The Energy Saving Trust, one of the UK’s leading organisations set up to address the damaging effects of climate change, is the latest organisation to enlist Gemini Data Loggers UK. The two companies are working together on a research project designed to maximise energy efficiency within housing schemes. The Energy Saving Trust is currently undertaking field trials of advanced heating controls in a sample of 570 residential homes using Tinytag temperature data loggers.
The overall objective of the advanced controls field trials will be to establish the level of energy savings generated by the new controls, with in-situ measurements being undertaken over an 18 month period. The loggers were posted to the households for self-installation; four non intrusive data loggers being placed in each house, three inside and one outdoor. Later on, the loggers were retrieved for data download, again by post; the light weight, small dimensions and robustness of the logger proving advantageous in this respect.
Before and after monitoring results will be compared using Tinytag Explorer software and it is anticipated that a 10% saving can be made on household energy bills.
Tinytag data loggers have been successfully used in many other building energy efficiency projects to ensure maximum comfort for occupants and to protect contents, by monitoring their HVAC system for example. The low cost, reliability factor and ease of use has also been favoured by universities, who have used the loggers on many important missions worldwide to understand the impact of global warming.
Tinytag data loggers demonstrate that they are an economic monitoring solution to many different energy efficiency missions.
