Free wireless smart thermostat with a new boiler from BOXT

Friday, January 19th 2018 by Pete Wise

Fancy smartening up your home heating habits? If so, you may be interested to hear that the boiler provider BOXT is now offering a free wireless smart thermostat with every wall-mounted combi boiler.

When you buy a qualifying BOXT boiler, you’ll get a Honeywell Lyric T6 Wireless Smart Thermostat (RRP £199.99) bundled in.

You can use the thermostat to control the boiler’s settings in real-time, whether at home using its touchscreen interface, or remotely with a connected smartphone, tablet or smartwatch running the Lyric app. It can create daily or week/weekend boiler activity schedules with up to six time-slots per day, and is compatible with smart assistant devices including Apple HomeKit, Amazon Echo and Google Home.

A standout feature of the Lyric T6 is its use of “ringfencing” to control the heating depending on whether you’re in or out of the house, which it can work out based on whether your connected smartphone/tablet/smartwatch is in range. You never need waste heat while you’re out again.

The thermostat is also available with BOXT’s other boiler types as an optional upgrade.

A boiler on your wall the next day

Founded in Leeds last year, BOXT has disrupted the boiler market with a fresh, digitally orchestrated service that promises a boiler on your wall the next day, if you order before 3pm. Robert Bosch UK Holdings acquired a minority share in the start-up last October.

BOXT’s key point of difference from other sellers is that it doesn’t have any sales representatives. Purchases are available online only, with installations carried out by Gas Safe registered engineers.

The company stocks a variety of Worcester Bosch, Baxi and Vokèra boilers. Combi models eligible for the free Honeywell thermostat promotion include the Worcester Bosch Greenstar 30i, the Baxi EcoBlue + 28 and the Vokèra Vision 30c.

Combi boilers are the most common boiler type in the UK and also in BOXT’s range – so you have a range of models to choose from. As some of you will already know, they’re called combi boilers because they act as both your water heater and your central heating boiler.

BOXT’s promotional incentives don’t stop at thermostats – there’s also a free filter bundled in with every boiler.

Payment for BOXT can be made in full upon purchase, or on finance at 9.9% APR.
