Energy Management Systems InstallationEnergy systems, lighting and heating are now being scrutinised very carefully by governments anxious to reduce the nation's energy consumption and by individual home owners anxious to reduce their energy bills.
The building industry is only just starting to come to terms with these new requirements but, still, in most new houses no provision is made to reduce the carbon footprint or to measure the amount of energy used so that the home owner can start to control where the energy goes.
Advanced Energy Management SystemsThe key to successfully controlling and reducing energy consumption is to measure what is being used.
This can be done in two ways. The first is cheaper and involves measuring the power consumption of each item which is already installed in the home. This builds up a picture of which devices consume the most and how much they are used. You the home owner can then decide how much energy each individual or appliance should use and in this way change the overall energy consumption.
The second way is to measure the energy consumption in real time. This involves installing sensors and measuring devices and connecting them to a computer which can perform the calculations needed. Real time graphs are produced by this means and this is a powerful tool to understanding exactly how much energy is used at every moment during the day.
The addition of the sensors and measuring devices can be included in the design of the heating and lighting control system and will not add greatly to the cost.
