This week we were in our hometown of Northwich to take a look at an oil boiler job. The customer reported an issue with their hot water not working. They were also looking to install Smart Home technology to control their oil heating system.
After taking a look at the boiler for a short while, we quickly realised that there was a fault in the circuit board of the Worcester Greenstar Heatslave model, plus a large build up of soot and kerosin burning deposits (oil).
This is a straightforward repair, so we removed the old faulty circuit board and replaced with a new one. We cleaned out as much of the build up as possible too.
The customer enquired which Smart Home Thermostat worked best for their boiler and budget - from that we recommended the Hive system created by Centrica.
We fitted the Hive device with ease (and also threw in two smart lightbulbs for free!) before giving the customer a quick demonstration of how it worked and talked them through the app to control the thermostat.
If you are looking to upgrade your thermostat for a modern Smart Home system, then please get in touch with our team for some advice!
