We understand that designing a heating system is not the easiest, so we have broken it down into simple steps so you can get help where you need it. These are the questions you will need to think about when designing a Genius Hub. You can discuss these with your heating engineer or use one of our heating experts, registered as a Installer below.
Do you use a boiler in your property?
Boilers typically run on gas, oil or biomass, and heat pumps run on electricity. Genius Hub controls them all in the same way. If you have a separate
7-day programmer, a room thermostat or the controls built into the boiler itself the Genius Hub will be able to control the boiler or heat pump without a problem.
Radiators, Underfloor heating or electric heating?
Your rooms will be heated with radiators or underfloor heating. For individual control of each room you choose the type of heating in that room on our create your system tool, and automatically the right products will be added to your design.
Do you have a hot water tank?
If when you turn on a hot water tap the boiler fires up you have a ‘combination boiler’, this type of hot water is controlled by the boiler itself. If you have a stored hot water tank this is a ‘system boiler’, ‘heat only boiler’ or a ‘heat pump’. For a heat pump, we recommend you don’t control the stored hot water, but for all the others you can choose the hot water timer or time and temp in our create your system tool to control the hot water.
The Genius Hub is really smart and it can learn when each room is used and make a personalised heating schedule for you. If you want this you add the room or motion sensors to the rooms you want this smart control in.
Do you have any heating zone valves?
Modern and very large properties often have separate plumbed zones or heating circuits, such as upstairs and downstairs. Genius Hub can control these separately so rooms are grouped together depending on where they are in the house. To do this you add one group for each additional plumbed zone in the create your system tool.
