The earliest known thermostats were developed in 1620, with the first electric thermostats invented in the late 19th Century. Traditionally heating systems have required wiring to be installed underneath floorboards for it to work effectively. However, in the 21st Century, Wireless Thermostats are a very modern way of easily incorporating more control into your home’s heating system, whilst removing the need for wiring.
Wireless Thermostats work by determining the temperature of the air around it, and when that temperature drops below the one it has been set at, it will turn on the heating. For this reason, Thermostats are best placed in an area that you use most frequently so that it controls the temperature based on where you actually are, rather than that of, for example, a drafty hallway that is likely to be cooler than where you want the heat.
At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies we offer a wide range of Wireless Thermostats including Programmable ones, Cylinder Thermostats and ones that include a Receiver.
