Boilers 4 Essex have been installing smart controls ever since they popped onto the scene.


​We have many great options at competitive prices.  

Smart Controls


A typical room thermostat just lets you change the temperature in your home using a dial or control panel. A smart thermostat gives you more efficient, more user friendly and more accessible control over your home’s heating using three basic components.

The first component plugs directly into your boiler and can wirelessly talk to the second comonent, the in-home device that is the thermostat and main control.

The third component is an app that is downloaded to a smartphone (or tablet). Users remotely control the thermostat/main control device via the app, allowing them to adjust their heating from wherever they may be.

This is the basic makeup of most smart thermostats. Some smart thermostats offer more, such as 'learning' your schedule by detecting when your smartphone is in the house, or even taking it step further by detecting when you're on your usual route home, and preparing your home to the desired tempature.





Central Heating Pumps


A central heating pump is a vital part of your central heating system and its purpose is to pump water around your heating system. If this breaks down there will be no hot water to be pumped round the home which means that your heating wont work and there will be no hot water. Our pumps are sourced from leading suppliers providing solutions for domestic and light commercial installations. Boilers 4 Essex also have a range of pump parts and accessories available for those repair and replacement jobs.

Heating Programmers


Heating system programmers are usually found with a s or y plan central heating system.  This type of system uses a hot water cylinder in conjunction with a boiler.  


With the programmer you set the times you want the central heating to come on and off.  Also the times at which you would like the hot water in the cylinder heated.

Motorised valves


Motorised valves are an electrically controlled valve used in central heating systems to control the flow of heated water in the home. Our range consists of both 22mm and 28mm diameters and 2 and 3 ports.  

They are commonly installed on S and Y plan central heating systems as shown to the right.  

If your motorised valve is not working correctly the water will not flow to the areas required i.e the coil in the cylinder and central heating circuit.

Its quite common for these to fail as in a dirty heating system the valve its self becomes sludged up and cannot move , then the motor burns out trying to turn it.  If you are consistently burning out motors there is a good chance you need a power flush.

Thermostats and programmerable thermostats


A thermostat is a device that will turn the boiler off when a press temperature is achieved in the room it is located in.  The only difference with a programmable thermostat is that you can also enter times at which you would like your central heating to come on.


Thermostats used in the right way with thermostatic radiator valves can really make your heating system more efficient and save you a lot of money over time.
