The Way Households Use the Central Heating System: Observed by a Daily Charge Heat-Energy Consumption Measuring Test
The pattern of using the household billing to promote heating energy savings has become a focus discussion in the current national energy conservation. Nowadays the average energy consumption in China is 2 to 3 times than the developed countries with the same weather conditions, equivalent to the level of developed countries in 60 to 70 years. We report a daily heat-energy consumption measuring test in Beijing since 2009, the result shows that 90% of the total households we tested never change their valves to regulate the heat exchange systems in two winters, the one at least change their valves once are about 5%. So that the way households use the central heating is not fit for the need to save heat-energy.
