  • Is tado° the right solution for underfloor heating?

    You will save with tado° even with heating systems that respond slowly, such as underfloor or wall heating. Because tado° adjusts your heating profile according to the weather forecast and the characteristics of your building, it will avoid needlessly heating when the sun is shining (predictive control) for example. On top of that, tado° calculates the ideal reduced temperature specifically for your home when you leave, so that the building never cools down completely. All of this helps you to save a considerable amount of energy, even with underfloor heating.
  • How can I save up to 31%?

    In a scientific study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics, the energy savings potential of tado° products was determined to be between 14 and 26%. The study showed that the greatest factor that determines the savings potential is the location-based control, with which savings of up to 24% can be achieved. A further saving of up to 7% can be achieved by including the weather forecast. If you still aren’t convinced, you can try tado° with our Energy Savings Guarantee for one year - risks free.
