Improving the heating eciency of detached houses by instant messaging

Abstract [en]

House heating is responsible for substantial energy consumption in industrialized

countries. However, the climate control in detached houses is often sub

optimally done. These climate controllers are usually composed by subsystems

that have limited information about the state of the building. Improvements

usually requires large investments from the house owner, unless new sensor networks

technologies are adopted.

In this Master thesis, how to improve the eciency of house heating using

instant messaging (IM) is investigated. Devices in an inhabited house have been

congured to be connected by an IM client. This allows to perform automatic

control through a simple software. The dynamical model of the heating and

cooling system is studied and the relevant sensor measurements are identied.

The possible reduction in heat consumption is quantied by simulations. It is

shown that the method is applicable, and that it can result in a reduction of the

heat consumption in detached houses, even by using a small subset of potential

sensor measurements.
