Presence-controlled heating adjustment in various zones can be applied in almost any kind of building. Office buildings, private households, and public institutions, such as universities and schools, are particularly well-suited as these buildings have many different heating zones with potential for individual temperature setting. Heating control that individually considers single zones while taking into account the respective presence or lack of presence in these zones thus offers the potential to reduce energy costs as well as the possibility of increasing thermal comfort.
- Individual temperature control of various room and building zones
- Reduction in energy costs through targeted control of the room temperature in the event that people are present in individual zones
- Improved consideration of personal heat perception by observing the operational temperature
Potential areas of application
- Private households
- Universities, schools, etc.
- And much more
