“Fairness for all, in Electrically Heated Homes”

 

Savings of 30%+ can be achieved by using FairUsage, so how does it work?

At the heart of the controller is a state-of-the-art microprocessor with 8 temperature sensors, 8 occupancy sensors and 8 mains electricity relays. This can manage and control a block of 8 apartments. The program inside the controller has the following functions:

  • Accurately switching on/off electric heater using a heating diary. Heating is not left on during weekends, holidays or planned absences, unless the apartment is being used. For each separate apartment
    • The heating diary can be different.
    • Different set-points at different times of the day – different conditions for different people.
  • A “self learning” heat-loss algorithm that works out the heat-loss profile of a particular apartment. This allows the controller to switch the heating on later (and off earlier) on warm days and earlier/later for cold days, automatically adjusting the heating depending on how warm it is outside.
  • Automatic occupancy detection allowing the temperature to reduce to a background when the apartment is not used and quickly bringing it up to temperature when people return.
  • Gradient control of room temperatures at different times of the day.
  • User “heat me now” buttons that revert back so the heating is not left on too high so as to affect behavioural change.
  • User “boost” button that degrades back to setpoint slowly so no sudden drop in temperature.
  • Night setback temperature, reducing the night heating by a few degrees to still keep 24/7 operations warm whilst saving energy and money. Particularly useful for healthcare installations.
  • Electricity usage monitoring from pulse meters to calculate accurate minute-by-minute costings together with kWh’s and CO2 statistics.
  • Email/text alerts if:
    • A heater fails
    • Abnormally high temperature (fire?)
    • Abnormally low temperature

HeatingSave’s ‘FairUsage’ System is a fully functional IT based Energy Management system. Fully scalable from a single building to a large international network of multi-site businesses specifically with electric heating systems. FairUsage will efficiently and cost effectively manage and cost reduced your energy as well as alerting you via email or SMS messaging of equipment failures and process warnings, enabling you to take action, often before your contemporaries are even aware a problem has taken place. Distributed web based processing can be placed on your internal intranet or cloud computing hosted to allow you to better manage your business infrastructure like never before. The automatic processing nature of the FairUsage Intelligent Controllers maintain comfort conditions and give you peace of mind. Utility bills and other manually input data combine with automatic data from our control systems. The advanced PC software gives you full control over the costs, CO2 statistics and graphical pyramid reporting of energy usage of the entire site. A first class energy management so that you can better manage the ever increasing energy bill.

Compatible with almost every make electric heating system, each HeatingSave FairUsage Controller can manage multiple heaters. The mobile software operates from any 3G device and displays data both numerically and graphically. Control of the heating and cooling from anywhere in the world, with an Internet or mobile connection.

The main features of HeatingSave Fair Usage System are:

      • Multiple heating/cooling pattern control with an integrated diary function so the heating is not on during weekends or holidays unless the building is being used – saving up to 30%.
      • Advanced heat-loss algorithm manages multiple heating/cooling zones applying energy at the last moment or switching off early to minimize energy usage. Automatic outside temperature compensation and climate control – save up to another 10%.
      • Gradient control of room temperatures at different times of the day.
      • Automatic occupancy detection allowing the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
      • Night setback temperature, reducing the night heating by a few degrees to still keep 24/7 operations warm whilst saving energy and money.
      • Network and web based software using standard large database structures to create a structure of properties and heating systems within your organisation. Multiple graphical and site schematics allow you to manage thousands of buildings, their infrastructure and maintenance.

HeatingSave FairUsage comprises:

      • HeatingSave FairUsage Intelligent Controller
      • 8 room temperature sensors
      • 8 occupancy sensors
      • HeatingSave FairUsage PC software
      • Installation instructions.
      • Additional sub-unit controllers are available to extend your system. These additional networked sub-controllers add 8 analogue, 8 digital inputs and 8 relays at a time to the standard system, to a maximum of 13 sub-controllers per main controller; but millions of controllers can be added to a system. The only limit being a unique Internet IP address.

Organisations that will typically benefit from HeatingSave FairUsage will be multi-sited private and public sector facilities including university halls and housing, social housing, hotels/inns/motels, sheltered housing, hospitals, infirmaries, hostels and boarding apartments, care homes and healthcare centres.
