Smart home energy savings - update for 2010
Here’s an updated graph showing the ongoing reduction in energy for our smart home. Driven mainly by continual improvement in the algorithms that control the heating, air conditioning and lighting the overall consumption of gas and electricity has continued to decline throughout
- It appears however that I am approaching the limit as to what is possible as the trend lines are beginning to flatten out. Going forward I’ll continue to try to improve the algorithms but I’ll also be on the lookout for any parasitic power-consuming devices and I’ll be dealing with them using techniques like the smart power strip I mentioned here.
