This project was delivered by South Holland District Council. It mirrored a similar project with the same partner to compare three other smart heating controls in other council owned properties1. Each project was recommended by the funders to involve installation of 45 to 60 heating controls of three types for comparison. The two projects were on too large a scale to be combined into 1 project report, but the methodologies were comparable so comparison is possible.
This project had the following aims:
- to establish the heating costs for households with the Nest, Netatmo and tado smart thermostats compared to the period when the property had a wall-mounted dial thermostat.
- To determine the ease-of-use and resident satisfaction levels for each of the smart thermostats.
- To contribute towards an evidence base for landlords to assess the suitability of different models of smart thermostats for their properties.
