Customer Story: Smart heat with thermostats from enercity

Customer story about smart heat from enercity. In this blog article, you can find out how enercity creates smart heat with its thermostats.

With the new product line Smart Heat the energy service provider enercity now offers its customers an extension to the warm@home product portfolio, the service offering for sustainable heating solutions.

Reduce energy and heating costs while comfortably reducing CO2 emissions - the optimum room temperature is also guaranteed. Not only owners but also tenants benefit from this retrofit solution for their own home.

The product

Based on ROCKETHOME 's technology platform, the 2022 solution was designed, developed and launched together with the partner.

enercity customers now have the option of controlling their heating intelligently via a smart home app for optimum heat distribution. Energy savings of up to 30 percent are possible, with a simultaneous reduction in CO2 emissions and increased comfort.

Upon request, specialists from enercity can check the efficiency of the heating systems on site and optimize them manually (so-called hydraulic balancing). The product is one of the measures promoted as part of the climate protection initiative of enercity and the City of Hanover with the aim of bringing more energy efficiency and cost savings to citizens through intelligent technologies. Customers who have booked a gas tariff at the same time receive further price and service benefits.

Homeowners are offered further options in the warm@home product portfolio that enable them to save heating energy sustainably. However, smart heat is also suitable for tenants who want to sustainably reduce energy costs independently of their landlord by means of a small upfront financing. A positive return on investment is made possible after just a short payback period.
