    Making Old Storage Heaters Smart

    opening an old thread but may be of use. I have storage heaters and quite happy with them, older ones need to be closed until you manually open the output but can be quite poor at retaining heat. If they are connected to the night switchover unit a smart option is pointless as they should only...

    100% don't want to involve google or alexa :) I am liking this setup, just a bit paranoid about it! Only other alternative at the moment is changing current relatively new heaters to smart heaters (£450+ each), am looking at them

    Hi I have a holiday home and received a 2k elec bill recently despite the house being empty 6 months.
