Smart Thermostats.

Smart Thermostats are a new trend that allows control over your heating wirelessly via your smartphone, tablet or computer. They’re a great way to save money on your gas bills, but it all depends on how you use them. We fit two different types of smart thermostats, the Honeywell Lyric T6R which comes as standard with every boiler install, and the Nest Learning Thermostat for the more advanced user.

Honeywell Lyric T6R

Conventional thermostats often need to be fixed to a wall, but the T6R is a wireless thermostat that can be placed in a convenient location. The Smart thermostat comes with a free app that is essential if you want to control your heating via your smartphone, or tablet. With the app, you can schedule heating for grouped dates (Mon – Fri), or you can opt for a day-by-day setup. The great thing about the Honeywell is its compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit – so you can control your heating using only your voice. Another strong feature is its geofencing capabilities, this means your phone will send a notification to your boiler to turn on when you get a certain distance from your house – so you’ll never have to walk into a cold home ever again!

Nest Learning Thermostat

We offer the Nest thermostat as an optional upgrade during install, and we recommend this product to the more advanced users. One of the best features the Nest has is its unique AI learning ability. This means the more you use it, the more it learns about you and your heating habits – as it will automatically and efficiently heat your home. As long as you have a smartphone, tablet, or computer handy, you’ll be able to fully control your heating when you’re out and about, thanks to the Nest app. If you already have smart home capabilities, the Nest will work in tandem with other smart home kits such as Amazon Alexa, or Google Home – which means you’ll be able to control your heating with just your voice.

Ideal Halo

Packed full of easy to use features which enhance energy and efficiency, the Ideal Halo Lite is beneficial to both landlords and tenants alike. Compatible with current Logic combi boilers, this Ideal programmable thermostat has flexible scheduling, child lock functions and easy installation. Complete with 2 years warranty*, our programmable room thermostat also has a landlord contact number input function, making it perfect for social housing.


Hive makes controlling your heating easy from your mobile, tablet or laptop. The next generation Hive brings you beautiful design, intuitive control and easy to use features. Hive works no matter who supplies your energy and will work with your existing heating system. You can easily keep track of how you’re using your heating through the temperature graphs on the Hive app and receive heating alerts when you leave or return home. The Wireless Thermostat lets you control your heating when you’re at home, the Hub plugs into your broadband router so you can control your thermostat remotely and the receiver enables your thermostat and hub to communicate with your boiler. If you have a tank, you can easily control your tank too.


"Perfect from start to finish"

They were out quickly, diagnosed the issue with our boiler and gave us a fair and balanced opinion on whether to replace it with a new model. When we opted for the replacement they had it ordered and fitted for us in no time at all and with no fuss. I’d very happily recommend M Spencer Plumbing and Heating to anyone.
