Heating is one of the biggest energy consumers in a private household. Moreover it has one of the highest carbon dioxide emissions, which is causing global warming. But how come people are not aware of the polluters consumption, which is a standard in almost every home? The usual radiator has a passive appearance so you cannot develop a sense for its energy usage, it always look the same.
With this new radiator standard the heat and so to say the energy is visualized by thermo chromic colours. It influences the users perception through visual impulse. By showing clearly its activity the amount of energy usage will shrink automatically.
