Customer Story Halmstad Fastighets

High energy savings. Intelligent heating.

Halmstads Fastighets AB, also called HFAB, was founded in 1942 and is today the largest public housing company in Halmstad. They put a lot of focus on environmental issues and continuously improvements regarding operating systems and energy use.

Ulf Johansson, the energy manager at HFAB, says that HFAB chose to install Egain Edge in 240 apartments during 2006. They soon found that this saved them both money and energy and decided to enlarge the forecasting area gradually. In five years they installed Egain in nearly half of their properties.

Decreased heating costs:
EUR 318 350 (1 year)
Reduced CO₂ emissions:
477 525 kg (1 year)
Reduction of kWh / m² / year:
Energy savings / year:

The systematic review we did together with the energy expert from Egain is very important in order to get the best heating control and after installing Egains indoor sensors it is now very easy for our caretakers to follow up and locate any deviations in temperature from a distance. Egain has met our expectations regarding savings. Our tenants are more satisfied and that means less fault reports. I recommend Egain Edge to other property owners because it is a small- investment with a short pay-off time.

Our environmental policy is important to many of our tenants and they chose residential area based on that. I’m convinced that it’s a growing trend and therefore we must keep improving our work for the environment.
