Auto-balancing with smart algorithms

Electronic thermostats like the Danfoss Eco™, also comes with algorithms that adjusts for perfect hydronic balancing without you having to do a single pre-setting calculation or manual adjustment of the radiator valves. The balancing of water flow in the radiator system all happens automatically, as the Danfoss Eco™ both senses the temperature of the water in the pipes and the air temperature in the room. Knowing these two data points, it can adjust the flow of water of the valve very precisely according to the temperature setting.

The super-fast reaction time of 1 min. alerts the Danfoss Eco™ within 60 seconds on temperature changes, which allows it to quickly adjust for small imbalances before they become big noticeable temperature drops. This process also ensures out-standing comfort for homeowners, as the Danfoss Eco™ will feel and adjust for the smallest temperature fluctuations, often before the homeowner notices a difference in comfort. The result is homes in a constantly perfect temperature balance and reduced energy consumption.

The electronic thermostats run on batteries that will last for around 2 years under normal use conditions.
