But with such a massive selection to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which Worcester Bosch boiler controls will benefit your home and allow you to get the most from your heating and hot water system.
In this guide, we discuss the different types of Worcester Bosch boiler controls available and what they can do for you and your home.
Worcester Bosch MT10RF Mechanical Timer
The MT10RF mechanical timer is a simple control that allows you to set heating start and stop times, as well as different temperatures during the day and night. It consists of both a transmitter and a receiver that communicate wirelessly to one another, so there is no need for additional wiring. The receiver plugs into the boiler and the transmitter is mounted on a wall, meaning you don’t need to access the boiler because you can set your heating times from the control on the wall.
Worcester Bosch MT10 Mechanical Timer
The Worcester Bosch MT10 is a simple to use dial control that lets you choose when you want your heating to come on and switch off. It simply plugs into the boiler and the clock is set by turning the dial to the required time, then you push in the tappets to set the heating times. The MT10 is a good choice if you prefer using basic, traditional controls over digital alternatives.
Worcester Bosch Greenstar Comfort I Programmer
This intelligent programmer plugs into the boiler and comes with a separate room thermostat, which works using wireless communication to increase boiler efficiency. It gives you the ability to control your heating and hot water 7 days a week and lets you programme your heating and hot water to switch on and off up to 3 times each day. The Greenstar Comfort I features a clear back-lit display and easy navigation menu to make it incredibly easy for you to control your system. It also comes with a Holiday Mode function with frost protection.
Worcester Bosch Greenstar Comfort II Programmer
Like the Greenstar Comfort I, the Greenstar Comfort II combines a programmer that plugs into the boiler and a room thermostat that lets you programme and control your heating and hot water. The main difference is that the Greenstar Comfort II allows you to set up to 6 heating temperatures each day over 24 hours. It also comes with easy menu navigation and a Holiday Mode with frost protection. As the thermostat can talk to the programmer to let it know what times you want the heating and hot water to switch on and off, no wiring is required and you can access all functions without having to touch the boiler.
Worcester Bosch Greenstar Comfort Digital Programmer
The Greenstar Comfort Digital Programmer is a twin channel programmer that plugs into the boiler and enables you to control the heating and hot water 7 days a week. Both the heating and hot water can be programmed to switch on and off up to 3 times a day and you can set different times for different days of the week to suit your routine. In addition to the clear back-lit display, the Greenstar Comfort Digital Programmer boasts a Holiday Mode and easy menu navigation. This control is exceptionally clever and can automatically adjust to British summer and winter time to keep you comfortable throughout the year.
Worcester Bosch Greenstar Comfort+ Stat RF
Designed to be used with the Greenstar Lifestyle range, the Comfort+ Stat RF is an impressive smart control that communicates wirelessly to the boiler. The heating can be set using a separate room thermostat and the control itself allows you to set 6 adjustable heating and hot water periods each day. Worcester Bosch has also included load compensation with this device to help further improve the efficiency of your heating system.
Wave Smart Thermostat
This smart, internet-connected programmable control lets you operate your heating and hot water from anywhere in the world, via a smartphone or tablet. Worcester Bosch’s Wave control can be programmed to pair with up to 8 devices and it will remember your preferred programme settings or can be adapted to suit your needs. The thermostat control is usually placed in the hall or landing and can be controlled manually, and you simply download the free Wave app if you want to use your smartphone to manage your heating and hot water. And because of the Wave’s innovative programming, it can take advantage of advanced control features, such as weather and load compensation to provide additional comfort and energy savings.
The Bosch EasyControl is a smart thermostat that allows you to manage your heating from a smartphone or tablet, giving you the highest level of control over your heating system. Once installed, you can control your heating when you’re not at home, provided you have access to the internet. Everything is controlled from an app, so you’ll be able to adjust settings and check your energy usage whenever you like. The app also gives you access to graphs on your gas consumption and even lets you book your annual boiler service. When you purchase the Bosch EasyControl, you’ll get a wall-mounted controller with a colour display that keeps you informed as to what your Bosch EasyControl is doing throughout the day. This control also features home presence detection technology that enables the thermostat to turn down the heating when you leave the house and turn up the heating when you return home.
