How Can You Help Your Customers Save up to £200 a Year with Wiser?
1. Check the existing heating controls
By upgrading basic Class I on/off heating controls to a smart thermostat system by Wiser saves up to 12% energy, even without multi-room heating control. The research also showed these savings were largely independent of how a user interacted with the system, making this figure widely achievable for most households.
Wiser top tip: For more information on what class heating controls fall into, check the technical information, or for Drayton products, check the product's datasheet in our Drayton online documents section.
2. Already have a programmable thermostat?
Even if a programmable non-connected thermostat is already installed, customers can still save up to 6% with smart heating by Wiser, thanks to easier heating control away from home, allowing changes to be made that stop energy wastage in its tracks.Wiser top tip: If the current programmer is fitted via a standard UK wallplate, installing Wiser smart heating is as easy as unclipping the old and clipping on the new Wiser HubR, then simply follow instructions in the app to pair the wireless devices.
3. Go multi-room
Wiser’s multi-room smart heating control saves a further 19% energy, simply install the smart radiator thermostats in rooms other than the living room (typically heated most often) to prevent energy wastage caused by overheating unused rooms.Wiser top tip: Smart radiator thermostats by Wiser are available in Wiser Multi-Zone Kits and individually, so expanding a system is easy and affordable.
