Homeowners are being encouraged to adopt a new smart thermostat for their heating that can sense when windows are left open or even when no one is home and turn radiators down or off.
Energy company ScottishPower has partnered with tado to champion the advanced technology that could lead to a saving of over 20% on energy bills, on average £267 a year*.
Its smart thermostat system can tell when a person leaves home via a linked smart phone app and turn heating down or off, and then back on again when they return.
It can also check in on the weather and make sure homes use less energy when the sun is shining, since room temperatures will be naturally higher. And it even knows when windows have been left open and can turn heating off to stop energy being wasted.
Chris Carberry, ScottishPower’s Smart Solutions Director, said: “At ScottishPower, we’re at the forefront of the changing world of energy and know that, by adopting smart technologies like this, our customers can take control of their own carbon emissions, reduce energy wastage and lower their energy bills.
“Being more energy efficient can make a big difference I’m delighted ScottishPower are partnering with tado to help our customers take advantage of the quick wins this advanced technology can bring, both for the environment and household budgets.”
Anthony Munn, Sales Director for UK&I at tado added: “Scottish Power is helping homes across the UK to use energy more efficiently and effectively. We’re really proud to be bringing our tado Smart Thermostats to their customers at a 25% discount, so Scottish Power customers can lower their bills even further. On a Scottish Power tariff, using a tado smart thermostat saves £267 per year on average, which is 22% on heating costs.”
The tado Smart Thermostats are compatible with all common heating systems. They can be easily installed at home in around 30 minutes. The associated smartphone app means homeowners can see usage patterns on their energy consumption, understand how they consume energy, and see which rooms have a higher demand for heat than others.
It can also be controlled via smart systems like Alexa, Google Home and Apple Home.
