Energy IQ allows you to track your heat pump’s energy consumption via your tado° Heat Pump Connector.

You can access Energy IQ from the Home Screen of your app, and when you subscribe to Auto-Assist, you’ll have access to all of the Energy IQ features.

If you have a Heat Pump Connector but you don’t have Auto-Assist, you will only see a consumption graph for the current period. You won’t be able to toggle through or see your energy consumption trends over time.

Consumption graph

This interactive graph shows your consumption over time. To best visualise your data, you can do the following:

  • Toggle between currency and kWh/m³ to see your estimated heating costs and consumption.

  • Select the month and year you want to view by tapping on the date picker above the graph and scrolling through the menu.

  • Select any point along the graph’s curve to view the cost and consumption data (in kWh/m³) for that time. This includes points in the future, for which the consumption graph shows a forecast of your expected costs, based on the available data.

  • Compare the selected month with the previous one, or with the year before.

With a Heat Pump Connector and Auto-Assist, you’ll find more tools below the graph to help you manage your costs and consumption.

Cost simulator

The Cost simulator shows how changes to the Smart Schedule could have affected your spending in a chosen time period.

The estimate takes several factors into account, such as your Heat Pump Connector’s activity and/or consumption data, and is calculated using the average energy price in your region.

A Heat Pump Connector will send consumption data directly to the tadoº app, so you won’t have to input any data manually.

Savings summary

The Savings summary gives a breakdown of how tado° helped you save over the last month. It shows you the number of hours that:

  • Geofencing set your heating to Away mode

  • Smart schedule set your heating to an energy-saving temperature

  • Weather adaptation accounted for the natural heat of sunshine

  • Open window detection shut off heat due to an open window

Lastly, the Savings summary shows you what percentage of energy-saving temperature adjustments you made manually.

Consumption by room

If you have room control devices, you can 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.

To see the consumption by room in 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.

Please note: if you bought your products from one of our partners, you might not be able to access this report.

A small number of heat pumps won’t display the full Energy IQ report. If you have a Heat Pump Connector and Auto-Assist, but you don’t see the full report as described above, please let us know via chat.
