Munich, 12.09.2019 - tado°, the European leader in intelligent home climate management, today officially launches its new Software as a Service (SaaS) product: tado° 360. Empowering energy utilities and heating service companies, tado° 360 remotely monitors the health of a home’s heating system and collects diagnostics that can be used by engineers for faster, more efficient repairs and maintenance. This saves both the home owner and heating service company time and money, offering a new level of customer experience. Leaders in the energy and home service industry, such as E.ON, ENGIE, Naturgy, and OVO Energy, trust in tado° solutions today.
How the industry currently works
The £66B European heating repair market  covers over 220M homes in the EU  and has not seen many innovations in the last few decades. The process to repair a customer’s heating system has remained largely static until today. The home owner returns from work and realises that the boiler is broken. After a freezing night and a cold shower the next morning, a heating engineer is contacted to examine the boiler. Typically after the onsite inspection, the engineer orders the necessary spare parts and leaves. Once the parts have arrived, the engineer then arranges a new meeting and drives out a second time to actually fix the heating system. The process results in a frustrating experience as the customer can endure days without heating or hot water, plus an interruption to their schedule.
The tado° disruption
The new tado° SaaS product now revolutionises this process by reducing customer callouts from a European average of two to one, and in many cases this can even be reduced to none . The tado° Smart Thermostat connects to the customer’s boiler and establishes a digital two-way connection for both control and analysis. It allows energy utilities and heating service companies to remotely monitor the health of the boiler by analysing metrics such as water pressure, pump speed, and error codes.
Millions of boilers break down annually with the average repair bill costing around £270 . tado° 360 uses intelligent algorithms for predictive maintenance and simple actionable resolutions. When tado° detects an issue, detailed insights are relayed so the heating service company knows exactly what the problem is and can solve many issues directly on the phone. If an engineer needs to drive out to a home, they already know which replacement parts to bring in order to repair the heating system on the first visit. This saves both the customer and the heating service company time and money. Furthermore, the heating service company can now improve scheduling, and complete more jobs within the same time.
“tado° 360 helps heating service companies to comprehensively monitor the heating systems in their customers' homes 24/7,” explains Christian Deilmann, Co-founder and CPO at tado°. “Our service represents a step change in the way this market operates and opens up new possibilities for energy companies to transition into holistic and highly-efficient energy service providers.”
