What exactly is involved in the heating controls upgrade?
The idea of upgrading your heating controls is to save money by matching your heating and hot water schedules to your living patterns. You can save on heating bills by only having the part of the house you are using, or about to use, heated and by being able to have different temperatures in different parts of your house at different times. Similarly you can save money by timing your hot water requirements accurately.
Splitting your home into two independently controlled zones (space and water) allows you to heat your hot water without having your radiators heat. These controls allow you to control the temperature as well as the time in each zone. Thermostatically Controlled Radiator Valves (TRVs) allow you to adjust the individual temperature in every room.
As your requirements differ from day to day a 7 day programmer will optimise savings allowing you to adjust to your individual living & working pattern.
Time and temperature control of your electric immersion can minimise unnecessary water heating costs.

What is meant by boiler interlock?
Where manual control of zones by hand valves are fitted the radiators and the water are manually turned off but the gas boiler stays on. Because just the valves are off the boiler still goes on and off, costing you money. (This is called cycling and is a very inefficient use of any fuel. Boiler interlock means that when thermostats turn off radiators or water the boiler shuts down also, saving you on heating costs.
