The new electric underfloor heating controller, named the NGTouch, has been designed with a range of lifestyle functions to reflect the routine of its user.
The thermostat is compatible with any electric underfloor heating system – it can also be used in conjunction with Heat Mat’s 160W heating mats or loose under tile cable.
It has been designed to fit in UK back boxes, at 82mm high x 82mm wide.
The NGTouch will form the basis of a cost-effective heating system, which programmes daily ‘events’ to represent a homeowner’s individual lifestyle.
Along with a colour resistive touchscreen interface, the NGTouch features 4 or 6 pre-programmed ‘events’ per day, from morning to overnight. Its ‘lifestyle modes’ include frost protection, holiday, comfort and boost.
Eco mode switches the system off temporarily when a house or room is unoccupied.
Meanwhile, its adaptive function anticipates when to switch the underfloor heating on, with the aim of reaching a target temperature for the first daily event.
Manual mode can switch the thermostat back to basic manual programming at any time.
An energy monitor has also been included to display the system’s electricity use over a week, a month or a year; it can show this in both kW and cost.
The system’s QR reader allows programming information to be extracted from the device; it can then be emailed to Heat Mat’s technical team for fast support.
