Time to upgrade your thermostat?

Wednesday, 18 November 2020  |  Amit

2020 has contained no shortage of conversation topics. Which is a shame. Discussions about the weather, usually a conversational staple during this time of year, have been overshadowed. But we think it’s time to wheel out the armchair meteorologists, and discourse on a topic that’s close to all of our hearts: The weather is getting colder.

So with the thermometers sinking lower and lower, and many of us still plying their trade from our own households, it’s more important than ever to ensure that you’re getting the right level of heating in your home.

But a smart home needs a smart thermostat, and if you’re unsure whether a particular device fits the bill, makes sure you consider the following points:

  • Old thermostats can be difficult to navigate, with confusing menus and unclear letters


  • Poorly designed models allow for dirt buildup, which can skew the temperature reading


  • The anticipator may be maladjusted or defective, leading to short-cycling (turning on and off repeatedly), and exceeding or never reaching the required temperature setting.


  • Older versions are higher maintenance, requiring more call-outs and causing unnecessary stress and hassle!

Like many other household gadgets, thermostat technology has been given a real functionality leg up with the help of digital technology. If your device is one of those drab white affairs with only a rotating piece of plastic to set the temperature, then you are missing out on some of the amazing new features present on more modern versions.

Retrotouch offers a range of thermostats for all your heating requirements. Whether it’s boiler or underfloor heating, we have you covered. Our sleek glass panels offer crystal clear LCD displays, with a wealth of features to choose from for any heating plan.

We know your heating requirements vary from day to day, and from season to season, so our easily programmable thermostat range is there to give you peace of mind. There’s no point in keeping your home warm when you’re not in, just as there’s no point letting your colleagues or family freeze when the wonders of heating technology are at your disposal.  With six adjustable heating periods available seven days a week, your home can be both energy efficient AND comfortable to live in.

Our models are easy to use, fire resistant, and will look fantastic in any home. Using the most cutting edge technology, they are also far less likely to give you grief at the time when you need them most. It is our belief that a modern house needs truly modern gadgets, so to avoid household conflicts, extortionate energy bills, and being left in a technological lurch, consider upgrading or installing one of our thermostats now!
