Smart Modes: Eco vs. Comfort

Smart Modes make the most of your energy usage by automating your Wiser smart heating system. There are a few options to choose from, so today we wanted to compare two of the most popular modes: Eco and Comfort. Here’s how they can help you make Significant Energy Savings:

 

What is a Smart Mode?

But first, let’s explain Wiser’s ‘smart modes’ in more detail. These options are designed to make controlling your Smart Thermostats even easier by managing the heating schedules of your home. They can be activated in the settings of the Wiser Heat App and can be switched on or off anytime, anywhere. This makes them excellent tools for Managing Your Smart Heating Remotely, and for lowering energy bills. 

 

Eco Mode

Eco mode is built around the aim of being Greener with Wiser Smart Thermostats. The smart heating control option learns about your home's thermal properties, its reaction time to temperature changes, and can turn the boiler off sooner. This has Multi-Room Functionality and works out the most economical way to run the system, thanks to Smart Heating Insights. The result is greater savings, up to a 7% home energy use reduction in fact, according to a Schneider Electric study. 

 

Comfort Mode

This is a useful option for ensuring that your system reaches the correct heating settings on schedule and in the most efficient way. Using an algorithm to learn how long it takes to warm up your home, Comfort Mode ensures your home reaches the set temperatures right on schedule, activating the boiler at optimal times. This means that your Smart Home is always at the preferred temperature when you need it to be whilst minimising energy wastage. 

 

How energy efficient are they?

Whilst both are far more effective at managing your energy usage than traditional heating systems, you may think that the above options separate comfort and efficiency. However, Wiser’s smart modes can be activated together, meaning that our heating systems can control your boiler to maximise both simultaneously. This means that you can have eco-friendly heating that can lower your energy bills, without sacrificing your comfort!

 

In addition to these at-home options, Wiser also features an Away mode, which can save you up to 24% more energy when you’re out of the house. So, to find out more about running your home’s heating efficiently, you can view our Smart Modes Page Here
