We had to learn how to sell Heat-as-a-Service over the winter of 2017-18. We couldn’t find room-level heating controls that did what we needed. So we built some, from the ground up, using Google Material Design to make sure they were easy to use.
Our controls showed people the costs of heating their home in different ways. They showed Warm Hours (not kilowatt hours) and helped users discover how many they wanted.
The explainer video below shows how it worked.
