it very versatile & easy for all ages.

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.

I really like Drayton wiser thermostats. They have the option of controlling 2 heating zones, hot water and with the additional plugs, electrical appliances. Pretty easy to install and use and once installed, can be controlled from your phone. Pretty awesome if you ask me. Please contact Gas-It Heating Ltd if you have any further questions

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.
