It’s a cold December’s day. At least its Friday. You have friends coming round for the weekend. And you plumber rings you to tell you that the central heating is broken. It’s a faulty pump, but he will meet you at home at 5:30 – he has to pick up the part before his supplier closes. But your heating is fixed and your home is warm before your stressed-out partner makes it home through the traffic at 7.

It’s a cold December’s day. At least its Friday. You have friends coming round for the weekend. You get home at 5:30. It feels a bit cold. You play with the thermostat but nothing is working. By the time your stressed out partner gets home at 7 you are equally stressed. Nothing will work. You call your plumber, you get voicemail, every time you call. Your friends arrive. You now have no heating, nor hot water. Eventually your plumber calls back. But its Saturday so the call out fee is £100. He arrives at midday. It’s now getting very cold. After an hour he has an answer – you need a new pump. But the supplier is closed till Monday. Your friends need a hotel – but as its December everywhere is full. Eventually they find an overpriced guest house. The weekend is a disaster. You need to take Monday off work to let the plumber back in. Another days leave gone. An awful, cold, miserable weekend.

Compatible with most smart home systems, the Energyapp central heating control system is not only able to alert you (and your plumber!) of any problems, it is able to diagnose (and even source parts) – saving you not only money but cold miserable weekends!
