British Gas to integrate Samsung technology24th January 2024
UK: British Gas is to integrate with Samsung’s SmartThings app to help customers optimise energy use of their home appliances and include Samsung heat pumps in its product offering.
The integration of SmartThings Energy and British Gas’ PeakSave demand flexibility scheme informs customers, via smartphone, TV or other compatible devices, of the best times to use household appliances to save money.
British Gas will now also include Samsung heat pumps in its offering to British households. The venture will see specially trained British Gas surveyors and engineers working with consumers to explain the benefits of heat pumps and then conducting the installations on-site. Samsung will be supporting workforce training.
British Gas also offers customers the chance to purchase heat pumps through flexible financing methods.
“This collaboration will help educate consumers on the benefits of moving to heat pumps as well as how to manage their overall energy use through our leading home management app, SmartThings,” said Samsung UK’s chief customer officer Deborah Honig.
Catherine O’Kelly, MD of British Gas Energy at British Gas, commented: “This is the first step in our collaboration with Samsung, which will see us combine our strengths and bring more innovative solutions to the market.”
