The below explains the problems with conventional TRVs and the benefits of our system over TRVs. Please visit our homepage for a simple video and our web shop.
HouseHeat v (Useless) TRVs LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCES
There is not one reason to continue using TRVs over HouseHeat. Savings have been over 40% when replacing TRVs with our system. Payback is less than 2 years.
The user has to remember to turn radiators up when entering a room and down again when leaving. This is not always possible as they often inaccessible.
HouseHeat will automatically do this.
TRVs are inaccurate as they measure the temperature at the radiator. Househeat measures temperature where ever the thermostat is placed in the room.
TRVs suffer from sticking pins so water does not flow through the radiator. Househeat automatically cleans the pin at 11am on Saturday.
TRVs let all water in at once meaning the radiator has overheated. HouseHeat sends out a signal every two minutes and will modulate the heating by opening the valve in increments meaning no overheating.
A normal house in the UK will rely on a thermostat positioned in the hall/lounge which dictates temperature for the whole house. HouseHeat has thermostats in individual rooms which allow programming of individual radiators for time and temperature.
