Weather compensated heating systems are growing in popularity. They can be used both domestically and commercially to automatically adjust the boilers temperature. But how does this work? And what are the advantages? Here at K and M Maintenance we are Preston’s leading boiler experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to the advantages of weather compensated heating systems.

What is a weather compensated heating system?

Using an outdoor sensor to read the temperature outside and adjust the boiler settings accordingly, weather compensated heating systems are an advanced technology. As a result, when the temperature outside drops, the boiler will begin to to produce more heat, keeping your home warm. Alternatively, as the temperature outside rises, the boiler will produce less heat, allowing your home to remain at the ambient temperature.

What are the advantages of weather compensated heating systems?

advantages of weather compensated heating systems

  • Because of the way that your home will be heated, all parts of your heating system will be used in a way that they are designed for. This is due to the fact that heat will be gradually increased over time, rather than switched on full power, all at once. Theoretically, this should reduce wear and tear, and allow boilers to work effectively for longer.
  • Your boiler will be able to run at a lower rate. This means the heating produced will be consistent, and your boiler will be working a lot more efficiently to provide a steady heat.
  • The boiler will fire up less often and the heat will need pumping around less frequently. As a result, heat won’t be lost through transference or energy usage, meaning that it will be more efficient.
  • Your home will stay at a comfortable temperature, with no sudden rises or falls in temperature.
  • Everything will be controlled automatically, so there is no need for you to manually control your settings.
  • The process of expanding and contracting brickwork is caused by changes in temperature. This results in cracks and chips. However, weather compensated heating systems keep the structure of the building at a steady temperature. As a result, they can actually prevent damage to your home.
  • You never need to worry about turning your heating on or off. Even in Spring when the temperature warms up, your heating will be automatically controlled, perhaps not even coming on at all, depending on the external temperature. Alternatively, on a cold summer night, your heating will automatically turn on, warming your home.
  • One of the most important advantages of weather compensated heating systems is the fact that you could save money on your fuel bills. This is because your boiler will be working more efficiently and effectively to warm your home, and less fuel will be wasted.

In summary

There are many advantages of weather compensated heating systems. This includes the efficiency of the system and the maintenance of an optimum temperature all year round.
