As a Honeywell Approved Installer, Millside are proud to announce that Honeywell Environmental Control Products UK have provided details of their new intelligent Heating Control System evohome, that will be available to be installed in early 2014.
Announced in late October, The evohome wireless multi-zoning system has been extensively updated and will provide home owners with the ability to create up to 12 heating zones and a hot water zone in their property – this will be controlled, either by the new evohome Controller or remotely via a smart phone or tablet App (Apple & Android).
Key points about the new system are:
- 4 more zones than the current evohome and it still controls hot water
- All the standard optimisation features; Window open features and other smart features of the existing evohome will still be available
- There is a new slim line wireless Radiator Controller with a flip up screen
- Set points can be managed via a tablet or smartphone App (Apple & Android)
- Colour, touch screen control with a brand new interface making it easier to set up
- Hydronic underfloor heating control is supported
evohome features an easy-to-use mobile app that allows control of the home’s heating remotely, making it convenient to control your home heating wherever you are and whenever you need it. evohome can ensure your home is cosy and comfortable when you get back home without unnecessarily wasting energy and money whilst you’re out or away. Remote access control is available on both iOS and Android, whether on the go or on the sofa.
evohome also combines a raft of smart technology designed to enhance your comfort. From understanding when a window is left open and adapting your heating accordingly, to learning how a house heats up and cools down throughout the year, evohome is not just a thermostat but the “brains” of your home heating. Intuitive control functions mean settings can easily be overridden when needed, delaying the heating coming on when you arrive home late.
“In the same way you don’t only have one light switch for your entire house, we believe you shouldn’t control your heating with one single switch.” said Jeremy Peterson, GM of Honeywell’s EMEA Home Comfort & Energy Systems division. With the right heating controls in place you really can make your home your perfect comfort zone by setting different temperatures for different rooms, at different times.”
“We’ve done extensive testing proving the energy saving benefits of smart ‘zoning’ and having an accurate, real-time insight into home heating.” continued Peterson. “With more energy bill increases and erratic winter conditions on the way, we believe it can help UK households make real savings on energy bills. Alongside the extra control provided by the smartphone app, it adds up to a sensible home investment ahead of winter setting in, allowing our customers to find their true comfort zone.”
evohome can be easily installed without disruption to your home décor by one of Honeywell’s recognised heating installers. It communicates wirelessly around the home and is guaranteed to fit most heating systems, including those with stored hot water.
Coming in a range of easy-to-match colours, with a high contrast touch screen and a modern design, the evohome Connected Pack, which includes the internet gateway, will be priced from £249 RRP. Honeywell evohome will be available for purchase in the UK in January 2014.
