model energy management
About half the operating costs attributable to the area of heat generation; which in turn, about 80% is spent for the production of space heating and 20% for the hot water. In the overwhelming number of residential units, the heat is generated by a central heating system or home docking station (remote or local heating system).
For the recording of heat consumption is for residential systems with more than three residential units, a usage-based metering of suitable measuring devices required by law. While in previous years, the collection was mostly about simple measuring tubes, under the new rules, only the use of electronic heat cost allocators allowed.
Nevertheless, many research projects of the plumbing and heating industry have ("optimus") and the housing industry associations ("alpha") as well as other private companies to demonstrate the measurement services and energy management area considerable savings already on an optimized operation of heating systems.
The focus of these management concepts usually is the implementation of a hydraulic balance, the installation of double regulating and regulated efficiency pumps, the use of centrally controlled, remote-acting control systems as well as energy data monitoring of the central heating system, by which - similar to an EKG - any faults or defects in the setting of the heating system detected and, based on the setting can be optimized. Via such a facility management can increase the efficiency of a system and the primary energy consumption by an average of 10 - to be reduced 15% (at peak by more than 30%).
