Improved heating control
Using a heating controller with TRVs and a room thermostat allows you to set the temperature in each room individually. Each TRV shuts down the radiator from the heating when the temtemperature around the valve hits the set temperature. Generally people prefer seperate sleeping areas to be a couple of degrees colder than the main living rooms in the home so by using TRVs on each radiator can improve comfort levels in each room. Once each room is at the desired temperature and all the TRVs have shut off the radiators then a room thermostat, can switch the entire heating system off. This saves on bills as well as maintaining the correct temperature.
