Customer Story Tampereen Kotilinnasäätiö Foundation

Energy management with the help of Egain.

The Tampereen Kotilinnasäätiö Foundation offers rented accommodation in Tampere to older or retired couples and single people. The foundation operates on a self-sufficiency basis.

According to Tampereen Kotilinnasäätiö’s development engineer Kari Lastunen, the Kotilinnasäätiö foundation is constantly taking an active approach to energy efficiency and comfortable living conditions, with building technology solutions and a balanced heating system having a significant impact on these factors. The right solutions and controls mean that costs can be kept in check without compromising on comfort. Comfortable living conditions are particularly important in senior housing. The Kotilinnasäätiö foundation regularly provides information on good living conditions at its residents’ events and through residents’ associations. The Egain service, in turn, has provided the Kotilinnasäätiö foundation with an exceptional tool for monitoring and analyzing heating consumption in the foundation’s properties. The Kotilinnasäätiö foundation is one of Egain’s oldest customers.

According to development engineer Kari Lastunen, one of the main benefits of the solution is that room temperature sensors make it possible to monitor conditions on a continuous basis. Kari added that the Egain service reveals hidden information and also verifies previously acquired information about the function of the building’s heating system. The customer website offers useful and clear historical information for specified periods. Residents’ reports concerning living conditions are always dealt with professionally and thoroughly, but the number of these reports has been falling as a result of more even temperatures. Kari also appreciates the fact that he can speak
to an Egain energy expert at any time.

Reduced kWh / m² / year:
Decreased heating consumption:

“We have also achieved savings in monetary terms, and our cooperation with the Kotilinnasäätiö foundation will expand from the beginning of 2018 to
comprise the entire housing stock. The new Egain technology also makes it possible to implement more extensive sensor installations at the same cost.”
