About this deal

With all the valves set at maximum the house never properly got up to temperature - you just assumed that was the norm and there was nothing you could do about it.

By using smart radiator valves, you can incorporate remote, multizone control into your heating system, personalising it to your lifestyle.

Standard TRVs commonly have numbers 1-6 - the number 3 is about 20degC - but most people do not know that and turn them up higher. Only reason we'd like one in the kitchen is that it's really in the dinning room rather than kitchen but it's open plan and what happens at the moment is that we have that room getting quite cold when we aren't cooking and then very hot if we are cooking. In my experience with a whole home setup they are not all that accurate, and can vary by a few degrees in terms of actual room temp (compared to when using a thermometer and the wiser wall stat).

Some of the system radiators use generic 32mm TRV bodies and old Myson 28mm TRV's with third party metal adapters, they all work perfectly. The app doesn’t help as I’ve realised you can’t go back more than 3 months - Drayton you need to fix this.

I'd appreciate any thoughts on this and what peoples experiences have been that do use smart TRV's on all their radiators. The beauty of the room-zoned controls is that you can target the temperature settings if each room precisely based on your regular movements through the house but still easily override when you need too. Any zone with just dumb TRV's or no TRV's is at the mercy of the smart zones to start/stop the boiler. Smart multi-room systems, such as Drayton Wiser, are made up of a smart room thermostat and smart TRVs, all of which are in communication with each other and the boiler. Now the lack of a convenient user interface is a criticism you sometimes hear about the Drayton Wiser system, which is of course app based.

All of the radiators are also able to communicate with the hub without the assistance of smart plugs.Replace your existing manual thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) with Wiser Radiator Thermostats to give room-by-room heating control.
