Guru Systems are offering funded pilots of Guru Heat Smart to housing associations or local authorities looking to improve gas boiler efficiency ahead of the coming winter.

What is Guru Heat Smart?

Many gas boilers do not perform well, leading to more expensive heating bills for residents, and costly unplanned maintenance visits for landlords.

Guru Heat Smart allows property managers to monitor and remotely control individual gas boilers or heat pumps.

Guru Heat Smart

The Guru Heat Smart device captures detailed performance data from the heating system, including return temperatures from radiators, to help identify and resolve performance issues, and reduce maintenance callouts.

As well as understanding performance, the accompanying software displays ambient temperature and humidity data to help predict the risk of mould growth.

What does the funding cover?

Guru Systems will fund 20 Guru Heat Smart devices and the accompanying heat meter. Guru Systems will also fund associated networking infrastructure (e.g. router, gateway and repeaters), training, and project management.

Timelines

All Guru Heat Smart devices must be installed ahead of the start of the 2022/23 heating season.
