If you have a boiler connected to your heating system, chances are that you’ll need to connect it to a thermostat. Why? Because while most boilers can regulate the temperature of your home on their own, their sensors are calibrated to the average room temperature. In order to maintain its setpoint, it will turn on and off in cycles.
In this post, we’ll walk through how to connect a smart thermostat to a boiler. A smart thermostat is an increasingly popular addition to the smart home. They can save you money by reducing your heating and cooling bills and they’re often easier to use than the old-fashioned thermostats that most of us grew up with.
Connect smart thermostat to boiler
- Go to the website of your smart thermostat.
- Choose the “connect to boiler” option.
- Click on “connect to boiler” and enter the address of your boiler (e.g. 192.168.0.5)
- Wait until you can log in to your thermostat.
- Go to settings > energy > boiler and check the box “Show heating target temperature”.
- Set the target temperature at 16°C (60°F).
- Go back to the main screen and close the app.
To ensure that your smart thermostat and boiler are working together efficiently, you need to set up a connection between them. You can do this by connecting the thermostat to the boiler. It’s important to understand that there are two ways to do this. You can either connect the thermostat directly to the boiler, or you can use a wireless sensor. Whichever method you choose, it’s important to make sure that you can connect the two devices.
