Heating controls manufacturer Honeywell has launched animated videos for installers and homeowners, to showcase the benefits of its Honeywell Single Zone thermostat.

The Single Zone is suitable for homeowners looking for an entry-level heating control they can monitor remotely via the Total Connect Comfort app, helping to deliver savings on energy bills.

Hosted on Honeywell's website and via the Honeywell UK YouTube channel, the animated installer video covers key information about the Single Zone thermostat in short, bite-sized chunks, highlighting features installers can use to upsell the simple-to-use thermostat.

The homeowner video is a useful tool for showcasing these benefits to installers' customers. Featuring information on ease-of use and cost-saving, the animated short can help demonstrate to a user that a connected thermostat is the right choice for them and their home.

Andy Mansfield, marketing communications manager at Honeywell, said: "It's an exciting time in the heating industry right now, and customers need to know that there are smart thermostats available from the experienced manufacturers in the market. With these animations, we wanted to help our loyal installers upsell products but also help them to interact with their customers, pushing out that 'fit and forget' attitude.

"The animation videos are a great way to learn the features and benefits of the Single Zone thermostat, especially for new customers who are toying with the idea of a connected thermostat but not sure which one to go for."

The Single Zone is part of a range of internet-enabled heating controls from Honeywell, designed to give installers greater choice when responding to their customers' needs. The range also includes the evohome multi-zone heating control, which again can be controlled remotely via a smartphone or tablet.
