You can access Energy IQ from the Home Screen of your app*. From there, you’ll be able to toggle between two screens, Consumption and Savings. If you have Auto-Assist, you’ll have full access to Energy IQ.
The consumption graph
This is an interactive graph and gives a visual indication of your consumption over time. You can do the following:
Select the month and year you want to view by tapping on the month above the graph, or swiping left and right for consecutive periods.
Toggle between currency and kWh/m³ to see the total amount of your estimated heating costs and consumption.
View your selected month’s usage and compare it with the previous month, and the same month the year before.
Below the graph, you’ll find various additional details about your consumption, including:
a forecast of your heating costs for the current month.
You’ll also be able to see data on the current period compared to the same period the year before for the following:
the % change in consumption and the number of kWh/m³ you’ve heated.
the average outside temperature.
The number of hours you’ve heated.
consumption in your current room.
The estimate is made taking several factors into account, such as your boiler’s activity and/or consumption data. The estimated cost is calculated using the average energy price in your region or the actual price you pay for heating, once given (see below).
Please note: if there are rooms without tado° devices with active heating, EIQ will not be able to take these rooms into consideration, and the total estimate will be less accurate.
Also, at present, our estimate only takes into account the energy used for heating. This is why your report won’t show any energy usage for domestic hot water.
Adding consumption data
To get more accurate, personalised estimates, add your previous consumption data and your energy tariff to the tado° app. Go to Settings > Energy IQ, where you’ll be able to:
add data from your meter readings or heating bills and specify your energy tariff.
select your preferred graph unit (m³/kWh).
change your data source and preferred unit of measurement. Please be aware that if you change this selection in the future, your previous data will be deleted and reset.
Adding historical energy tariffs
If you add your consumption data via meter readings, then you can add historical energy tariffs for a better estimation. This will also help you to get a better overview of your heating spendings. To do so, go to Settings > Energy IQ > Energy Tariff in the app.
Here you’ll be able to enter the following information:
Unit (currency or kWh/m³)
Current Tariff (toggle on/off)
You can also Delete your Energy Tariff, if needed. However, once deleted, you won’t be able to undo this action.
If you add your consumption data via heating bills, you won’t need to add historical energy tariffs, as this is automatically applied.
Consumption by room
If you want to check the consumption details of your rooms and have a better understanding of how much you heat and therefore spend on each of your rooms, please do the following in the tado° app:
Go to Energy IQ,
scroll down to the section Consumption by room, and
select View all rooms.
Consumption by room is based on the assumption that your rooms consume the same if they’re turned on for the same period and at the same intensity.
