Built-in smart home features such as real-time heating cost monitoring, smart scheduling, and zoning.
SOLUS+ is an electric heater, but not as you know it. Up to 30% more cost efficient than traditional electric heaters. Built-in smart home features such as real-time heating cost monitoring, smart scheduling and zoning. Simple plug and play design, no installation costs.
THE SMART CHOICE FOR YOUR HOME HEATING
SOLUS+ is an electric heater, but not as you know it. Sleek, smart but most importantly affordable to run. Designed to simply plug and play, with no installation costs. SOLUS+ is designed to be more cost efficient than conventional electric radiators and smarter than your current home heater. You can now control your heating from the comfort of your phone. Cost efficiency that benefits the environment and your wallet.
SAVE ON YOUR HEATING BILLS
Our unique graphene-based heating technology works by emitting far infrared heat. Infrared technology heats in the same way as the sun. Rather than heating the air around you like traditional heaters, it heats you and the objects in the room directly. By not relying on convection heat, a 800W SOLUS+ M2 unit can heat a 20sqm space with up to 30% less energy than traditional electric radiators.
The average UK home* spends approximately £655/€745/$845** on their heating each year. By backing SOLUS+ on Indiegogo, you can transform the way you heat your home. By changing to SOLUS+ infrared heating system, not only will you gain a smarter heating system and transparency on your heating costs, you could also reduce your annual heating bills by up to £196/€223/$253 per year (based on average UK home*), leaving you to enjoy the additional savings each year to spend on things that matter to you the most.
THE BENEFITS OF THE SOLUS+ SYSTEM
Unlike other heating options, SOLUS+ is a plug and play solution. You no longer need to spend thousands of dollars installing a smarter, more cost-efficient heating system. SOLUS+ has zero installation costs and zero maintenance costs. It’s a plug and play solution, SOLUS+ which also gives you direct insight into your heating costs, from the moment you plug it in.
YOUR BILLS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Did you know each year, on average, 60% of our energy bills go directly to heating our homes? Yet, in most cases, we have no idea how much we’re actually spending on heating on a day by day basis. Our real-time energy monitoring allows you to see exactly how much you’re spending on your heating, in cost terms, right from your phone. It might seem like a small thing, but it’s all about understanding how you’re spending your money and getting smarter with it.
SOLUS+ IS SMART: CONTROL YOUR HEATING FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR PHONE
Each SOLUS+ unit comes with a temperature/humidity sensor and an app that gives you the tools to control your home heating and monitor your heating costs. The app comes with a range of smart features, allowing you to manage your heating more effectively, save money and reduce your impact on the environment. Being in control of your heating bill just got a whole lot easier.
Smart Zoning: When using SOLUS+ as a whole home heating solution, you can control heating and comfort levels on a room by room basis. Why heat the whole home when you could be saving precious energy and money? Smart zoning gives you more control, comfort and cost efficiency.
Integrations: Out of the box, our smart controls will integrate with Google Home and Alexa meaning you can get the most out of your preferred smart home system.
DESIGNED WITH YOUR HOME IN MIND
SOLUS+ comes in two sizes; M1 and M2. Designed to heat 15sqm and 20sqm with rated inputs of 450W and 800W respectively, they are crafted from ultra-lightweight tempered glass, with a total thickness of only 10mm. With a total weight of 4.5kg and 9kg respectively, SOLUS+ is both sleek and portable. Available in both black or white. SOLUS+ can be used with included wall mounts or freestanding (Model M1 only and feet sold separately) giving you the flexibility to integrate SOLUS into your home, however, you prefer.
GRAPHENE-BASED HEATING TECHNOLOGY
At KOLEDA we have years of R&D behind our unique patent pending graphene-based compound that is cost effective and simple to manufacture on an industrial scale. The SOLUS+ is the first commercial application of our patent pending compound.Our graphene-based compound has numerous advantages over other competing products in its class.
ZERO INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE COSTS
The simple design and portability of SOLUS+ mean that it’s a system designed to grow with you as your lifestyle and home changes. Homeowners and renters alike, benefit from SOLUS+, by simply plugging directly into a mains socket and then taking SOLUS with them when they move.
Unlike more complex heating systems such as heat pumps or gas central heating, SOLUS+ requires no ongoing maintenance costs. Saving you time and hassle each year.
The lifecycle of traditional electric space heaters is very short when used continuously. The technology behind SOLUS+ means that our heating element won’t burn out and will not need to be maintained.
Since SOLUS+ is smart, we keep up with your needs by releasing free software updates on our app to improve the range of functionality and make your smart home system better.
JOIN THE HEATING REVOLUTION
Here at KOLEDA we believe in doing things differently. Heating is one of our basic needs, but for far too long, heating our homes has been more complex and opaque than it should be.
We believe in changing that and SOLUS+ is the first step in creating a smarter, more transparent and cost-efficient home for everyone. By backing SOLUS+ at 40% off RRP, you will become a part of our incredible community of backers and share ideas for new features, give feedback on our products and help us test the new SOLUS+ app, so together we can build something that will radically change homes around the world.
CERTIFICATION & COST EFFICIENCY RESEARCH
We have years of research and development behind SOLUS+. We’re also pleased to announce that we have now received our certifications from TUV Nord to certify that SOLUS conforms to the EN 60335-2-30 and EN 60335-1 standards for home heaters and home appliances. These certifications ensure SOLUS meets the highest European safety standards. Moreover, the SOLUS+ M1 and M2 heaters have an IP44 rating as issued by TUV Nord, meaning that they are protected from water splashes in all directions. This allows our heater to be used safely in bathrooms and kitchens, where resistance to water splashes and moisture is needed. Our heaters also comply with the more recent EU Lot 20 Legislation.
There is always risk of injury from touching any form of electric heater and SOLUS+ panels are no different. However, a key benefit of SOLUS+ panels, unlike conventional heaters, is that they can be mounted higher up on walls or ceilings – reducing the likelihood of accidentally touching them or falling against them. We always advise this, especially in areas where young children or the elderly are present.
SOLUS+ PRESS FEATURES
WHAT STAGE OF PRODUCTION IS SOLUS+ AT?
Here at KOLEDA we have sourced, and have agreements in place, for every single component of SOLUS+. Over the last 12 months, we have built over 120+ versions of the SOLUS+ heater and are now ready to release into production the SOLUS+ models M1 and M2. We have our own manufacturing facility in Europe (Riga, Latvia) that has been built for the sole purpose of producing SOLUS+ units.
The hardware behind our smart heater is in place and the SOLUS + app is currently in development. We are working with top design agencies and focus groups to provide a UX centred around our customer’s needs, ensuring that the SOLUS+ app is intuitive and easy to use. As we develop our app further we will invite you to sign up and be one of our first testers, to ensure the product is right for all of our customers.
