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, by using the Wiser Home app. Within the dedicated Insights page, homeowners will be able to see the temperatures in each room or individual zone. The Insights+ feature offers you a real-time breakdown of your energy spend, enabling you to set budgets and control your energy usage.
