SMART CENTRAL HEATING CONTROL AND MAINTENANCE WITH AI

Traditional central heating systems fail to adjust to changing weather, living patterns and thermodynamic properties of the building, which results in overheating, inefficiency, high costs and poor indoor climate conditions.Danfoss provides software solutions using artificial intelligence to optimally control and monitor centrally heated buildings.

In Europe, 30 percent of all energy consumption goes to heat or cool buildings. Danfoss has the solution to lower energy usage and improve indoor climate by adding a digital element: Leanheat software.

Traditional central heating systems fail to adjust to changing weather, living patterns and thermodynamic properties of the building, which results in overheating, inefficiency, high costs and poor indoor climate conditions.Danfoss provides software solutions using artificial intelligence to optimally control and monitor centrally heated buildings. The solution is scalable and retrofittable to existing building stock with wide integration to various controllers. Data from a heating room is combined with data collected from IoT(Internet of Things) sensors placed in the building’s apartments.

By processing the collected data with AI, the central heating can be controlled in an optimal manner taking into account the thermodynamic behaviour of the building; weather, ventilation, inhabitant living patterns, etc. The heating control adapts to the changing environment making the system maintenance free. The benefits to the heat providers and consumers are clear, with a potential saving in energy consumption of 10-20 per cent. Furthermore, the maintenance costs potentially decrease by 5 per cent, the peak capacity can be reduced by 15-30 per cent, the indoor climate improves, and lastly, district heating companies can optimise their production and network.
