Advice on radiator thermostats

With a radiator thermostat, you can control the temperature per heating element. This saves you energy and heating costs. In addition, a radiator thermostat is suitable for district heating. In this article, we'll explain what a radiator thermostat is. We'll also tell you what to look out for when buying a radiator thermostat.

What is a radiator thermostat?

With a radiator thermostat, you can control the temperature directly on the thermostat. This thermostat valve continuously measures the temperature in the room. As a result, less or no hot water enters the radiator if it's warm enough. Did the temperature drop? The radiator button will let more hot water through. That way, you can save up to 15% on your heating costs.

What can a smart radiator thermostat do?

Smart radiator thermostat

Provide your radiators with smart radiator thermostats and determine the temperature of your house remotely. You can control smart thermostat buttons with an app. Make sure they switch on automatically when you get home or at a different time. This way, it will never be too warm in your living room or bedroom. On top of that, you can make sure your bedroom is warm in the morning. At the same time, the spare bedroom will stay cold. That way, you can save even more energy.

Where do I place a radiator thermostat?

Radiator thermostat

You can place a radiator thermostat in spaces such as the bedroom, bathroom, or attic. The living room, where the central thermostat usually is, doesn't need an extra radio thermostat, since the temperature in this space stays at the same level thanks to the central thermostat.

District heating and thermostat valves

District heating

With block and district heating, you can't control the radiators via your own central boiler. In most cases, you don't have a central thermostat but a thermostat valve. Do you want to make this smart? A smart radiator thermostat is the solution. You can also operate your district heating remotely and let it learn from your habits.
