It may well have been coats and jumpers weather recently, but the summer is generally the best time to test your central heating system and make sure it is in tip-top shape for when you need it. To this end we have a second video from James of James Gas Services for you. Here James shows how to make sure that your radiators heat all the way to the top, thus saving money on your heating bills, keeping you warm and saving you calling out a tradesman into the bargain.
US company Nest has announced that their beautifully-designed thermostat is now available in Canada. But that doesn’t do much to satisfy those in our Mac-loving London office who are wowed by the design and functionality of the innovative thermostat that learns about your behaviour over time.
Nest gets to know your schedule and your ideal temperature and saves you money by adjusting itself. You can also change it with your iPhone, Android device or your laptop – giving the heating a boost for when you get home if it suddenly turns cold out.
At $249 it is not the cheapest thermostat you can find, but we still want one. It certainly beats the often ugly grey boxes that sit in our hallways or living rooms now.
