Found 26th Mar
Tado have an Easter promo for loyal customers.

2 or 4 TRVs or thermostats.

2 thermostats for £208
4 thermostats for £396
2 TRVs for £108
4 TRVs for £196

TRVs aren't coming down in price at all of late so these are a great bargain at £49 each (if buying 4).

Work with Alexa and you don't need the Tado boiler controls if you don't want.

Nice, does anyone know if you need to change the fitting of the radiators at all? On two of them I have thermostatic valves but unsure about the other 2.
You still need the bridge don't you?

It comes with 3 different adapters to fit to most radiators.

Yes
No cheaper than Honeywell Evohome and I know which one I would choose for long-term ownership. Look nice though.

Thanks for the reply. But I wasn't sure whether I can just fit them onto a cap like this...

This is just a valve, not a TRV (on your picture). So in your case you need to replace these with trv valves, and Tado will replace manual control knobs.
£49 - still on expensive side. Sometimes they drop a bit lower.

Thank you for confirming. sounds like it will be hassle. May just replace the two I know have TRVs

Wait for prime day....then they drop by half and think they were going for £30 each

Thanks for sharing a small saving on TRV but worth it. Tado across the home is excellent (apart from they eat batteries). Mind you, Not sure why a multi pack on thermostats would be any use, potentially one in each room?
Is there anything like this that does not require a bridge? Should be able to make them work with the nest thermostat with Samsung ST/IFTTT, just not keen on having another bridge.
They were £35 each during Prime Day last year, but haven't been cheaper since, so anything around £40 is a good price.

Definitely, as potentially will require draining the system. (I moved to Tado and replaced 2 TRVs. Six to go, just need a bit better discount)

These are not thermostats. These are TRVs for existing Tado installations.

Just to clarify - the Tado Smart TVRs are thermostats - i.e. they will request for the boiler to be turned on if the temperature falls below their target. But you are right that this heat request can only be serviced if you have the Tado Smart Thermostat installed (if you do not have this installed then these just act as automatic TRV control).

Is Tado better than Nest?

Is Tado better than Nest?


Doesnt look as fancy but in terms of functionality I would imagine better. I dont believe nest can control individual radiators which is a big plus with tado.
Thanks OP. Have Ordered this. I was in the exact same dilemma with the “one day about 9 months ago and maybe it will come back” but ... maybe not. Even if it does I can order more later for the remaining but I am sure the other 4 I have ordered will help save a little more on heating cost anyway. Thank for the direct link too as I could not find this on the Tado site without it.

When is prime day?


Think it's sometime in July, but not confirmed yet.
I have 3x trv extension box and thermostat from tado.
Set everything up and ever since don't have to touch single radiator.
Ohh and miss can't argue it's cold lol

That’s a valve. They should be fitted on the hall where you would normally have a wall thermostat and the bathroom where steam can affect TRVs.

TRV; Thermostatic Radiator Valve. Yes they are thermostats.

I have one on the master bedroom, one in the kitchen and then the thermostat in the hall by the living room. Spare rooms I just keep switched off unless someone is stying over.

Depends on whether your timer can correctly map your routine...

We have a Tado because is uses geolocation to track us and as our routine as a family is different every single day and our boiler only has a single day analogue timer... Tado only heats the house when people are on their way home so no one ever has a cold house to come home to but it also doesn't waste any heat when people aren't around.

^^ that's the standard Tado system.

These TRVS (which I haven't had the courage to fork out for yet) add an extra level of granularity like only heating certain rooms at certain times of the day etc... Is useful, for example, when you're home at 6pm and the boiler is on but you don't need to heat the bedrooms. I believe they can also detect open windows? So, if someone is too warm and opens a windows the radiator will automatically switch off so as to not waste heat.

Still undecided if these are value for money - the basic system on the other hand is 100% worth it.

Nope... they'll control the rooms you put them in fine... Defintiely don't NEED them everywhere, but the most efficient system will have them everywhere

Perhaps a room thermostat is a nice addition. That way you can set a temperature for the house that you like, and then it will tell the boiler to heat the radiators up, and then it will tell the boiler to automatically turn off when it reaches that temperature. You can also get some TRVs installed so that you can have specific radiators turn off if the rooms are not being used, or to just fine tune the amount of heat coming from that individual radiator in that room. screwfix.com/p/w…368

My daughter's room for some reason doesn't get very warm in the winter, but the majority of the rest of the house is fine. The worry I'd have is my daughter's room would request the boiler to be on quite a lot and the rest of the house would overheat. I suppose that's when you need to start putting them on to more radiators.

On that note (being in my daughter's bedroom), do they make any noise when operating? She's one, and the last thing I'd need is buying something that might wake her up!

This is my concern is well - which is why I was wondering you need them everywhere otherwise there will be certain rooms that get too hot or too cold

There is minimal noise for less than a second, and only notice sometimes in family room but in a dark room at night then I am unsure how loud it would be... if you know what I mean. It doesn’t bother anyone in the house but no young kids these days.

Ah! I see what you mean! Right... these control the flow of hot water to the radiator... they don't control the boiler itself. The Tado boiler controller would control the boiler based on location, timers or manual control.

Your house may have the same issue my house has... Being that the radiator run is now slightly too long, so when all the radiator valves are open the last couple of radiators never seem to get warm - it's because all the other radiators are stealing all the heat.

If the above scenario is you, then in actual fact you'll want to the heat output from other radiators so that the radiator in your little ones room gets more of the available heat. These would help if you got multiple ones but wouldn't work if you just got one for her room.

And they're completely silent unless you've got a sticky radiator valve - then you can get some pretty incredible knocking - but that's with all TRVs.
Honestly, do not buy smart TRVs. Batteries last 6 months and what happens when the batteries fail? They open the valve and boil you until you realise.

I don't believe there is any cost saving whatsoever and you are forever changing batteries. Hive or similar is far better.

I've found a good place for all mine....

I have Tado and had the same issue so bled the rads first.and then 'balanced my heating system' last night and toasty as anything this morning and a warm mancave!.

I've got tado and they're great. But my house is a miss match of exposed walls etc so my bathroom/kitchen were always freezing with the main thermostat in the kitchen. This has knocked a good 3rd off my bill after installing these. However my experience hasn't been without its problems. At times. I feel like I'm beta testing a product!
Since we're almost at the end of this heating season I'd consider waiting and seeing where these guys are up to in the autumn:

Yes, the decision is pretty much all or nothing. Either you have all rads with tado or none, no point just having one.

It that's the same with normal trvs. You need them on every rad, except for the one room where you have the thermostat controlling on/off boiler heating.
