Using its expertise in radiator valve control this company has created ingenious new smart radiator controls that can save on space heating costs and can significantly contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions.
Room temperature control has successfully been managed by TRVs for many years, yet this innovative product not only controls temperature but now time, which means the radiator is only on at times actually required by the end user. Developed under the ‘Terrier’ brand, and recommended by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), the Terrier i-Temp is a programmable radiator control (PRC).
The Terrier i-Temp allows the time and temperature in each room to be fine tuned with no change to the master programmer. This energy saving advancement prevents heat wastage as the end user can focus heat within individual rooms when required. For example a typical user would normally heat the whole house in a number of time periods, but only use rooms at certain points of the day, the Terrier i-Temp can be set to reflect this ensuring no heat wastage in other rooms which results in inevitable energy saving.
This revolutionary new product is just a simple upgrade to an existing heating system; the PRC simply attaches to most brands of thermostatic radiator valves. It upgrades to the majority of existing TRV bodies, with adaptors provided within the pack. Products available include the Terrier i-Temp i30 PRC for vertical fitted valves and the i35 PRC for horizontal mounted valves. Both products are available with thermostatic valve bodies if required for a completely new installation.
Innovative products can sometimes be daunting for users however being “end user” friendly has been key for the development of the Terrier i-Temp that is why programming has been simplified in a walkthrough process, it also offers pre-programmes for bedroom and sitting room or a customisation program. Either way the PRC can be installed or programmed within minutes. There are many additional features for example hidden temperature limit for future potential energy saving, window opening detection, set back and comfort settings and child lock features.
This PRC will provide benefits for all types of applications both domestic and commercial. It can play a significant role in reducing the carbon emission for existing housing stock, social housing, care homes and multiple apartments with a central heat source. In addition, compared to other energy saving installation methods, the Terrier i-Temp upgrades to existing valves quickly saving time and money.
The Terrier i-Temp is the first of its kind to be recognised as an Energy Saving Trust recommended product.
