HEATMATE / Localized space heater design


Let’s assume you live in a house with 132 m2. In order to maintain certain temperature, the gas boiler runs 24h. That means exhaustion gas and NOX are emitted during the whole time. Heating an entire house for a family of four is very inefficient and unnecessary consumption is inevitable.

We want to cut the vicious circle by localized Space Heater named “HEATMATE” so that consumers are able to control their consumption pattern and save energy. It will reduce the harmful substance generation at home and prevent wasting further energy and resource. Finally and ultimately, it will help the climate changes.
