When do I need to purchase an Extension Kit?
You'll need an Extension Kit if any of the following apply:
- You have a hot water tank and would like tado° to control the hot water
- You have no existing room thermostat
- You would like to relocate your existing thermostat
- You currently have a thermostat that communicates wirelessly
The Extension Kit can only be used as an add-on along with the Smart Thermostat, and only one Extension Kit can be installed per account.
How do I know if I have a hot water tank?
Heating systems with hot water tanks tend to be found in larger homes and with the hot water tank typically located in your loft or in an airing cupboard.
Systems with a hot water tank will heat and store hot water for when it is needed, while a combi boiler without a hot water tank will heat your water (and the boiler will fire up) each time you need it.
How do I know if my thermostat is wired or wireless?
A wireless thermostat is battery operated and is typically either mounted on a backplate on your wall or sits on a stand and can be moved around your house.
If you have one of these, you will need to buy the Heating and Hot Water bundle with the Extension Kit, even if you don't have a hot water tank.
How do I know how many heating zones I have?
How many thermostats you currently have will tell you how many heating zones you have:
0 or 1 = 1 zone
2 = 2 zones
3 = 3 zones
and so on.
If you've got any concerns and want advice, you can contact us and we'll do our best to help identify the right kit for you.
