Debunking Smart Heating Myths
Smart heating is not as intimidating as you might think.
Smart heaters are still quite a new phenomenon, so we are aware that there might be a few people in need of reassurance before making the decision to buy them. Let’s clear up a few things about smart heaters and debunk a few of the common myths or misconceptions about using smart heaters in your home.
Smart heating is too expensive
Installing smart heaters is a one-time cost. From there, they will most likely save you money as opposed to using manually operated heaters, gas heating or radiators. BeHa’s smart heaters come with a five-year warranty, and are expected to last at least double that time. This means the cost per use goes down and the heaters are a good value investment. Running your heating the smart way usually turns out to be cost-effective.
Operating smart heaters is too complicated for me
Anyone who can use a smartphone or tablet, and is able to open and use an app, can operate BeHa’s smart heaters. You do not have to be overly tech-savvy or even hold an interest for it to use smart heating in your home. The BeHa SmartHeater app is easy to use, simple to navigate and does not complicate your heating. After your heater is connected, you will be taken through set-up step by step. After this, the heating will run itself, requiring no further effort from you.
Smart heaters are unreliable
Once you have set up programmes for your smart heaters, they will stick to them faithfully, and will not change until you interfere. BeHa’s smart heaters are equipped with internal memory, meaning the programmes are saved in the heater itself, not in the router. This means that if there is a disconnection for any reason, the data will not be lost. If there is a power cut, the heater will return to your programme when the power is back and the heater switches back on.
Installing them will be difficult
This is not a large operation, no engineer or electrician is needed. BeHa’s smart heaters simply need to be mounted on the wall, using only four screws. All you need is a drill, some free wall space, and the knowledge to screw four screws into the wall. To start using them you just install the app and plug in the heater. So this is not a process to be worried about, it does not take long and can be done by just about anyone.
I do not have room for a smart heating system
Do not worry about limited space. These heaters can all be wall-mounted, and do not require any of your precious floor space. This means that as long as you have a section of your wall free, you will be able to enjoy the perks of BeHa’s smart heaters in your home.
I have to leave the heaters behind when I move
You do not have to wait until you are in your forever-home to invest in smart heating. As the BeHa smart heaters are mounted on the wall using only four screws, removing them is easy. The short installation process means the removal is quick as well.
I cannot use a smart system because my schedule is different every day
The smart heaters will do what you tell them to. If your schedule is too irregular or unpredictable to set up a weekly programme the heaters can stick to, you can use your phone as a (long-distance) remote and turn them on when you are on your way home, instead of having them come on at a set time every day. You do not have to set up a timed programme to avoid coming home to a cold house.
