Appliance consumption can be aggregated to any time interval
Monthly aggregations are used to evaluate and verify system settings and performance.
What the Chart Shows
The red bar charts on the left show furnace consumption by month and hour. As expected there is little to no furnace consumption from May through September. December shows a delayed morning peak and generally higher hourly consumption compared to other winter months due to residents being “home for the holidays”.
The green chart shows gas consumption for the hot water tank. Gas demand for the hot water tank shows little to no seasonal variation.
Why it is Important
This chart lets analysts quickly confirm system performance. If furnace gas demand extended into the summer months, or a seasonal pattern appeared for the hot water tank further investigations and/or system configuration would be warranted.
Overall gas demand is minimized in an optimized system.
