In Merihaka, Helsinki, a housing association decided to install smart heating controls to all apartments. Smart thermostats enable dynamic heating controls, energy savings and added living comfort. Residents can adjust temperatures according to their daily or weekly schedules, e. g. drop temperature during night time or vacation. The thermostats and the wireless solution are provided by mySMARTLife partner Salusfin Ltd.
A first set of thermostats has already been installed in 20 apartments. Info evenings were organised before the installations and additionally residents have been interviewed about issues relating to heating comfort.
The installations enable the local utility company Helen, also partner in mySMARTLife, to start the heat demand response pilot in Merihaka.
