Optimise Your Heating Costs and Power Peaks
Improved living comfort
Smart heating services improve living comfort by maintaining stable indoor air conditions. For instance in apartment buildings and terraced houses smart heating is based on outdoor temperatures as well as indoor temperatures.
Energy consumption optimisation
Smart heating based on actual data of existing indoor air conditions eliminates unnecessary energy consumption. Properties are being heated only when it is needed.
Power peak shaving
The need of district heating on hourly levels changes depending on the building and for example on the use of hot water and ventilation. Smart heating recognises these peaks automatically leading to even 20 % in savings in district heating standard fees.
Residents in apartment buildings and terrace houses can get involved with taking care of their indoor air quality with Talotohtori Home mobile app and smart thermostats in radiators. These enable residents to make adjustments in their own spaces regardless of the time and place.
What does district heating demand-side response mean?
District heating demand-side response means processes that help to lower the properties' momentary consumption of thermal energy and/or to move the consumption temporally. Demand-side response should be implemented in the way that it does not weaken the experienced indoor air quality or the service quality. The adjustments aim to stabilise consumption profiles from the level of single properties to influencing the consumption profile of the energy system in the end. Shaving hourly power peaks and stabilising consumption profiles are practical terms for demand-side management.
How is demand-side response implemented in different properties?
In residential real estate power peaks are born by residents' use of hot water in the morning and in the evening. In other properties the use times of the spaces and especially periodic use of ventilation are the cause of power peaks. This means that demand-side response processes differ depending on the property.
As said earlier, Talotohtori offers and develops variety of algorithms to implement demand-side response in properties. Our development is in close co-operation with our customers and our greatest aim is to create services that fulfill the needs of our customers.
