What is a Thermostatic Radiator Valve? TRVs sense the air temperature around them and regulate the flow of water through the radiator which they are fitted to. They do not control the boiler.They should be set at a level that gives you the room temperature you want.
The valve should not be shielded by curtains or obstructions and should not be in direct sunlight in order for the sensor head to detect the temperature of the air in the room.
You should have thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) on all radiators but not in the same area as a wall thermostat, as this room may never get warm enough to turn the boiler off via the wall thermostat if the temperature in this area is being controlled independently by a TRV.
Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters, they will help you keep track of your energy consumption in the home and cut out the need for you to provide meter readings thus providing accurate energy bills.
Smart Meters enable you to see when you're using the most energy and how much it's costing you. This means you can adapt your energy use and cut down on waste to provide long-term carbon and financial savings.
They provide you with accurate and real-time information about your energy use, enabling you to make informed decisions about your energy behaviour.
