iFLOW Smart Hybrid Heating Controller - Product Council

The iFLOW Smart Hybrid Heating Controller is an advanced HVAC switching device. On a call for heat from a thermostat, the iFLOW Controller will select either heat pump or furnace operation based on customizable criteria. This criteria can be selected and controlled by the homeowner, but can also be customized to have some features controlled exclusively by the utility for demand response purposes. All software and hardware design is done in-house within iFLOW in Toronto, so customization of the operation to match any utility’s preferences is possible.

In addition to the features and functionality of heat pump thermostats, the iFLOW controller includes these additional features:

  • The iFLOW controller does not require the homeowner to purchase a heat pump thermostat;
  • The iFLOW controller can use the existing wiring in a home (only 3 or 4 wires?; not a problem);
  • The iFLOW can operate this switching with or without an internet connection;
  • The iFLOW comes with sensors that connect within the mechanical room to detect and determine proper equipment operation;

The iFLOW provides easy-to-understand, advanced HVAC operational diagnostics;

This iFLOW controller automatically selects the best appliance to heat your home at that time for optimal comfort and savings, and reduced greenhouse emissions. Combining the iFLOW Smart Hybrid Heating Controller with an advanced Heat Pump can double the efficiency of your heating system.
