Ideal Heating has extended its Halo controls offering with the launch of a new two-zone combi kit that provides installers with greater flexibility when installing controls.
The Halo Combi 2-Zone allows users to operate its programmable room thermostat, Halo Combi Wi-Fi, across an extended range.
The two-zone kit will allow installers to introduce the internet-connected control into more homes, including larger properties with more complex heating needs.
For homeowners, this will provide the option to set and adjust multiple heating schedules and temperature settings for different areas of the home – for example upstairs and downstairs – balancing comfort with improved energy efficiency.
The Halo Combi 2-Zone provides users with the all the same benefits and features of the Halo range – including the ability to programme up to six heating periods and vary schedules from one day to the next.
The upgrade will also fully integrate with the Halo Combi Wi-Fi’s smart features, allowing users to take advantage of internet connectivity and app-controlled heating to control their heating on the go, with the added option to adapt depending on the zone.
In the box is the Smart Wiring Centre, which can be mounted to a fixed surface and features clearly marked and colour coded connections for quick and efficient installation. The Smart Wiring Centre controls the operation of each heating zone valve for independent control over the dual heating zones.
The Halo Combi 2-Zone upgrade is fully modulating on both zones and comes with a two year warranty. It also provides enhanced load compensation and Boiler Plus compliance, giving both installers and their customers extra peace of mind.
Lizzie Wilkinson, Head of Domestic Product Management at Ideal Heating, said: “At Ideal Heating, we pride ourselves on being experts in heating, providing the very best in reliability, efficiency, and innovation. In recent years, we have built on this with the formation of a dedicated Internet of Things team, which specialises in developing products at the forefront of heating control technology.
“The launch of the Halo range marked a culmination of that work, and the Halo Combi-2 Zone is the latest step in our continued journey towards providing intelligently-designed products that make life easy for both installers and consumers.”
The Ideal Halo range is compatible with both Ideal Logic and Vogue combi boilers and is available now through the merchant supply chain.
