Valve responds to everything

Valve is a smart heating solution that helps you to improve the energy efficiency of large housing cooperatives and properties. At the same time, you can reduce your energy consumption. Valve allows you to monitor your heating system in real time. The smart control optimises heating and responds to changes. The fault service is available to help 24/7.

The Valve service package includes

  • district heating distribution
  • smart control that enables conserving energy
  • optimising the conditions of the property with room temperature sensors
  • access to the remote control centre, from which Oulun Energia’s experts and representatives of the housing cooperative can monitor the operation and conditions of the heating equipment in real time

Room sensors accurately optimise conditions

The room temperature sensors enable accurately monitoring the temperature of a property. The sensors send data for the customer’s use and directly to our control centre, where the heating is controlled, i.e., optimised, and changes are made based on the generated data. The sensors also provide information on possible balancing needs, for example.

Smart energy saving for housing cooperatives and businesses

The optimisation of energy use, i.e., automated temperature control, provides savings on both the use of heating energy and the operating costs of heating. In addition, smart peak power optimisation also enables savings on the fixed fee.

Smart control means that the automatic control system of the heat distribution centre of a property is controlled on the basis of indoor conditions, the weather forecast, and the thermal dynamics of the building. This allows for real-time optimisation of energy usage for each property. Traditionally, heating control is based only on the outside temperature.

Real-time heating monitoring

The remote control centre is a user interface that provides real-time access to the heating equipment and room sensor data of a property. It can also be used to control the operation of the equipment and to generate reports.
