Leanheat is an IoT solution that aims to decrease heating and maintenance expenses in residences and to make the business of district heating companies more profitable. Today Leanheat has been installed in 30,000 homes in Finland and the company is now extending its business throughout Europe.
Leanheat is run by a team of housing, software development and artificial intelligence professionals. Danfoss, a global supplier of energy-efficient and climate-friendly solutions for selected industries, invested in the company in 2016.
Traditional heating systems fail to adjust to changing weather or the thermodynamic properties of the building. This results in overheating and poor indoor conditions. At the same time, heating systems are inadequately balanced in up to 75% of multifamily buildings. With Leanheat, You can save 10–20% of a typical building’s energy cost. Sensors installed in apartments enable Leanheat’s artificial intelligence to learn the building’s thermodynamic behaviour and to optimally control the HVAC system. Heating is always optimized regardless of changes in weather or in the building’s properties, which change as it ages. Together with proactive fine-tunings Leanheat provides permanent energy efficiency to all multifamily buildings.
Humidity problems in apartments may result in structural damage that is expensive to repair. Likewise, malfunctions of the heating system should be fixed before anything actually breaks down. Leanheat creates up to 30% savings in technical maintenance costs for buildings by providing accurate predictive problem detection. The AI-based control automates technical maintenance tasks while minimizing failures, repair times and site visits. With Leanheat, you can send the right team with the right tools to fix a specific problem with no need for extra measurements or analysis.
