tado° Smart Thermostat
Sutton, Ely, Cambridgeshire
Tom recently brought his first home and moved in just after Christmas 2016. With an interest in energy efficiency, Tom was eager to reduce his energy bills and wanted to do this quickly with minimal effort.
As Tom sometimes works long and un-predictable hours he was keen to invest in a system which would automatically turn down the heating when he leaves the house and heat up ready for when he returns home.
After discussing the requirements with Tom, Roly recommended investing in a tado° thermostat which once installed uses Geofencing on Tom’s Smartphone to control the heating system. tado° carefully reduces the temperature to an optimal level as soon as Tom has left his home and keeps in mind how to pre-warm the home most efficiently for his return.
Tom downloaded the free tado° app on to his Smart phone and followed the instructions to set up the thermostat. Tom has a good electrical understanding so was able to do this installation with minimal assistance from Mike (Eco Installer’s Electrical Director).
tado° started working out the most efficient way to heat Tom’s home from the first moment he turned it on, making sure in future that no energy would be wasted.
With the tado° thermostat, we expect Tom to see savings of approximately 30% which is usual with this product. We look forward to an update in the near future.
“I’ve had the tado° thermostat installed for just two weeks and I have already seen the benefits from having the system installed. My house is always warm when I return and I am pleased to see no energy is wasted when I am away.
The installation was fairly straight forward and I am happy with how well the app works. I look forward to seeing the savings!”
