Housebuilders Should Look To Smart Technology
The government has announced that gas boilers will be banned in all new-build homes in the United Kingdom by 2025, in a brief spring statement which outlined a number of climate goals.
The targets, which build on the government’s Clean Growth Strategy, include:
- Helping small businesses reduce their energy bills and carbon emissions.
- Reducing dependence on burning natural gas in homes and businesses.
- Ensuring new build homes are future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency.
We look at which smart home technology could fill the void left by traditional heating systems.
Who Benefits From Smart Technology?
Smart technology is beneficial if you want to see how much heating you’re using and how much it costs. It’s geared towards tech-savvy people who are comfortable using smartphone apps, and those who want to program their heating while on the go.
Those likely to stay in their current home for several years can recoup the cost of installation through savings on heating bills, while housing developers can market new build properties as more efficient than older properties by simply including smart technology.
Cürv infrared heating comes in the form of flat panels, ceiling tiles, mirror heaters, underfloor panels or glass towel rails, with each customisable to suit the existing decor of any home.
Each product runs on electricity, which means there’s no need for a boiler hook up. The introduction of PV solar panels ensures the system is completely powered by renewable energy.
All come with eco-smart controls for a highly efficient and sustainable heating solution.
The temperature of a room can be controlled with the touch of a button, while smartphone synchronisation means settings can be adjusted and detailed breakdowns of energy costs viewed from anywhere in the world.
The Cürv Infrared App enables individual room heating control from anywhere in the world via smartphone. With fully-programmable settings, users can create 24/7 heating schedules, while monitoring the monitoring system to ensure complete control of settings and costs.
The Cürv Wireless Thermostat, which can only be used with ceiling tiles (either 6 x 375w or 3 x 750w), is used to control and automate device temperature.
This ensures the compliance of tiles with the European energy saving regulation, while the advanced seven-day timer control ensures maximum efficiency of smart heating devices.

Designed to control room temperature with a separate program for every day of the week, the Cürv Wireless WIFI Room Thermostat features an array of modes to offer homeowners control of their home heating.
How Long Will It Take For A Smart Thermostat to Pay Pack?
This depends on different factors, including the heating technology you install, how big your home is and how much attention you pay to your heating habits and control.
The technology works best in well-insulated properties, while users should make sure they’re on the best energy deals for their regular consumption to maximise investment.
