Ideal Heating has expanded its Halo controls offering with the launch of new programmable room thermostats specifically designed for homes with its Logic and Vogue Heat and System boilers.
The new additions to the Halo range have options for both two-zone and single zone houses, completing the Ideal offering so homeowners with any of Ideal Heating’s flagship Logic and Vogue boiler ranges can now have Halo integration.
Halo Heat & System gives larger homes with more bathrooms the opportunity to benefit from lifestyle-led heating and hot water control – helping to limit waste and increase energy efficiency.
For homeowners, Halo provides the option to set and adjust multiple heating schedules and temperature settings, including for different days of the week. For those with the two-zone upgrade, this can even include separate schedules and settings for different parts of the house.
As with the combi boiler Halo unit, there is a Wi-Fi option available for Halo Heat & System with smart features, allowing users to take advantage of internet connectivity, an app for control on the go, and geo-location which enables Halo to automatically turn heating on and off depending on if members of the household are within a pre-set boundary.
Inside the box, is Smart Interface with a bracket so the Halo unit can be mounted on a fixed surface near the boiler. A smart wiring centre is also included and can be located by the cylinder, up to 30m away from the boiler. The smart wiring centre controls the operation of each heating zone valve and communicates with the interface using a wireless signal.
Features and connections are clearly marked and colour coded for quick and efficient installation.
Lizzie Wilkinson, Head of Domestic Product Management at Ideal Heating, said: “At Ideal Heating, we are always looking for the next way to evolve and adapt to meet the needs of our installers and their customers. Halo has already proved popular for its ease of install as well as its simple and intuitive design that works around the user’s lifestyle. This latest launch now completes the Halo range, so everyone with our boilers can benefit.
“Heat and System boilers and their controls are often more complex to install than their Combi counterparts, so we have dedicated time and effort to creating a control that is still simple and quick to set up – make sure our installers’ lives are made easier too.”
The Halo Heat & System is fully modulating for homes with one or more zones and comes with a two-year warranty. It also provides enhanced load compensation for extra peace of mind.
The Ideal Halo range is compatible with both Ideal Logic and Vogue boiler ranges and is available now through the merchant supply chain.
