    True.

    That said, before I had Evohome I used to set the living room at 24C just to create the trigger for the heating to come on and allow the radiators upstairs to get hot. If the UFH in the living room didn't have it's own autonomic flow control I would have probably had to set that way higher and that would have shown on my bill for sure.

    Like Gordanb3,

    I can not prove I have saved money, but the fact that we mostly use the living room at night and the ability to just heat that zone while the two spare bedrooms get nothing unless we have visitors feels like we should save money but it is all about the ability to get heat where and when you want / need it.

    But look at yearly usage and say yep i have saved X is pretty impossible IMO (for me anyway)...

    It is impossible unless the weather conditions and temperatures were the same for each year. There are savings with Evohome, because of the versatility it provides but the main benefit is not cash saved but better control of the system.

    I have HeatGenius on a Combi and it's saved me a ton, even in my little flat:

    2016: 5175
    2017: 4903 (-5.2%)
    2018: 4864 (-1%)
    2019: 3333 (-31.5%)
    2020: 3574 (+7.2%)
    2021: 3591 (+0.4%, forecast)

    Have a guess which year I installed it...
