Forgot to turn your heating controls on before leaving for work, or want to come home to a warm, cosy house after a long vacation or a cold winter’s day? Introducing myComfort from Windhager, an innovative remote heating control mobile app for all the Windhager biomass range of boilers that was launched at Ecobuild.
myComfort allows every homeowner to quickly and simply control their individual heating systems every day from any recognised smartphone or tablet. The app can be retro-fitted to all Windhager boilers with MES plus controls and requires a fixed LAN cable to the householder’s router.
Whether at home or abroad, the heating system is always under control and can be regulated from any location via any recognised smartphone. myComfort provides an intelligent way to have two-way communication with the Windhager boiler. Push messages can be received from the boiler to a smartphone about its status, such as fuel levels, emptying the ash pan and service reminders.
Commercial director Oliver Duckworth said: “myComfort is an innovative and stylish application that has enabled us to answer all our customers’ needs. The mobile app allows the temperature of our boilers to be set even before you come home or to save energy when you leave your house. It offers bespoke controls to suit any individual need for how they want to heat their home. As industry leaders in biomass boilers, it is important for us to stay at the forefront of heating technology and provide our customers with as much flexibility as they require when using our products – myComfort achieves exactly that.”
For quick and simple decisions, pre-programmed modes Eco or Comfort can be chosen automatically when bespoke heating is not required. With the weekly overview option, it is easy to set up and organise the heating programme. Heating modes can also be changed, such as the single domestic hot water refill mode that charges the hot water cylinder outside the usual hot water programs.
A demo version of the Windhager myComfort heating app is now available on Apple and Android devices, which can be downloaded at windhager.co.uk
