Wattinen is a new service for households to fight climate change
Heating buildings is one of the biggest sources of climate emissions in Finland, DNA’s new service Wattinen is very effective service to help households to reduce their climate emissions. According to Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority HSY statistics, it generated more than 56 per cent of all climate emissions in Helsinki last year and over half of all emissions in the capital city region. Wattinen is aimed at housing companies and their residents, enabling them to save up to 30 per cent on the energy used in heating.
Easy-to-use and intelligent
Wattinen automatically ensures a suitable temperature inside apartments. The smart service is installed into existing heating systems and adjusts residents’ heating in accordance with their preferences, thereby automatically preventing unnecessary energy consumption. Wattinen is based on self-learning artificial intelligence that continually gathers data on, for example, heat retention, weather forecasts and the property’s location. With the aid of this data, Wattinen decides how to adjust the heating in each room in order to optimise both residents’ comfort and the property’s heating energy consumption. The AI accurately predicts and controls the property’s heating room by room.
When a housing company starts using Wattinen, a smart thermostat with a wireless connection to the service will be installed in every radiator. Residents can use a mobile app to adjust and schedule their heating to their liking. Heating can also be adjusted in the traditional manner, using a thermostat. Heating is always adjusted to the Celsius scale.
Wattinen enables you to control the temperature in individual rooms. For example, a slightly lower temperature can be set in bedrooms overnight for a better night’s sleep, while ensuring it’s still nice and warm at bedtime and in the morning. Wattinen also saves energy while you are out at work or away on holiday.
