10. Weather Compensation Controls

Published:  14 January, 2009

Vaillant
Vaillantís latest range of commercial wall-hung boiler offers the option of weather compensation control.
Weather compensation works with a sensor outside and another in the boiler communicating with each other to vary the flow temperature. This is more efficient than the boiler turning on and off, which wastes energy. Weather compensation controls will get better results out of boilers (therefore cutting carbon) and are relatively cheap and simple to install ó Yet they have not caught on in the UK in a big way. On a positive note, this potential could be unlocked quite simply and without huge expense.
