Common failures leading to energy waste

• Designers tend to err on the side of caution. There is less risk in overdesigning than underdesigning. Accordingly systems are often overpowered and therefore wasteful.

• Often the most convenient operating strategy is for switches to default to on whereas manual on and automatic off is the more energy efficient provided safety is not compromised.

• Small demands like domestic hot water can require whole systems to be in operation as stated earlier.

• Inadequate monitoring systems can fail to identify progressive failure.

• Intrinsic faults in the system may remain hidden but may nevertheless adversely affect energy use without any detectable effect on service.
