clever system, daft user or average user, limited system?
There's a lot of good here - am just loving the idea that I can use the app to increase the temperature on the smart thermostat in the room I'm in, it calls for heat and, hey presto, personalised heating for that space...brilliant! Or is it?
This is maybe where I am getting it wrong but...I have a couple of dozen radiators across 14 or so rooms and corridors. I have 5 rooms covered so far with Tado smart TRVs (with 5 more TRVs to install). So...my personal space (above) is the room I'm in PLUS every other room or radiator without a TRV. Suddenly I don't feel so clever and nor am I saving money with Tado.
The limitation of the number of rooms necessarily means I have some manual thermostatic valves which will take any heat they are offered - even if it's called from a far flung radiator in a room at the other end of the house.
Am I missing something or is there a way around this? Similarly, I have a more exposed spare room - three external walls - which, whilst the smart TRVs are set low, will ask for a tickle of heat every now and then...the same issue presumably in that every other non smart radiator gets hot and uses oil.
