Thermo Hero


Your thermostat that is where it's at. If you want to save money on your heating bills you're gonna have to spend some time with your thermostat. If you use your heating system properly you'll keep your home at a comfortable temperature without wasting fuel or heat - it's a no brainer. As a minimum you should have:

  • a programmer (for controlling the times when you want heating)
  • a wall thermostat (to set the temperature)
  • thermostatic valves on the radiators for per-room control
  • a thermostat on the boiler controlling the temperature for the water that goes around the radiators


A square badge with a dial thermostat in the center with the words: Thermo Hero

Turn the wall thermostat down 1 degree.
