Demtroys approach: Recover up to 35% of your heating costs
The Demtroys™ System is an effective solution to reduce heating costs. How? By automatically regulating the heating capacity required for your building based on external environmental conditions.
Heating overcapacity in buildings
Based on North-American construction standards, our buildings must withstand temperatures of up to – 30 Celcius degrees. Consequently, our heating systems have a heating capacity that can reach up to 10W per square foot to resist extreme cold temperatures. This heating capacity remains the same in summer and winter even if we have only 8 to 10 days of extremely cold weather every year. For the best part of the year, your building therefore has significant heating overcapacity.
With a temperature sensor installed outside the building, the Demtroys™ System can modulate the amount of energy required to ensure your clients' comfort. All losses due to heating overcapacity are then eliminated. As the outside temperature goes down, the heating capacity goes up, and vice versa.
This way, residents can manage their own temperature levels and comfort zone but the maximum heating power applied to each unit or sector of the building is managed so that if they waste heat by leaving windows or doors open, they will need to change their behaviour. The power limit changes dynamically so that in the case of lower temperatures, more power is available to maintain comfortable temperatures. Limiting the heating power in this way – depending on the case – can save up to 35% of energy costs. (See the figure up right)
Configure your Demtroys™ System based on your needs
The user-friendly interface of the Demtroys™ System control panel allows you to configure the energy management of your building as you see fit.
For example, the system can manage rooms or condo units in your building on one single energy management program or, for maximum control, you can configure up to eight different control sectors for your building, based on cardinal points or floors (see the figure beside).
