Utvärdering av Ngenic Tune : Smart styrning av värmesystem i småhus / Smart heating control for single family houses

In 2016, the global energy consumption was represented to 20 % by buildings, where energy use supplied heating, cooling, lightning and water heating. For the following years until 2040, global energy consumption is expected to grow 48 %, which in turn make demand for energy efficient measures. For the years of 2030 as well 2050, the EU-commission have set up climate goals to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. Along with this were presented strategies for meeting future climate goals, where one strategy is about increasing overall energy efficiency, which includes buildings. One way of increasing building energy efficiency is through implementation of smart heating control, a cost-effective solution which through a retrofitting measure may reduce building energy consumption. For this paper, a smart thermostat named Ngenic Tune was implemented into a selection of single family houses in Borlänge district heating network. The purpose was to study improvements in thermal comfort and reduction of return temperature from domestic substations. Through a combined survey-interview study of Ngenic Tune users, the study revealed promising potentials for large scale implementation of the technology. The smart thermostat also showed tendency of lowering the return temperature.
