JG Aura Wireless TRV heating control system has been chosen for a 5-bedroomed residential property in Salcombe, Devon as a retrofit energy efficient heating solution.
The system needed to complement the clients’ lifestyle and deliver cost savings without compromising comfort.
With the house primarily used as a holiday home there is no need for every single room to be heated all of the time. A flexible programmable heating solution was required to manage the distribution of heat and to integrate with existing radiators.
JG Aura Wireless TRV heating control system provides great control and integrates easily with the existing radiators and can be installed without damaging the interior. By only heating rooms in use to the desired temperature the solution will deliver considerable energy and cost savings.
As this was a retrofit, Speedfit specified twelve battery powered JG Aura Wireless Thermostats (rather than the 230v mains wired version) that do not require any wiring. The stylish thermostats are also freestanding which means the homeowner can place them anywhere in the room that is convenient. The battery powered JG Aura Wireless TRVs took less than a few minutes to fit per device. No wiring or wet plumbing was required as the smart TRVs simply replace the existing TRV heads and automatically adapt to find the open and close limits of the pin mechanism.
A JG Aura Boiler Receiver was fitted so that when the wireless thermostat calls for heat the device switches on the boiler. When the desired room temperature is reached the boiler receiver turns the boiler off. Although this was the only part of the job that required tools, it was very easy to fit as it utilises the existing boiler wiring.
Once the twelve TRVs and boiler receiver were installed, it was time to pair the system using an intelligent device called the JG Aura Coordinator, which automatically completed the process in minutes. With the seamless network created and connected to the programmable thermostats, the system now turns off the flow of hot water to the radiator and will only open and allow the radiator to get hot when the thermostat communicates with it.
