Smart Heating Systems for Cost-Effective Retrofitting

E. Fabrizio, M. Ferrara and V. Monetti,    Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy

Abstract

The chapter aims at providing a picture of the most recent advances in hydronic heating systems that can be applied in case of retrofits. The great potential of such technology is the possibility to dramatically reduce the energy demand for space heating simply with a better control. After the description of the technological features of the smart devices that can be applied at the various levels, the applications in retrofit are discussed and evaluated in terms of cost optimality. Finally, we present a focus on the application of thermostatic radiator valves, reporting the results from some ...
