What is a Glow-worm control?
Glow-worm controls give homeowners the opportunity to decide how their heating system is used, with options such as setting fixed times, accounting for external weather conditions, or making sure your heating doesn’t turn on when you're away from home.
This allows for greater control and customisation of heating and can even help to keep your energy bills down as you’re not heating your home unnecessarily.
There are over six Glow-worm controls to choose from that are all compatible with our range of boilers. Each control has something different to offer to suit your everyday needs.
Why is it relevant in your home?
The type of control you choose for your home will depend on what features are important to you, as each control option offers different features.
Some Glow-worm controls allow you to prioritise which rooms you wish to heat. At night, it’s likely you want your living room area to be warmer than your kitchen.
