It was a great pleasure to be speaking live on air with presenter Andy Coote on his Thank Source it’s Friday show last Friday (5th November) morning at around 11am.
Tune in to Source FM 96.1 each week to listen to topical discussions. When I was with Andy we discussed our award winning Genius Hub wireless heating control system, how it can cut your heating bills, reduce your carbon footprint and increase your comfort.
This is a great place to start if your thinking about installing heating controls. On the show I talk about the types of building that are suitable, the costs and payback, available grants (Genius Hub now has Carbon Trust Accreditation), how the Genius Hub system can save money for both Domestic and Commercial customers and how Genius Hub continues to support its customers post installation.
Andy, a writer from Penryn, is not only a presenter at Source FM, he is also Chair of Falmouth Business Club. He is heavily involved with networking with local businesses.
I thank Andy for the opportunity to join him and I look forward to spending more time in Cornwall over the coming months with the various projects that are soon to start.
The Go:Tech Awards celebrate entrepreneurs and businesses paving the way in technology and innovation throughout the UK, and we are proud to announce that we have been named as a finalist for its Clean Tech Award. GeniusHub heating controls are now installed in thousands of homes, and dozens of hotels and commercial premises.
Energy savings from our commercial installations are measured in accordance with the International performance measurement and verification protocol (IPMVP), to provide a robust measure of energy efficiency improvement.
We are delighted to have won The Techies Consumer Startup of the Year award!
This award is given by the number one technology media company in the world IDG. Their PC Advisor publication has previously done a long term, in depth test of our Genius Home smart heating control and concluded:
“[Genius Home] lets you do a lot, with a relatively small amount of hardware. Between the various Eco modes, the timer, overrides and even the smart plugs this system is a true smart home system. It just needs to draw the curtains and put out the bins to have the full ‘Tomorrow’s World’ feel. I’m really impressed with [Genius Home].”
Their sister publication, Tech Advisor, did a thorough comparison of 7 of the Best Smart Heating Controllers. They compared the Genius Hub with Heatmiser Neo, Honeywell Lyric, NetAtmo, Tado, Nest and Hive – but ultimately they decided that the Genius Hub is the best you can buy and gave us 1st prize!
“Heat Genius is very good at a very useful thing. It is easy to use and efficient, and over time it will save you the cost of installation. And it is fairly priced… It’s a great product, and if you are looking to install a zoned smart heating system, we’re happy to recommend Heat Genius.”
Our founders, Alasdair and Simon, tried to travel down from our Birmingham office to the awards ceremony in London last night, but sadly the disruption caused by Hurricane Doris meant they got stranded en-route. Alasdair said:
“It was frustrating that we couldn’t get to the ceremony, but we’re absolutely delighted to receive this award! There’s some stiff competition among home heating controls from big corporations like Google and British Gas. I’m really proud that a relatively small British company like ours can create a product that can compete with those big players. Every time I read we receive an award like this, or I hear positive feedback from a customer – that’s when I know we’ve got it right.”
