The BIG heating control comparison table

You can read all the reviews but with an increasing number of smart thermostats becoming available in the UK, it can be hard to keep track of which features each heating control system offers. Which lets you zone your house using wireless radiator valves? Which is smart enough to learn when you’re normally around? Which does both? Okay, the answer to the last one is easy – only Heat Genius – but for all your other questions, here’s a handy comparison table we made using data from the excellent Recombu smart thermostat roundup:
