Keep Your Current Boiler & Save More
Adding a Kanmor 260e Weather Compensation Control saves energy by calculating the ideal boiler water temperature for every day of the year. Why heat the water to 80°C when your system only requires 55°C to create a comfortable living space?
With your existing boiler, the weather compensation control monitors the outdoor temperature and automatically adjusts the boiler water temperature to match your heating requirements. Adding a 260e control will save on your fuel bills, improve the efficiency of your boiler and increase your comfort.
How Your Heating System Works
When the air temperature drops below your thermostat setting, a signal is sent for the boiler to turn on and warm up your house. Without a weather compensation control, the heating system does not know if it is a cool autumn night or the coldest winter day. The boiler operates at a pre-set temperature until your house is too warm and the thermostat turns the boiler off.
Your boiler’s operating temperature (typically 80°C) is set to provide enough heat for the coldest day of the year. Most locations in the United Kingdom have less than 10 days a year that require this extreme temperature. By reducing the water temperature for the remaining 355 days of the year you can experience significant energy savings with your existing heating system.
