Has anyone replaced their thermostat with a smart, wifi-connected one? I’m looking at doing that, so up for any tips or things to watch out for.
I have a Worcester combi boiler connected to an old Salus RT500RF programmable thermostat. All my radiators are controlled by this (one zone). I’m in a 3-bed old stone house built 1860ish. Double glazing but not much insulation.
I’m thinking of getting a Salus IT500 (linky) as from what I read you can just plug a receiver module into your boiler (mine is compatible) and it’s all go.
I’ve not looked at doing anything to my radiators, or fitting anything else in rooms, but interested in suggestions. I have an hour’s commute to get home, and it can vary unexpectedly between 4pm and 8pm so being able to turn on the heat when I set off home would be perfect.
