The BIG Smart Thermostat Comparison Table 2016

With an increasing number of smart heating controls on the market and new features being added all the time, we know that it can be difficult to know how the different alternatives stack up. So we’ve done the research for you, and created a handy comparison table.

This new version builds on our popular BIG comparison table we constructed back in 2014, bringing it bang up to date for 2016 and adding details about zone control. So if you’ve got zone valves, e.g. for underfloor heating, you can easily see which system suits your needs.
