Underfloor heating thermostats work in a slightly different way to those used for radiator-based central heating. This allows you to not only have better control of your home's heating, creating a comfortable temperature where you need it, but also reduce the amount of energy wasted, which means your heating bills are smaller too. 

There are a few types of controls available for your underflooring heating, including both wired-in and wireless thermostats. There's also a move towards more 'Internet of Things' enabled controls for underfloor heating, meaning that you can control your heating from your phone remotely, set up timers and schedules and even, in some cases, using a smart assistant.
