A must for every plumber’s tool kit: JG Aura Heating Controls
Project at a glance
APG Domestic Services has been providing heating, plumbing and renewable energy solutions for over sixteen years. Looking for a heating control system that could be installed onto existing radiators, APG sought the help of JG Aura.
Based in Preston, APG Domestic have worked hard to achieve a good reputation and the company is always on the lookout for new solutions to offer their customers. “JG Underfloor were on hand with our very first UFH install, which was a site with three houses where we required a demo on how to programme JG Aura Heating Controls. JG Underfloor’s backup service is second to none and they are always quick to respond to any enquiry”, commented Paul Cross at APG.
Having successfully installed numerous JG Underfloor Heating systems and being impressed by how easy the JG Aura Heating Controls are to install and setup, APG agreed for their next project to trial the new JG Aura Wireless TRV, as they needed a solution that could easily integrate with existing radiator stock and enable individual temperature control throughout.
A quick and easy hassle-free installation
APG combined JG Aura Wireless TRVs with JG Aura Wireless Programmable Thermostats and found the system quick and easy to install as it required no wet plumbing and minimal wiring. “We retrofitted 8 standard TRVs to JG Aura TRVs, added 9 battery powered JG Aura Wireless Thermostats to each heated zone, wired in the boiler receiver, paired all the stats with the TRVs and programmed them within 4 hours. That is phenomenal compared to alternative products on the market” said Paul Cross at APG.
Seamless wireless network
The JG Aura Coordinator was used to pair all the components to the wireless network. This was achieved in a matter of seconds as the coordinator requires no wiring and is simply plugged into a mains socket. Paul Cross adds, “The JG Coordinator is a great bit of kit, I programmed the time and date on one stat and it automatically sent the information to the other stats. Normally this is a long drawn out process after the hard work has been completed, but the coordinator allowed for quick pairing and programming”.
Tried, tested and trusted
When asked if they would recommend JG Aura, Paul said, “I will definitely recommend the product after today’s experience. I will be offering this product to different types of customers, as the product is very versatile. We can offer this product to UFH customers who are having UFH on ground floor only but radiators upstairs so that their entire heating requirements can be operated on one system. I will also offer this TRV system to customers that we do full central heating installs for with a combi boiler and radiators, so that we can offer an energy saving solution when compared to the standard set up of just zone valves and radiators”.
