HouseHeat vs TRVS

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 

Thermostatic Radiator Valve (TRV) Problems


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 whereever the thermostat is placed the wireless room thermostat can be placed whereever the person is in the room.

TRVs suffer from sticking pins so they do not work efficiently until you loosen the pin. 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. 

TRVs don't communicate with the boiler. HouseTech have a special boiler box which allows the wireless thermostats to communicate with  the boiler, shutting it down if no radiators are calling for heat.

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 and feed the information back to the boiler if a boiler box is added.

HouseTech's intelligent window sensors can be added to the system. These detect if a window has been opened and they send a wireless signal to turn down the radiator to a level which the user requires, thus not wasting heat to the outside.
