Saved 40% on heating costs
Cornerstone Veterinary Clinic, Belfast
Installation of the Genius Hub System in Cornerstone Veterinary Clinic in Belfast.
After being impressed with the Genius Hub system we fitted in his home, Peter Herold decided to also have it installed in his busy veterinary surgery, Cornerstone Vets, soon afterwards. The veterinary surgery demonstrates the full breadth of what the Genius Hub system is capable of.
How did you control your heating before?
Before the Genius Hub was installed, I controlled the temperature just by manually opening and closing each of the valves on the radiators in each room. Sometimes I would forget and leave a room on, wasting energy. I also have lots of staff who are too busy to remember to turn off the heating when it is not needed.
Redesigning and installing a new heating system, which had been installed in 1985, would have involved enormous expense in re-piping and zoning.
Since the radiators were all approaching 40 years old, replacing them would have been an enormous job, never mind the building work involved.
Another consideration was the cost of a longer term investment in making the building more thermally efficient overall.
The Genius System offers the full control of the system down to each individual radiator, keeps the whole house at a minimum temperature at all times and heats only the rooms/ areas that are required at that time. When I considered the best option, it therefore followed that there must be considerable savings as against the original system I described above.”
What was your main consideration before purchasing the Genius Hub system?
The main consideration was really the ease of control of the temperature, via an app on the mobile phone.
What do you feel contributed most to your decision to buy Genius Hub?
I can control the temperature even if I am not in the property, and I can very much fine-tune the temperature on recurring schedules. Having installed Genius Hub in both my home and my business, I find this very beneficial both in work and at home. So for instance, I can ensure that the staffroom is warm at lunchtime.
What do you like about the system?
When Genius Hub was fitted to my home, I knew very quickly that it would be ideal for my Veterinary practice. When the Gaia engineer came out to survey the building I was surprised to find that I could control all of the electric heating, air conditioning and ventilation fans etc. as well as the radiators.
Do you think you have saved to date on your energy bills, as a result of having the Genius system installed?
Yes, I have saved significant money on both gas and electric energy bills. Like a lot of people nowadays, I want to avoid wasting energy.
How user-friendly do you and your staff find the system?
I find the system very user friendly. If I’m not at the practice, my staff can control each individual room but the system can never run beyond closing time due to the way it’s set up, so I don’t need to worry about it being left on all weekend.
How would you rate your experience with Gaia Smart Energy, and would you recommend our company to others?

Sister Theresa, Siena Monastery
"So far we’ve calculated a drop in gas usage of 30% in April and 50% in May. With the motion sensors, there is a great deal of ability to control when and why the heat comes on".
"Always wanted the Nest thermostat in our house and had said it from the start of our new build. Had some resistance from the spark about installing Nest. So was very thankfully to find Joe through Nest Pro-installer. Who came on site and set up the system. Nothing was a problem, excellent service!"
