Do you need a smart thermostat?
You may be wondering why you should consider replacing your old manual thermostats (TRVs) with a smart thermostat. Actually there are a ton of reasons to do that. Lets take your bathroom for example. If you want to have a shower in the morning you’ll need to turn on the heating in the evening so the bathroom is nice and comfy in the morning.

Don’t be afraid to replace your TRV
I know a lot of people think of TRVs as mystical creatures and are therefore afraid to replace them. The good thing is, it’s not as dangerous and complicated as my may think. In order to replace your old thermostat with the Eve Thermo, you need access to the securing ring of the TRV. This ring connects your TRV with your radiator. To make the removal easier, set your TRV to the highest possible setting. Now now you can loosen the securing ring by turning it counterclockwise either by hand or if necessary with the help of a wrench.
Installing Eve Thermo
After you removed your old TRV, you can now continue by installing your smart thermostat. This is pretty easy, since you are being guided through the whole installation process on the Eve App. As a results you now need to install the new thermostat, but be aware, in some cases this only can be done with the help of the adapters that are coming with the eve Thermo. After you screwed the Eve Thermo into place, it’s time to calibrate it. Otherwise the thermostat won’t be able to tell, at which position the heating is turned on or off. For this reason, you have to repeated this calibration every time you are switching to another radiator.
Saving the planet little by little
Investing in smart thermostats can be pricey depending on the amount of radiators you have, but consider this. You are saving money every time your heating is turned off, when it normally would be on. Therefore thermostats like Eve Thermo are paying for themselves. The more and longer you utilise the features of such thermostats, the higher your return of invest will be. In the end you are not only saving a huge amount on your heating bill, you are also doing your part of saving the environment.
