The founders wanted to create not only a profitable but meaningful business with an ecological impact.

Four times more money is spent on heating than telecommunications. 

Heating of buildings causes one-third of greenhouse gas emissions. The amount is two times more than traffic emissions.

Everyone has experience of poor heating, it is too cold or hot. Heating problems exist especially in the old building stock, which is renewed only 1% a year.

Fourdeg improves the quality of heating, saves heating energy and reduces emissions. All parties from residents and employees to property owners, real estate services and energy companies benefit from our service.
