Panasonic and Drayton by Schneider Electric Join Forces to Provide Efficient and Renewable Room-By-Room Heating for Homeowners.
We are excited to announce an industry-first partnership between ourselves and Panasonic, combining the industry's best heat pump offering with the market-leading smart heating controls. On an exciting mission to expediate the journey to Net Zero, Panasonic and Drayton by Schneider Electric have joined forces to offer sustainable solutions taking the future of heating to the next level. With the rapidly changing energy landscape and customers' increasing awareness of the challenges ahead, these key players have combined expertise to develop a world-class solution that puts the customer and the environment at the heart of the offering.
Wiser heating controls include excellent money-saving features such as Away Mode and room-by-room control using radiator thermostats and energy monitoring making homes’ more energy efficient. The remote capabilities and intuitive design make it much simpler for homeowners to take control of their heating. With a fully integrated cloud-to-cloud solution, consumers can perform a comprehensive analysis of the heat pump performance and take advantage of Wiser Insights and Insights+ which visualises energy use and encourages sustainable behaviour.
The Mission of the Partnership
Panasonic and Drayton by Schneider Electric place great importance on low-carbon living. At a time when reducing energy use is more important than ever, this integration will provide homeowners with more control over each room in their homes, as well as access to detailed insights.
Remi Volpe, Managing Director at Drayton by Schneider Electric, said “We’re thrilled to be working with Panasonic on this ground-breaking partnership. It’s everyone’s responsibility to contribute to the Net Zero journey, and by joining forces we can expediate this by taking the future of heating to the next level”.
The benefits of the partnership
The new partnership will allow installers of Panasonic Aquarea air source heat pumps to offer their customers room-by-room heating control by fitting Wiser with the Aquarea system. The combination of the two products will enable homes to be as energy-efficient as possible. Homeowners can control multiple electrical devices through the Wiser Home app, lowering their bills and reducing their energy consumption. The app is available on Android and iOS applications, allowing customers to monitor and easily adjust room-by-room heating. For instance, consumers can use the Wiser Home app and activate Away Mode, when they’re not at home, reducing their carbon footprint and energy consumption.
Users will benefit from all the features of the Panasonic Smart Cloud App, including a detailed breakdown of the system's energy consumption, and scheduling a constant and comfortable temperature throughout the day. As a result, end-users can compare space usage and adjust the system to avoid wasting energy.
How will the setup of the Wiser and Panasonic work?
Wiser can be set up in the usual way with the Panasonic Aquarea heat pump, enabling installers to easily create multi-zone systems, where heating is remotely controlled room-by-room via the Wiser Home app.
The Aquarea range of air to water heat pumps provides a low carbon alternative to mains gas, oil, LPG and electric heaters. The Aquarea heat pump works by extracting heat from the ambient outside air. With Wiser products, customers have better heating control in their hands, controlled by the Wiser Home app.
When installed together, heating engineers simply select Panasonic as a ‘Partner Connection’ within the Wiser Home app, unlocking new Insight capabilities, available exclusively to Panasonic Aquarea heat pump users. Within the dedicated Insights page, homeowners will be able to see the temperatures in each room or individual zone.
We are really excited about the benefits this partnership can bring to the future of heating and thrilled to take the next step towards Net Zero.
We will be supporting installers every step of the way – visit the Facebook group to find out about our training and support.
