Welcome


EcoThermo is an innovative solution aimed at converting old centralized heating system into functionally autonomous ones. Similarly to all the heating conversion systems, EcoThermo provides the basic functions of independent temperature control at flat level and heating cost allocation based on the real thermal energy absorbed by each user. But EcoThermo drastically moves forward the technology needle with an internationally patented new metrological technology whose challenge is to replace the state of the art ones based on the so called heat cost allocator devices or the less accurate and less accepted one named degrees-day.

The whole system is completely wireless and remotely controllable and it exploits the most innovative mathematical, computer science, automatic control engineering and metrological technologies to represent the entire heating distribution system, not just its terminals (radiators). This allows at helving the number of devices installed on each radiator and, incredibly, at increasing at the same time the allocation accuracy and robustness.

Other technological innovations have been identified and will be engineered to offer an active temperature control that could give up to 2.5 times higher savings with respect to traditional passive control realized by thermostatic valves; and overcoming the limits of the existing electronic radiator valves whose batteries last not more than one year contrary to what promised by the main manufactures. Furthermore, two IT Expert Software Modules will increase the savings analyzing the user behaviors and keeping the heating system at the highest efficiency working point.
